House Speaker Nancy Pelosi flew out 3,781 miles to Madrid on Sunday with a gang of congressional Democrats to talk about fining people who fly unnecessarily.
Pelosi took a large delegation of Democrats to the United Nations COP25 climate change conference in Madrid where a key element will be to place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.”
Pelosi’s crew joins 25,000 people and 1500 journalists all FLYING into the Spanish capital to attend the meeting.
Pelosi abandons her post in Washington, making it difficult to pass an updated North American Trade deal by the end of 2019 which she previously advertised as “imminent.”
COP25 will also look to implement taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures.”
Pelosi’s team claims it will will seek to “reaffirm the commitment of the American people to combating the climate crisis” at the 2019 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also called COP25, her office said on Saturday confirming the trip.
Truthfully, however, Pelosi is prevented by law from conducting foreign policy or making any agreements with foreign leaders regarding sovereign treaties so the trip will serve as more of a vacation for the Speaker of the House.
“It is a privilege to accompany a high-level Congressional delegation to Spain to combat the existential threat of our time: the climate crisis,” Pelosi laughably said in the statement.
“Taking action to protect our planet is a public health decision for clean air and clean water for our children, an economic decision for creating the green, good-paying jobs of the future, a national security decision to address resource competition and climate migration and also a moral decision to be good stewards of God’s creation and pass a sustainable, healthy planet to the next generation,” she added.
President Donald Trump officially withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord in October as part of an election promise to voters, famously saying that he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”
As early as June, 2017 Trump said he was looking forward to exiting the agreement.
The president spoke then of following through on his commitments to the American people.
“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” Trump declared.
Compliance with the accord could have cost the U.S. “as much as 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025 according to the National Economic Research Associates,” said Trump. “This includes 440,000 fewer manufacturing jobs — not what we need…”
The final U.S. withdrawal from the landmark accord is scheduled for November 4, 2020, a day after the next presidential election.
Several Democratic presidential aspirants have said that, if elected, they would immediately return to the terrible agreement and making it obvious they don’t actually care for the American people.
