Trump casts HUGE shadow over UN climate summit

 These responses by participants of the UN meeting in Morocco make it abundantly clear that America has strong enemies that don’t fear us. And the friends she once earned do not know if they can trust us anymore. It is time to show the world that we will cling to science, not politics, against dangers both foreign and domestic.

Besides, Trump can’t fix it. The “fix” that is needed is a victory in the Culture War. It will take blood in the streets. — jtl, 419

Planned Grazing: A Study Guide and Reference Manual Donald Trump’s victory is making quite a splash at the big UN climate change conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

In response to Trump’s election, European Union representatives proclaimed that they would not wait for the U.S. to catch up, which begs the question of what we would want to catch up to. Our economy is stronger and our standard of living is higher than most in the EU, so why would Americans prefer the EU’s radical environmental agenda? The EU should ask themselves why citizens in the U.K. voted for Brexit.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewCould it be that the Brits learned about the EU, what Americans have also learned about bureaucratic overreach by the Environmental Protection Agency, the Bureau of Land Management, etc.?

Limited Government) (Volume 1)  The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)  including grants, development finance and export credits. And during the Marrakech meeting, it committed another $125 million to El Salvador and India, as well as $36 million to sub-Saharan Africa. As the UN in Marrakech focuses on “adaptation,” its true agenda is for American taxpayers to fund infrastructure in foreign countries, even as American roads, bridges and airports need repairs.

The radical group “Climate Action Network” proclaimed in response to Trump’s election that “no one person, no one government can stop what we’re doing.” “Politics cannot change the people’s movement for economic justice,” a.k.a. the failed Marxist promise for equality. Trump’s campaign promise to Make America Great Again, is the antithesis of Marxist ideals.

Young people from various countries traveled to Marrakech to react vociferously to Trump’s election. A student from New York with “Sustain U.S.” called Trump’s election a “disaster,” stating that “power from below must push for social and environmental justice.”

Another student from New Zealand expressed “panic” over Trump’s win and said he couldn’t fathom building the Keystone Pipeline or eliminating Obama’s radical “Clean Power Plan” that aims to destroy the last vestiges of America’s coal industry.

A Chinese Emery University student, working with the Chinese government at the Marrakech meeting, suggested that time will tell the impact of Trump’s election. She further suggested that state policies could replace Obama’s federal activism and held up California as a positive example. The state has embraced Obama’s plan to produce cars with fuel economy standards of 50.8 miles per gallon by 2025, but only time will tell whether Americans will sacrifice their families’ safety for federal standards.

A student from the Marshall Islands said the U.S. elections were “depressing” and that Trump was “terrifying” because he “mocks our struggle for survival.”  He stood under a banner stating, “Embrace Ambition, NOT Emissions” claiming that we owe it to his future children to implement strong “climate action,” adding that he deserved “more than just to survive.” He also said that the Marshall Islands could decide to remove the U.S. military base on its island, which begs the question whether it could defend itself without U.S. military might.

Another student from the Philippines called Trump a “climate denier” while lauding “climate justice,” adding that “the U.S. needs to act with us and for us.”

These responses by participants of the UN meeting in Morocco make it abundantly clear that America has strong enemies that don’t fear us. And the friends she once earned do not know if they can trust us anymore. It is time to show the world that we will cling to science, not politics, against dangers both foreign and domestic.

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View

BookCoverImageMurray N. Rothbard was the father of what some call Radical Libertarianism or Anarcho-Capitalism which Hans-Hermann Hoppe described as “Rothbard’s unique contribution to the rediscovery of property and property rights as the common foundation of both economics and political philosophy, and the systematic reconstruction and conceptual integration of modern, marginalist economics and natural-law political philosophy into a unified moral science: libertarianism.”

This book applies the principles of this “unified moral science” to environmental and natural resource management issues.

The book started out life as an assigned reading list for a university level course entitled Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian View.

As I began to prepare to teach the course, I quickly saw that there was a plethora of textbooks suitable for universal level courses dealing with environmental and natural resource economics. The only problem was that they were all based in mainstream neo-classical (or Keynesian) theory. I could find no single collection of material comprising a comprehensive treatment of environmental and natural resource economics based on Austrian Economic Theory.

However, I was able to find a large number of essays, monographs, papers delivered at professional meetings and published from a multitude of sources. This book is the result. It is composed of a collection of research reports and essays by reputable scientists, economists, and legal experts as well as private property and free market activists.

The book is organized into seven parts: I. Environmentalism: The New State Religion; II. The New State Religion Debunked; III. Introduction to Environmental and Natural Resource Economics; IV. Interventionism: Law and Regulation; V. Pollution and Recycling; VI. Property Rights: Planning, Zoning and Eminent Domain; and VII. Free Market Conservation. It also includes an elaborate Bibliography, References and Recommended Reading section including an extensive Annotated Bibliography of related and works on the subject.

The intellectual level of the individual works ranges from quite scholarly to informed editorial opinion.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
