The G20 Summit Continuously Void of Logic

Coming face to face for the first time, U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Hamburg, Germany on Friday, July 7. Many closely watched the encounter, hoping to grasp an understanding of the November 2016 U.S. presidential election and discern the future plan of foreign policy. Unfortunately, their highly anticipated meeting left questions unanswered as they both offered vague details of large issues. 

Putin and Trump’s sit-down was largely in part because of the G20 Summit. This overseas trip allowed Trump to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May, Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto, Chinese President Xi Jinping and other world leaders. German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s main goal for the summit was to have the G20 leaders contribute to solving the world’s problems such as climate change.


And according to China’s Xi Jinping, the way to do that is to open a world economy through a “multilateral trade regime:” otherwise known as world governance that will trample our rights and freedoms, increase our taxes and take control of our energy use. Many are familiar with Trump’s “America First” campaign promise that led to the U.S. backing out of the Paris climate accord, but will one country be able to stop the wheels previously in motion?


Those who oppose “saving the planet” and giving away all of our resources to the Paris climate agreement have been accused of committing a crime against humanity. A contributor for The New American, Rebecca Terrell, showcases the severity of standing against the tide.


Besides glacier melt, sea level rise, farmland destruction, food shortages, floods, heat waves, drought, insect-borne diseases, violent storms, and species extinction, Trump is now accused of aiding and abetting what Cohn calls "climate crimes," threatening "international peace and security" and the "very foundations of civilization." If that sounds slightly to the Chicken-Little extreme, keep in mind that climate change has been accused of everything from increasing heroin addiction to grizzly bear attacks, from rising rates of heart attack, stroke, asthma, and food poisoning to a faster rotation of planet Earth, from the collapse of gingerbread houses in Sweden to record numbers of UFO sightings in Great Britain. And let's not forget that Obama even blamed terrorism on global warming.


The main theme that is being pushed and forced upon the public is that the debate is “settled” and that climate change by human activity is a “fact.” It’s what the science establishment says.


Unknown to the average citizen is that there are tens of thousands of reputable scientists that disagree. It’s time that their voices are heard! It’s not up to politicians to decide science; that responsibility lies with scientists and it’s only logical. But on the other hand, that’s what is being thrown away these days, logic. Join with like-minded citizens to ensure science stays with scientists and logic is restored. Our politicians must be held accountable for shoving one-sided agendas down our throats. We should also hold them accountable to uphold Constitutional principles and knowing their limits.
