Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

As the leftists continue to churn themselves into a frenzy regarding President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, Nashville Mayor Megan Berry steps it up a notch and takes it to a whole new level.

Her statements have in effect stated that the Constitution does not apply here in Nashville by declaring that as mayor she will not be bound by Article 1, Section 10 of the United States Constitution, which prohibits state governments specifically, and metropolitan governments within states by extension, from entering “into any treaty, alliance, or confederation.”

Barry said in the statement –

The United States of America should be a global leader in addressing the dire impact of climate change on our civilization, and it is very disappointing that President Trump does not see that. As a member of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, I am committed to meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, and working with corporations and citizens to do the same, even if the President is not. There’s too much at stake for cities not to lead on this issue, and Nashville will. 

In 2016, Mayor Barry formed the Livable Nashville Committee, comprised of leaders from Nashville’s public, private, environmental, academic, and philanthropic sectors, and charged its members with developing a shared vision for protecting and enhancing Nashville’s livability and environmental quality. Draft recommendations, which include reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, are available to review.

According to its website, the Global Covenant of Mayors to which Barry has pledged her allegiance “is an international alliance of cities and local governments with a shared long-term vision of promoting and supporting voluntary action to combat climate change and move to a low emission, resilient society.”

The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy formally brings together the Compact of Mayors and the European Union’s Covenant of Mayors, the world’s two primary initiatives of cities and local governments to advance their transition to a low emission and climate resilient economy, and to demonstrate their global impact.

The Compact of Mayors was a global coalition of mayors and city officials pledging to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions, enhance resilience to climate change, and to track their progress transparently. The Compact was launched in September of 2014 by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, Michael R. Bloomberg. The Compact was activated under the leadership of the global city networks — C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (ICLEI) and the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) — and with support from UN-Habitat, the UN’s lead agency on urban issues.

Created in 2008 to implement the EU’s 2020 climate and energy targets, the Covenant of Mayors has firm commitments of over 6800 cities in 58 countries resulting in Action Plans with an investment of over €110 billion.

Like a number of leftist and progressive mayors of cities around the United States, mostly Democrats and a handful of RINOs, Barry also signed the “Statement from The Climate Mayors in Response to President Trump’s Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement,” released on the very same day.

The President’s denial of global warming is getting a cold reception from America’s cities.

As 187 US Mayors representing 52 million Americans, we will adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement. We will intensify efforts to meet each of our cities’ current climate goals, push for new action to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, and work together to create a 21st century clean energy economy.

We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we’ll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks.

The world cannot wait — and neither will we.

Two other mayors in Tennessee have joined Berry in throwing out the Constitution in their efforts to cost jobs, kill economies, and defy President Trump – Madeline Rogero of Knoxville and Andy Berke of Chattanooga. These so-called “Climate Mayors” are declaring their own foreign policy putting them in direct opposition to the President of the United States duly elected by the American people.  Unlike these so-called “Climate Mayors” President Trump actually HAS the constitutional authority to determine American foreign policy per our governing documents.

According to Constitutional law experts across the nation, such declarations are a direct violation of Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution of the United States.

Former assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy wrote at National Review stating –

“The fact that the sun rose again this morning was less predictable than the media-Democrat hysteria over President Trump’s entirely reasonable decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Convention on climate change. The decision was clearly right on the merits: The pact, which would do nothing meaningful to address global temperatures, is an exercise in progressive preening, touted by hypocrites who zip to and from climate confabs in their private jets — the kind of “Do as I say, not as I do” lovers of humanity (but loathers of people) who never take one plane when two are available.

Given the havoc the Paris Climate Agreement would have wrecked should have been obvious and indisputable, not momentous. That it was NOT is a measure of detachment from our constitutional moorings and shows us just how precarious of a position we are in as a nation –

By dropping out of the Paris Climate Agreement, the US avoids multiple disastrous effects of the agreement, such as –

  1.  Goodbye to ‘American Last.’ The Paris agreement was basically an attempt to halt climate change on the honor system.  As a result, it was likely that the US and other developed, wealthy European nations would have adopted and implemented severe climate change rules.  All while many of the world’s governments would avoid doing anything that would slow their own economies. The agreement was little more than an attempt to for a redistribution of US and European wealth, sacrificing the strongest world economies to the pseudoscience of climate change.
  2. Industrial Carnage. The regulations necessary to implement the Paris agreement would have cost the U.S. industrial sector 1.1 million jobs, according to a study commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. These are jobs the American economy can ill afford to lose in the areas of cement, iron, and steel, and petroleum refining, resulting in significant and sharp industrial decline.
  3. Hollowing Out Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. The industrial carnage would have been concentrated on four states, according to the Chamber of Commerce study. Michigan’s GDP would shrink by 0.8 percent and employment would contract by 74,000 jobs. Missouri’s GDP would shrink by 1%. Ohio’s GDP would contract 1.2%. Pennsylvania’s GDP would decline by 1.8% and the state would lose 140,000 jobs. States that have ALREADY been hit to a significant degree in the industrial and manufacturing sectors.
  4. Smashing Small Businesses, Helping Big Business. The backers of the climate deal read like a who’s who dossier of big business in America, at the expense of small businesses across the country. Companies like Apple, General Electric, Intel, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, General Mills, Walmart, DuPont, Unilever, and Johnson & Johnson overwhelmingly supported the deal as they can more easily cope with costly regulations that their smaller counterparts can ill afford.
  5. Making America Poorer Again.  A Heritage Foundation study found that the Paris agreement would have increased the electricity costs of an American family of four by between 13% and 20% annually. It forecast a loss of income of $20,000 by 2035 continuing the devastating trend of American families paying more while making less. 
  6. Much Poorer. The overall effect of the agreement would have been to reduce U.S. GDP by over $2.5 trillion and elimination of 400,000 jobs by 2035, according to Heritage’s study. All of which would exacerbate already existing problems with government funding and deficits, make Social Security solvency more challenging, and increase reliance on government’s spending to support households.

The Paris Convention is a treaty. Under the Constitution, a treaty does not become law binding on the United States unless the president submits it to the Senate, obtains two-thirds approval and then ratifies the treaty.  The Senate does not ratify treaties. The president does the ratifying, but only if and when the Senate has consented. Under the Paris Climate Agreement that never occurred, nor was it given the opportunity to do so. At its bare essential objective, the left attempted to impose the Paris agreement without making Democratic office-seekers accountable for it. That is exactly what the Constitution is designed to prevent.
