Katie Hopkins: Paris Accord Is 'Complete Fraud,' US 'Signed Away Billions'
DailyMail.com global columnist Katie Hopkins called the Paris climate deal an "absolute fraud," and said President Trump has shown "true leadership" by ditching it.
"All the United States is doing with the Paris accord is signing away billions of dollars to developing countries that create most of the emissions," Hopkins told host Abby Huntsman.
The president pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord on Thursday, saying it was a bad deal for the country and would hurt American workers.
The agreement, signed by former president Obama and almost 200 other countries in 2015, committed the United States to reducing carbon emissions 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2025. Meanwhile China and developing countries receive billions of dollars from the United States but are under no immediate obligation to cut emissions.
Hopkins related that back when she worked in the United Kingdom meteorological office she observed scientists "scare-mongering" and "using data in interesting ways to make the problem seem worse."
They were "virtually on their knees begging for grants," she recalled.
People should stop "dressing as polar bears" and start backing Trump, Hopkins concluded.
