How's this for a high carbon footprint?
The atmosphere in Paris this week must be absolutely surreal. Two weeks after the deadly attacks by ISIS in Paris, the city is now host to world leaders discussing the REAL THREAT to life as we know it-Climate Change. After all, can't they see the leaves turning brown in the Tuileries?
And no surreal atmosphere would be complete without the presence of President Obama, who repeated his mantra that there could be no greater rebuke to terrorism than to go ahead with this inane conference of world leaders, some promising to turn over billions of dollars to the other world leaders who came with their hands out.
And not to be outdone, the anarchists of the world showed up to trample all over the candles set out on the Place de la Republique to honor the dead, get themselves sprayed by water cannons, and get arrested.
ISIS must be laughing.
Meanwhile, the US media is reporting opinions as facts as they trumpet Climate Change. The Orange County Register is devoting virtually all of page three today to articles about the conference that should be in their opinion section.
"World Leaders Gather to Try to Save Earth"
"I've come here personally, as the leader of the world's largest economy and the second-largest emitter, to say that the United States of America not only recognizes our role in creating this problem, we embrace our responsibility to do something about it," Obama told the conference."
Imagine, our president (not the leader of the world's largest economy) PERSONALLY went to Paris to once again apologize for America. And don't think that the leader of the world's largest emitter (China) is promising anybody in Paris anything.
And of course, the same evening Obama emitted those now-famous words, he and his colleagues were seen dining in one of Paris' most expensive eateries. ( I didn't know there was more than one way to mash peas.) But what about the rest of us at home who will have to foot the bill for all these agreements while trying to defend ourselves from Islamic terrorists?
We can always eat cake, right Michelle?
