Why Paris Agreement will make the planet poorer


The riots against rising fuel taxation in France, and Paris in near lockdown following what’s been described as a day of rage, have put the Paris Climate Change Agreement under the spotlight.

President Trump took the opportunity to tweet:

‘Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes? The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!’

We think he has a point. And so does PragerU.

In this video Bjorn Lomborg explains why the Agreement won’t do anything to save the planet but will make everyone poorer – except politicians and environmentalists.
