Tillerson Signs Docs with Climate Change Statement, Insisting U.S. ‘Still Reviewing’ Policy

May 13, 2017

TillersonAs a member of the Arctic Council, the United States has signed onto two agreements that include efforts to protect the Arctic from climate change, linking it to human activity and calling on global efforts to reduce its effects, including enforcement of the Paris Agreement.

“The Arctic Council, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, has proven to be an indispensable forum in which we can pursue cooperation,” Tillerson said in remarks to the council. “I want to affirm that the United States will continue to be an active member in this council.”

“Foreign ministers of the eight Arctic States signed the third binding agreement negotiated under the auspices of the Arctic Council, the ‘Agreement on Enhancing International Arctic Scientific Cooperation,’ which will help to facilitate entry and exit of persons, equipment, and material; access to research infrastructure and facilities; access to research areas; the use of traditional and local knowledge; and education, career development, and training opportunities for students and early-career scientists,” the council press release said.

    Maybe Tillerson should explain why he is signing away our ability to have control over who and who does not has access to the Arctic, just the Arctic Council has that ability, and since when does the U.S. give away the right to access to anything that might be of value or come back to haunt us in the future. What happens if the Arctic Council decides in the future to kick the U.S. OUT OF THE COUNCIL because like the U.N. right now the council’s members will be all our enemies. Should not that be the responsibility of Trump to sign something that gives away our rights to access to the Arctic.

      Tillerson wants to allow Exxon to drill in Russian Arctic waters. Russia allows oil spills, the USA does not.

        Hi Charlie: Oh, I get it, so that is what is going on. Well, I have no objections to not freezing where I live so I guess I will have to wait to see if I end up agreeing or not agreeing. Thanks Charlie. Nice to meet you.

  • DrBillLemoine says:

    It’s hard to believe that Trump approved something based on science and environmental protection with the Arctic accord signature. Especially since that group supports global warming science. Maybe there’s more substance and independence in Tillerson than meets the eye. Maybe his vision goes beyond simple drilling gleaned from Exxon days. I’m happy, but let’s see this visionary approach to scientific method and organization expanded beyond one accord and Russian drilling in Arctic waters that motivates the SecState so much in recent years.

    Trump hired the globalists just like Preibus, Ryan and McConnell wanted but he better rein them in or tell Ivanka that her policies will no longer be considered.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      And drilling oil!

      1. CharlieSeattle says:

        And creating oil spills.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          This is a sham and just plan nasty, I guess this will give the climate change idiots something else to claim!

          1. CharlieSeattle says:

            …and idiot climate deniers something to ignore while they praise Russia and Communism.

      Russia dumps nuclear reactor waste and chemical waste in the Arctic.

    I hope you are correct, Fred. The continued belief that man is godlike that we can control nature has certainly been the biggest and most costliest scam of the past few centuries. While mankind’s activities certainly affect nature on a local and regional scale, not much differently than beavers turning forests into lakes and eventually into meadows, the melting of polar ice is completely in line with the natural changes of the Earth as the Earth continues it’s tens of thousands of years of exiting the last Ice Age (which we are still experiencing as long as there are polar ice sheets).
    Ironically, we should be celebrating the continued global warming and the Arctic ice decline as the Earth adds fresh water for the world and opens up Arctic sea travel for increased trade abilitities.

    like all physical pestilence, plague, and famine, climate change must be Commanded.

      the arctic once was as tropical as brazil and only 15,000. years ago the coast line in Charleston s. c. was 50 miles to the east . think about !! it’s a FACT

      1. Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

        that is not according, to The Scripture i read. 15,000 years ago, would be about the year 1693 two previous Torot cycles ago. when the william and mary college, was founded.

        1. JOHNNY REB says:

          torot cycles,THE SCRIPTURE,WILLIAM&MARY college in WILLIAMSBURG,VA. w.t.f.!!! explain,please,if able?

          1. Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

            The Torah, is a Seven Day Physical Theocracy. fail to mentally get it right, then you must physically repeat it until you do, or sent into oblivion.
            It is the exact same, Physical Story as previous occurrences thus far. from Day One with Noach, to Day Seven with The Male Child adam and his sister. this second physical, hereafter is no different than before. where Adam Christ, always returns as mr and mrs Christ.
            we shall never get, out of this physical Story of The Creation. making all the same mental mistakes, and expecting different physical results commanded by ELOHEEM or THEIR HaMosheeach Son.

          common core math?

          1. Jimmie Cooper Boswell says:

            nope! rotational trigonometry.

  • Fred says:

    At first it sounded like Tillerson’s brain had gone numb, possibly believing the “man made global warming” hoax. But after reading the article, it looks like he has to be part of this “Arctic Council” to be able to uncover the scam and reveal the truth. Let’s hope he is not turning into a zombie, following after fake news.

      Fear not, Rex Tillerson does not have cranium in rectum syndrome, the malady that so severely effected his two predecessors.

      All that is needed to be known about Tillerson is that he is NOT A BRAIN DEAD DEMOCRAT.
