Warmists the world over are super thrilled by this
(AP) The Paris Agreement to combat climate change became international law on Friday — a landmark deal about tackling global warming amid growing fears that the world is becoming hotter even faster than scientists expected.
So far, 96 countries, accounting for just over two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, have formally joined the accord, which seeks to limit global warming to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. More countries are expected to come aboard in the coming weeks and months.
Secretary General Ban Ki Moon commemorated the event, talking with civil society groups at U.N. headquarters in New York to hear their concerns and visions for the future.
“Today we make history in humankind’s efforts to combat climate change,” Ban said in his opening remarks.
I thought they made history with Kyoto? How’d that work out? Interestingly, most of the people celebrating this refuse to modify their own lives to conform with their ‘climate change’ beliefs. More interestingly, all the people who were responsible for signing the Paris agreement take lots and lots of fossil fueled trips, and will use the agreement to institute more government and taxes and fees and restrictions on citizens.
But scientists and policymakers say the agreement is just the first step of a much longer and complicated process of transitioning away from fossil fuels, which currently supply the bulk of the planet’s energy needs and also are the primary drivers of global warming.
Now that they have a chunk, they want more. Because Progressives (nice Fascists) always want more control.
Sadly, Trump probably blew his chance to blow this plan out with a poor campaign, however, the GOP Congress could put the brakes on this with forceful blocking of funds and slipping legislation in. Will they have the cajones to do that? Because it isn’t law here in the U.S., since the Congress never ratified the agreement.
