This Sunday, we are honored by the return to Lost Arts Radio of New American Magazine foreign correspondent Alex Newman. I invited Alex to share his insights on the Paris Climate Accord with us, since he was there in person when it was actually occurring. There has been extremely negative reaction, by our major media and liberal and progressive leaders, to President Donald Trump's withdrawal from this unratified treaty that Barack Obama accepted on behalf of the U.S. without the approval of Congress. Many in the general population who have been convinced by the media and others that the Paris Agreement was to save the Earth from global warming, have seen Donald Trump as a planetary villain, withdrawing from the agreement because of some pathological hatred of the Earth, or other character flaws the President has according to mainstream media sources.
But what is the real story about the Paris Agreement? What is in it, and exactly how was it going to save the Earth from global warming or climate change? We need to understand these things from a place of calm, non-partisan clarity, and then see what the US non-participation in the agreement really means. I don't know of anyone better to start this discussion with us than Alex Newman. I first was privileged to see Alex Newman on the Alex Jones Show, and was very impressed with his piercing commentary on world issues, and in fact at the time, Alex was reporting directly from Paris as the Agreement was being signed by many nations including ours. Understanding what the Paris Agreement really is can also help us get a deeper understanding of the bigger world situation that is going on right now. Hopefully filling in some of the gaps in our education on world events, puts us in a better position to see what we need to do to help sanity, peace, environmental stability and prosperity return to our world.
