With the elections over, the Obama administration is going “all in” on climate.
On election day the President suffered a major vote of no confidence in his policies. What better way to seek cover, than a pivot to the heavily propagandized, hard to verify, holier-than-thou world of climate politics?
In effect, the U.S. agreed to reduce CO2 emissions now, while China can go on expanding until 2030. As Senator Inhofe pointed out, China is currently opening a new coal plant every ten days. Does anyone really think that expanding the Chinese economy, while contracting the U.S. economy will have a meaningful impact on world temperature?
Ironically, this agreement comes at a time when Antarctic ice is at record levels, polar bears are increasing in numbers, and global temperatures haven’t risen in 18+ years. The climate computer models on which the entire global warming scare depends on have yet to be right.
China is playing Obama for the fool. It will do what is best to obtain competitive advantage for China, and is only too delighted to watch the free world raise its costs of production. The main effect of deals such as this is to shift manufacturing overseas to countries like China and India who will gladly produce for us, and emit CO2 for us.
Australians saw through this folly and repealed their carbon tax.
What will it take to wake up the rest of the world?
For nature and people too,
