Paris Climate Accord fails to work as advertised

Paris Climate Accord fails to work as advertised

Over 26 years of international climate agreement failure continue.

The numbers for carbon emissions are in for nations across the globe and prove irrefutably that…President Trump was right for withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.

Two years after the historic agreement was signed, global emissions of carbon dioxide are rising again after several years of remaining flat.

In short, the world is off target.

“It’s not fast enough. It’s not big enough,” said Corinne Le Quéré, director of the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research in England. “There’s not enough action.”

Even as renewable energy grows cheaper and automakers churn out battery-powered and more efficient cars, many nations around the world are nonetheless struggling to hit the relatively modest goals set in Paris.

The reasons vary. Brazil has struggled to rein in deforestation, which fuels greenhouse gas emissions. In Turkey, Indonesia and other countries with growing economies, new coal plants are being planned to meet the demand for electricity….

But when policymakers from around the world gather at a key U.N. climate meeting in Poland later this year, countries will be forced to reckon with the difference between how much they say they want to limit the warming of the planet and how little they actually are doing to make that happen.

However, a review of the actual results from previous international climate agreements demonstrates that they are not worth the paper, which is made of the cut trees from the forests of Brazil, upon which they are written.

The 1992 U.N. treaty [Framework Convention on Climate Change] called for “stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.”

However, from 1992 to 2017 global annual emissions rose from about 22 to 36.8 gigatons per year — a more than 67 percent increase. That’s despite additional U.N. climate treaties and domestic policies to reduce emissions.

However, that is not stopping New Jersey following from committing to the Paris Accord as part of a #Resist Climate Coalition.

Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday signed a bill joining a coalition of states committed to cutting emissions of carbon dioxide to fulfill the United States’ pledge under the Paris international climate change agreement.

Murphy’s action requires New Jersey to join the U.S. Climate Alliance, a coalition of 15 other states and Puerto Rico vowing to uphold the Paris Agreement. Both chambers of the state legislature passed a bill to put New Jersey in the alliance.

I sense that the citizens of 35 other states are grateful that their legislators have more localized priorities.

Dear heavens would SOMEBODY please take a class or two in CHEMISTRY?? Greenhouse gases are not “emitted” – they simply ARE. They are what makes our planet habitable and they exist as part of a constantly changing balance.

CO2 is as necessary to life on earth as O2 is. It is a simple equilibrium. Animals (everything from bacteria to mankind) utilize oxygen for respiration. The waste factor for animal respiration is CO2. No oxygen, you suffocate.

Plant life (everything from algae to the forest of Brazil) utilize CO2 for respiration (photosynthesis.) They produce the oxygen that animals require as the waste product of respiration.

So, when you deforest the jungles of Brazil, you obliterate a good chunk of the CO2 using species on the planet —–> more CO2 in the atmosphere.

    Pusshhhhaa, if everyone thought like that then the greens wouldn’t have a blank check to socialize the world.

    Some biologists and planetary scientists say that the amount of CO2 now in the atmosphere is nearly the minimum to sustain plant life. There is a critical level of CO2 below which plant life (at least on land) will crash, and bring down the rest of the biosphere with it.

      Founder of Sierra Club notes optimal CO2 for plants is 1600 ppm and we are at 400 ppm. We are starving the plants… oh, the horror!

A government accord fails to work as advertised?

“This is my shocked face” — Captain Kirk

Serious question: is there a government program that works as advertised? I truly can’t think of one.

Gee, but I wonder how many people have gotten filthy rich off this nonsense. I wonder who they are and how they’re related to the pols that keep pushing this crap.

RE: “Paris Climate Accord fails to work as advertised”

WELL DUH!!!!!!

Considering the whole “Climate Change” operation is one BIG CON JOB.

    Considering that the entire reason for the Paris Accord was to channel trillions of US Taxpayer dollars to wealthy foreign liberals, it is a *good* thing that it failed. One might even say the failure of this scam shows a light at the end of the tunnel that is not a train for a change.

Looks like New Jersey may have to be cut out of the electric power grid. Well, the Eastern Interconection, since there isn’t really a “national” grid. If NJ can’t contribute because it doesn’t have coal generating plants, there’s little incentive for other states to prop it up.

Supplying power is hard. It’s even harder when you’re stupid.

The carbon tax is the revue system chosen to fund the globalist new world order. They must get the carbon tax system in place in order to finance their one world government. That’s why they are pushing so hard.

The easiest and best way to lower CO2 is for all liberals to stop breathing.

If, as a liberal, you really care about the environment and Mother Earth, go find a tree you like, sit next to it, stop breathing and turn yourself into fertilizer.

Ohmmmm, Ohmmmm, Ohmmmmm.

Yoga mats are optional.

The entire treaty was designed to cripple America and force it into being a European like State by those oblivious to the threats posed by Islam, Russia and China. Only America was to mind the terms of the treaty.

All this Global Warming if you plot it on a graph with the vertical y-axis incremented in whole degrees you could free hand a straight line starting from the end of the Little Ice Age all the way to the current day and see there has been no dramatic global average temperature change since the turn of the 19th century.

You can also see when measured in context, sea level rise has slowed down rapidly beginning 8000 years ago and has been near constant for the last 6000 years.

Catastrophic Global Warming only exists in Computer Models and in the minds and propaganda of the politicians, rent seekers and activists.

“A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the greenhouse effect.”
-Richard Benedik United Nations

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy…Basically it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization…One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”
-Ottmar Edenhoffer United Nations

To paraphrase the great Glenn Reynolds: “Something that can’t work, won’t”.

But Trump might shift gears when the politics behind it change and has suggested to foreign counterparts that he would be open to keeping the U.S. in the agreement under the right terms, a former White House aide told TIME this week.

“The president talks about it when he’s in meetings with foreign leaders overseas,” says George David Banks, a former White House energy and environment adviser. “It’s not scripted. He’s not using talking points prepared by staff. He says it because it’s what he believes. He’s interested because he likes the idea of working out a better deal.”

We can only hope NOT…

What do you mean, fails to work? When it was signed, we were assured by 97% of scientists that the world was about to end, weren’t we? Well, it hasn’t, so the Accord must have worked.

None of the nations in the Paris agreement have come close to meeting their goals. Nations dropped out after the US not because they agreed with President Trump but because they were not going to get money from the US.
