In an editorial piece
published in the Investor's
Business Daily, on Saturday 11, February 2017, we are told about
United Nations climate report that
environmentalists undoubtedly don't want anybody to read.
It states in plain
"that even if every
country abides by the grand promises they made last year in
Paris to reduce greenhouse gases, the planet would still be
Obama hitched America to the
Paris Accords in 2016, he declared that it ,
that we finally decided to 'save' our planet."
out of the deal this year, he was berated by legions of
environmentalists for killing it.
But it turns out that the Paris Accord was little more than a
sham that will do nothing to "save the planet."
According to the latest annual UN report on the "emissions gap," the
Paris Agreement will provide
only a third of the cuts in greenhouse gas that environmentalists
claim is needed to prevent catastrophic warming.
If every country involved
in those accords abides by their pledges between now and 2030 -
which is a dubious proposition - temperatures will still rise by 3º
Celsius by 2100.
The goal of the Paris
Agreement was to keep the global temperature increase to under
The measures submitted included:
energy's share to 30%. Pushing electric cars to 15% of new car
sales, up from less than 1% today. Doubling mass transit use.
Cutting air travel CO2
emissions by 20%. And coming up with $1 trillion for 'climate
Central to the report,
"phasing out coal
consumption… is an indispensable condition for achieving
international climate change targets."
That means halting all
new coal plants shutting down those currently in use.
Which is quite a big ask, as there are currently 273 gigawatts of
coal capacity under construction around the world, and another 570
gigawatts in the pipeline, according to the UN.
That's a 42% increase in
global energy production from coal. Which doesn't consider the 22
coal-fired power stations to be built at 17 locations in Japan to
replace their aging nuclear plants.
These new installations
will on their own produce more carbon dioxide annually than all the
passenger cars sold in the United States each year.
So, with all the hype in the media about "climate change" and with
NOAA admitting to data manipulation, as well as
acknowledging that the
climate has been cooling for the past
when is the UN going
to shut-up shop and call an end to this panhandling charade...?
