Global Warning: Paris Climate Change Accord is a bureaucratic boondoggle

Global Warning: Paris Climate Change Accord is a bureaucratic boondoggle

Money for nothing.

The UN Climate Change conference is wrapped up yesterday.

After two weeks of world leaders opining mindlessly, protesters heckling speakers, and participants enjoying lavish French cuisine, bureaucrats agreed to squander billions of dollars to solve a non-existent problem.

In a landmark move, 195 nations agreed Saturday evening to adopt an historic pact to halt global warming that for the first time asks all countries to reduce or rein in their greenhouse gas emissions.

…In the “Paris agreement,” countries commit to keeping average global temperatures from rising another degree Celsius (1.8 Fahrenheit) between now and 2100, a key demand of poor countries ravaged by rising sea levels and other effects of climate change.

They are also committed to limiting the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100.

Yet, this landmark pact has no mechanism to punish countries that don’t or can’t contribute toward that goal.

The smart set who crafted this accord seem to have used same template as the catastrophic Iranian Nuclear Deal.

As an added bonus, there is a one-year “opt out” clause for participants. Climate expert Anthony Watts actually read the deal, and has located a key passage:

1. At any time after three years from the date on which this Agreement has entered into force for a Party, that Party may withdraw from this Agreement by giving written notification to the Depositary.

2. Any such withdrawal shall take effect upon expiry of one year from the date of receipt by the Depositary of the notification of withdrawal, or on such later date as may be specified in the notification of withdrawal.

3. Any Party that withdraws from the Convention shall be considered as also having withdrawn from this Agreement.

The chance of 0% participation at the end of the year? 105%!

The accord is so preposterous that even the “godfather of climate science”, former NASA scientist James Hansen is ripping the deal apart before the ink is dry:

“It’s a fraud really, a fake,” he says, rubbing his head. “It’s just bullshit for them to say: ‘We’ll have a 2C warming target and then try to do a little better every five years.’ It’s just worthless words. There is no action, just promises. As long as fossil fuels appear to be the cheapest fuels out there, they will be continued to be burned.”

…[A]ccording to Hansen, the international jamboree is pointless unless greenhouse gas emissions aren’t taxed across the board. He argues that only this will force down emissions quickly enough to avoid the worst ravages of climate change.

But that would get in the way of the real purpose of the pact: Wealth redistribution.

However, other UN officials have entirely different set of concerns. The United Nations building in Geneva was shut-down over a potential threat:

Heavily armed guards watched over the United Nations building in Geneva and a security scare briefly shut down the international airport Friday, signs of heightened security amid a terror alert and a hunt for suspects.

The alert level remained unchanged, Swiss authorities said, but various events planned over the weekend will go on.

The U.S. Embassy warned Americans to “maintain a high level of vigilance.”

The Swiss alert came after a tip from U.S. intelligence officials, who told their Swiss counterparts that they had intercepted communications among extremists discussing the idea of attacking Geneva, as well as Chicago and Toronto, a source close to the investigation told CNN.

Closer to home, our law enforcement agencies has been searching for two Afghan nationals who were training at a Georgia Air Force and were reported missing last week:

Several federal law enforcement agencies are searching for Mirwais Kohistani and Shirzad Rohullah, unnamed Air Force officials told Channel 2 Action News. The officials said the two men were a part of a 23-man group learning to fly and maintain an A-29 fighter plane at Moody Air Force Base outside Valdosta.

Americans would rest a lot easier if our bureaucrats were more worried about the national security climate.

However, it would take a true Christmas miracle for the Obama Administration to readjust their policy priorities.

This is the Collective’s ultimate dream cause.

It CAN’T be fixed, because its a myth. But it’s a global threat, if you buy into it, and something…anything…HAS to be done. It demands that people like these in Paris simply MUST meet to make “change”. And the change they make will always leave people everywhere more poor and less free.

Being a myth, it’s infinitely capable of being manipulated and lied about, so it’s just what Orwell would have ordered! An actual religion of the state, based on nothing, and sold all over the planet.

Wow! This is this is much bigger than the last scam!

