Pelosi Will Pointlessly Attend Climate Conference in Madrid

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and a large delegation of congressional Democrats will leave a massive, taxpayer-funded carbon footprint Sunday on their way to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change conference in Madrid, where they will virtue-signal their commitment to what she calls “the existential threat of our time.”

Ignoring the work she should be doing for American citizens, including passing an updated North American trade deal, Pelosi and her cohorts will join almost 25,000 attendees calling for the implementation of taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations struggling with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures.”

As Breitbart News points out, this is all pointless, as Pelosi is prevented by law from conducting foreign policy or making any agreements with foreign leaders.

By contrast, President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord because he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”
