The five good reasons why the U.S. should not try to reduce global warming

Here are the five good reasons why we should do nothing to reduce global warming:

I. Why should we do it if some other countries don’t do it?

Here's Why Cage Divers Don't Become Shark Bait
If you don’t close the door, why should I?


II. Human-caused global warming is not happening, no matter what 98% of scientists say

Fire? What fire? I see no fire.


III. Even if global warming is happening, it would cost too much to fix

We don’t want to pay for a baby sitter


IV. It would hurt businesses and cost jobs.

Don’t tell anyone. It’ll be bad for business.


V. Donald Trump

As with COVID-19, global warming is a Chinese hoax, and if we do nothing it will just go away like magic


The Wall Street Journal.
Biden to Propose Cutting U.S. Emissions in Half by 2030 Andrew Restuccia, Timothy Puko, Sha Hua “Unless China stops its uninhibited growth of emissions, anything we do will be offset fourfold by the Chinese,” said Rep. Garret Graves (R., La.), the top Republican on the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.
Mr. Biden’s emissions target is certain to face criticism from GOP lawmakers and some in the business community who worry that the administration’s climate policies could harm the economy. Rep. Michael McCaul (R., Texas) criticized the Paris agreement this week, arguing it “disproportionately penalizes American workers.”
The New York Times Amid Biden Climate Push, a Question Looms: Is America’s Word Good?
The question is dogging Biden as he tries to reassert the American role in other parts of the world stage after four years of Donald Trump’s America First isolationism.
Biden was vice president when the world applauded the Obama administration for resuming climate talks after his predecessor, George W. Bush, rejected the 1997 Kyoto Protocol climate treaty.
Now he’s trying to lead another comeback as the U.S. returns to the Paris Agreement that Trump deserted in a flashy show of defiance.
Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican leader, has already said his party will oppose Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which is the cornerstone of the administration’s efforts to meet current and future climate goals.
A group of Republican House leaders last week also introduced legislation calling for a wholesale renegotiation of the Paris Agreement and denounced Biden’s plans for global re-engagement.
Adam S. Posen, president of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said “Obviously, Trump made it worse because of incompetence and overt nationalism.”
These are the 130 current members of Congress who have doubted or denied climate change
Ellen Cranley Apr 29, 2019 Collin Peterson is notably the only Democrat to appear on this list.
Politico reported in January 2019 that though House Agriculture Committee Chairman Peterson was feeling “some” pressure to pursue action on climate policy, but said climate change policy poses a threat to agricultural workers and he believes that activists “would like us to quit farming.”

Actual Twitter message from Mitch McConnell:

“This Administration’s zeal for costly climate policy at home is not matched by our biggest competitors.

China’s share of emissions is nearly double ours. The Paris Agreement is largely toothless. Democrats can kill U.S. jobs & industries with no real impact on global emissions.”

So there you have it. The Republicans have good reasons for not wanting to help control global warming.

The destruction of the earth and the future for our children and grandchildren is not as important as those five good reasons.

  • Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  • Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics. Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps: Ten Steps To Prosperity:

  1. Eliminate FICA
  2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone
  3. Social Security for all
  4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone
  5. Salary for attending school
  6. Eliminate federal taxes on business
  7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually.
  8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
  9. Federal ownership of all banks
  10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 


The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

  1. Someone has to set the pace, plant the seed and make it grow, and it should be U.S. whether or not business likes it. Little Greta Thunberg from Sweden can’t be, and doesn’t want to be, the only one in the race. Or is it “..and a child shall lead them.”


    1. First, American politicians need to have a moral agenda. So far, all I see is, “What does my base want?” and “How will I get votes?”

      Biden’s border actions (can’t call them “policies”) don’t seem any different from Obama’s and Trump’s, both of who were immigration disasters. No moral agenda, there.


  2. Hi Rodger and readers

    these two are very sound
    said you A) very, very sound “Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.
    B) Federal ownership of all banks [ if only your federal gov could be relied on]
    My question to the US of A is, having created all this money in the past (and accelerated it via reselling of cheaper imports at multiple markups, just as UK did, without any ring-fenced tax on those gains [that could for nearly two decades, have tackled renewable energy large-scale, Floating ice protection (Kallio FRGS, Hansen, etc]

    Q: BOTH that and reselling property, (similarly multiple mark-ups, devaluing dollars’ value in house-price terms which were free money to banks adding fuel to the fire and the consumerism) have created Dermand for Dollars, actually lowering returns to other countries compared to your dollar: SHOULDN’T THERE BE A RETURN to Florida, etc and countries lke Bangladesh. a1) to fix the climate first before shooting for the stars using all that ingenuity BEFORE NEW YORK SINKS and
    b1) Couldn’t 20-year money at 1.5% with one-third returned to Publicly needed green information (thus 0.5%)
    ENABLE a Faster Green Deal, thorough enveloping of all your homes and buildings, eaves and floor losses eliminated, EWI (and internally room by room) summer-solar Warmth storage deep below them. Savings = Costs. GreenER New Deal, show UK the way forward [the basis on which the green deal was first proposed. Avoids the Arguments. Thanks for the feedback: Yes, also in War both sides loose, let them that fire the weapons fix the damage
    best Regards
