These 81 Companies Support Obama’s “Climate Change” Agenda (10 Pics)


By on Thursday, October 22, 2015

 President Obama is absolutely determined to go out of office as the”Climate Change” President.  It doesn’t matter if the whole “Climate Change/Global Warming” movement is a scam designed to empower governments and destroy private property rights and free-market businesses.
The President, a thoroughly committed socialist, has found what he thinks is his “golden ticket” to immortality by pushing this radical agenda on all Americans, and the rest of the world.
Now, it has come to light that he has twisted the arms of 81 major US companies to go along with his delusional scheme to destroy the American economy in the name of “saving the planet.”

CNS News reports:
Eighty-one major corporations with operations in the U.S.–including Google, Facebook, Apple, Coca Cola and General Motors–have taken a White House pledge “to demonstrate their support for action on climate change and the conclusion of a climate change agreement in Paris that takes a strong step forward toward a low-carbon, sustainable future.”
Signing the White House’s American Business Act on Climate Change Pledge shows a continuing commitment to action preventing global warming and is intended to set an example for other companies to pursue similar policies, according to a statement released by the White House.
It also shows the signatories’ support for the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, which will be held this November in Paris. “The Pledge…voices support for a strong outcome in the Paris climate negotiations.”
 This is at best stupid, at worst, deadly to US business.  The radical Obama EPA is seeking to cut emissions levels from just about every form of gas found in the atmosphere.
If these companies are just giving Obama lip service so they can be seen as “environmentally friendly”, it will backfire on them in a big way.
They are, in effect, giving the federal government control over their businesses – a huge recipe for disaster.
If they are seriously considering implementing Obama’s draconian guidelines in their businesses, all America consumers will suffer from the huge increases in costs for goods and services these new measures will require.
And, to support the upcoming gaggle of Communists meeting in Paris – seeking to destroy free markets around the world – is nothing short of committing economic suicide for these companies.
 CNS News has more:
The 81 companies “have operations in all 50 states, employ over 9 million people, represent more than $3 trillion in annual revenue, and have a combined market capitalization of over $5 trillion,” the White House said.
“We recognize that delaying action on climate change will be costly in economic and human terms,” the pledge states.
The president announced last November that he wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions economy-wide by 26 to 28 percent by 2025.
To accomplish that goal, Obama held a roundtable with top CEOs this week to discuss ways in which they can help to fight climate change in the U.S. and around the world.
However, the president said that the 81 companies that signed the pledge view his long-term plan to reduce carbon emissions by almost 6 million tons through 2030 as a positive step.

This will be yet one more failed socialist scheme which doesn’t work in the real world.  But, it will weaken the American economy further – one of Obama’s most heart-felt goals.
Let us hope that the Presidential election of 2016 will stop this rush off the cliff of sanity before too much damage is done.
