World Leaders Just Agreed To A “Historic” Climate Accord… Which Is Non-Binding And Has No Enforcement Language
Great news! The “greatest threat to future generations of the world” has apparently been solved. World leaders Saturday adopted an historic international climate accord in Paris, the first-ever agreement to commit almost every country to fight climate change. However, as we knew all along and just got confirmation, the 31-page pact does not have binding language or a mechanism to force countries to live up to the promises to cut greenhouse gases emissions or provide money for developing and poor nations to cope with the effects of global warming.
Basically, COP21 was a massive taxpayer-funded boondoggle, in which “leaders” enjoyed all the perks of Paris for two weeks, burned through hundreds of millions in public funding, and created millions of tons in greenhouse gases (what do you think to private jets and government 747s use to fly?) that has achieved absolutely nothing.
In other words…
Nonetheless, leaders and the environmental community hailed the United Nations agreement has a historic turning point that has the potential to stave off the worst expected effects of global warming.
And The UN reports a large round of mutual masturbation…
The Borg press is happy, clearly having no idea that absolutely nothing just took place:
Journo says she’s watching #ParisAgreement with press (https://twitter.com/MSLJeconomist/status/675732689102741504 …), tweets video of their reaction.