Bernie Madoff with other people’s money (est. at $18B actual). Madoff also used a redistribution justification.

Jennifer, I must disagree that “billions of dollars have been squandered “to solve a non-existent problem.”

The “problem” for the Ruling Class is the freedom and standard of living of the great majority of American citizens. This Global Warming/Climate Change Accord is simply the mechanism by which the Masters have the best chance to make Serfs out of the Producing Class in the United States.

This is all being done by the elites who see themselves as the virtuous oligarchy managing the resources for the lower masses.

New World Order.
And Zero’s supposed final year in the WH will be a doozie.

Dr Roy Spencer has posted a fascinating article written by a co-founder of Greenpeace:”Greenpeace Founder Reports It to the FBI Under RICO and Wire-Fraud Statutes.”

To say they extract the loot from the taxpayers hide is not as true as it once was. Given ongoing $500 billion, too $1 trillion plus deficits as far as the eye can see, instantly created digital money, & all the other financial sleight of hand the moneychangers now pull off ; these international magicians just wave their philosopher’s stone of transmutation & viola! words become wealth!

    Mostly true, but as they “print” money, the responsible people that saved have their “money” devalued. That’s a hidden tax that even the money under the mattress doesn’t escape. And they can inflate away some debt, but there is still plenty that “the children” owe. In time interest rates must rise, and just servicing the debt will be a huge tax. There is no magic “money” machine, it is really just a transfer of wealth.

    And it could be called a “tax” of sorts, when so much money is granted to the “commies”, who then implant damaging leftist policy, and buy future elections. That tax is paid in the form of lost (confiscated) liberties.

    There are many “taxing” distortions ongoing, damaging traditional America due to the pay to play schemes of the Clinton Machine, and other leftist redistributions. “Climate Change” just happens to be one of the grandest.

I bet the US funding for this initiative is included in
the bulk funding bill wending its way through Congress.

The RINO Republican Congressional leadership will, of course, express shock and anger at its inclusion – after the bill is passed
into law.

    Good thing we elected Republicans, amirite? Mitch and Paul will get right on killing this in…5…4……

    crickets*

    Milhouse in reply to davod. | December 13, 2015 at 3:45 pm

    Since the bill already exists and is in the process, and this funding has only now been agreed on, it can’t already be in the bill! So you lose your bet.

    Democrats may try to add it to the bill, but that will be resisted by the Republicans.

      clintack in reply to Milhouse. | December 13, 2015 at 5:33 pm

      True.

      The real question is what will happen when President Obama directs the Treasury to just send the money anyway.

        Milhouse in reply to clintack. | December 14, 2015 at 1:23 am

        He can’t and won’t do that. Any money he sends will have been appropriated for something similar enough to be stretched to cover this, which means it will be at the expense of that other things, whatever it is.

Now that klimaphobia has been taken care of and the terrorist severely rebuked, what is next on the elite list of things to do? Yellowstone caldera? Continental drift?
I don’t want these leaders to get bored. They might do something stupid.

Societies in decline, as in the entire West, find diversions to substitute for debating and addressing real problems. In the old days wars would be started as kings sought to distract the population from domestic problems. Now it is the nonexistent issues of the imagination of those invested in the scam of global warming. Filled with delusions of controlling the climate by sacrificing economic progress — especially by those in poor countries — they puff themselves up with moralizing nonsense without any basis in science.

Meanwhile real problems such as lack of economic progress in the Western economies, immigration, and terrorism draw only bland empty blather with no action.

Enjoy the ride. It goes nowhere.

Fun with…and deception by…charts.

Amazing what you can get by stupid people…or the government educated. There’s a Venn diagram somewhere that has a sizable overlap…

Sorry, Watts’s “great discovery” is a big nothing. Not only does pretty much every long-term treaty has some such withdrawal mechanism, but even those that don’t have one in their text have one anyway — the inherent power of every sovereign nation to abrogate treaties at will. The USA has certainly asserted this power since its independence, and therefore must recognise the same power in other nations. So yes, any nation can leave this treaty at any time; it couldn’t possibly be otherwise. What else did you or Watts expect?
