Another pair of moronic journalists heckles State Dept. on climate change
In the State Department press briefing last Thursday. Ms Nauert calls on "Felicia" for her next question and then she asks about the Paris Climate Agreement. Her actual question is not at all thought out clearly, we assume she has been taking lessons from Senator John McCain.
"Felicia" we are sure has not even read the Paris Climate Agreement, and probably does not understand that California's Jerry Brown already has the state in a multi-billion dollar budget deficit. What exactly is "Felicia" trying to say here? Could it be California will take the place of the US on its own and inject billions into the Paris Agreement "slush fund", it it has been called?
After that we get an idiot from an obviously useless news outlet, ask if France trying to recruit US Climate Scientists is a hostile activity. We cannot decide if the drivel narratives these journalists attempt to maintain is comedy or parody.
- QUESTION: Hi, thanks. So Jerry Brown met with Xi Jinping about efforts to implement the Paris climate agreement. You had --
- MS NAUERT: Jerry Brown from California?
- QUESTION: Yes, Governor Jerry Brown.
- MS NAUERT: Okay.
- QUESTION: He was in China to meet with Xi Jinping about the Paris climate agreement. You had Dave Rank resign from the embassy over the President’s Paris decision. There seems to be some sort of – there seem to be efforts to kind of go around the Trump administration’s stance on the Paris agreement.
- MS NAUERT: Well, Jerry Brown is not a part of the Trump administration.
- QUESTION: No, that’s exactly what I’m saying.
- MS NAUERT: I would just leave it at that.
- QUESTION: Well, do you have any reaction or comment to these efforts to --
- MS NAUERT: This is the first time – this is the first I’m hearing about it. I’ll refer you to the governor’s office for that.
- QUESTION: Sticking with the Paris accord --
- MS NAUERT: Yeah.
- QUESTION: -- the French Government has launched a website to attract scientists to move to France from the U.S. And they’re explicitly linking this to the decision to leave the Paris accord. Does this seem like a hostile act, to try and drain your scientists away?
- MS NAUERT: Trying to recruit our scientists away to France? Would that be a hostile act? I don’t think that would be a hostile act. We like our tax dollars here. We prefer that they keep their tax dollars here. I’ll just leave it at that.
- QUESTION: Okay.
