Trump has Greenie Guardianistas pissing in their eco-friendly underpants

I loved this article from the Grauniad today. It reports from an energy conference in the USA where Donald Trump pledged to scrap the Paris ‘Climate Change’ deal and build a nice big pipeline to transport shale gas from Canada to the USA.

Reading it would have useless Greenie Guardianistas chortling in rage and pissing into their eco-friendly underpants. Yet, I imagine all my readers will be nodding their heads in agreement with everything Trump says.

Here’s the Guardian report:

At an oil and natural gas conference in North Dakota on Thursday, just minutes after he had celebrated hitting the 1,237 delegate mark  needed to formally clinch the party’s nomination, Trump gave a speech on energy policy that was largely shaped by advice from Kevin Cramer, a US representative from the state.

In a press conference before the event, Trump praised the advice of oil tycoon Harold Hamm. Hamm and Cramer then introduced him onstage.

Michael Brune, the director of an environmentalist group, was taken aback by Trump’s address. I have never heard more contradiction in one hour than I heard in the speech,” he told the GuardianThere are pools of oil industry waste water that are deeper than Trump’s grasp of energy.”

Trump gave the speech – which Brune also called “a jumbled collection of oil industry talking points that are devoid from reality in the market place” – in a packed arena that generated an atmosphere more like that of a campaign rally than a staid industry conference.

As he hit a number of familiar talking points, a crowd filled with his supporters raised chants of “build the wall”.

He did not directly address manmade climate change, which he has in the past called “a hoax invented by the Chinese“, but he took veiled shots at those who are concerned about global warming.

In addition to his pledge to pull out of the Paris climate deal, Trump promised to only work with “environmentalists whose only agenda is protecting nature” and to “focus on real environmental challenges, not the phony ones”.

He contrasted this approach with that of Hillary Clinton, whose plan to combat climate change he called “a poverty expansion agenda”. Trump also attacked renewable energy sources, claiming that solar energy was too expensive and attacking wind turbines for “killing eagles”.

On Thursday, Trump also made a unique argument about the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which would pump shale oil from Canada into the US.

Republicans have long supported the pipeline, which was opposed by environmentalists and cancelled by the Obama administration. In exchange for his approval of the pipeline, Trump said, the US would need a “significant piece” of its profits.

Cheering wildly, the crowd gave Trump a spontaneous standing ovation.

I will give you everything,” he promised them, adding: “I am the only one who will deliver.”

They seemed to believe it.

    I wonder if the Guardian Has ever published anything that was even the tiniest little bit challenging to the world view of the smug progressives who buy it.

    In news just in, a respected academic foundation announces that Brexit will cause all babies to be born with webbed feet.
