UN pushes for “indelible” global warming pact in Peru

Yesterday CFACT attended the opening ceremonies of COP 20, the United Nations international climate summit in Peru.

President Obama’s recent emissions deal with ChDicaprio Goreina has the climate crowd salivating. Obama is on board. The U.S. is bragging that it brought the largest delegation to the summit and we’re told that they’ll be rolling out the big guns – Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio are on the way.

Differences between developed nations and those with emerging economies such as the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China) were a major factor in scuttling the last big push for a climate pact at COP 15 in Copenhagen and has been the principle sticking point ever since.

The BRICs want to develop as quickly as they can and realize that fossil fuels are the only way to do so. If CO2 is your bag, this is where the real increase in future CO2 emissions will come from.

President Obama apparently bridged this impasse with a very simple technique, unilateral surrender. The Obama administration is waging war on American energy right now. Coal plants are shutting down and energy prices are heading way up.  We expect the President to sign a climate agreement that avoids the word “treaty” and to try to use this as an excuse to bypass ratification by the Senate.

China and India are increasing their emissions as fast as they possibly can. James Inhofe, the past and apparent future Chairman of the Senate Environment Committee reports that China commissions a new coal-fired power plant every ten days. China gave Obama nothing but a vague promise to reach peak emissions by 2030, the date economists predict they would peak no matter what. No one really expects China to switch over to inefficient wind and solar come 2030. Even the Onion acknowledged that they’ll never submit to meaningful verification and quickly ran a satire entitled, “China vows to begin aggressively falsifying air pollution numbers.

Word at COP 20 is that India is strongly considering adopting China’s path. Narendra Modi, India’s new Prime Minister, in part came to power by promising to invigorate the rest of the Indian economy the way he did the province the governed. What was the secret to his success? Electricity from coal. India may also be willing to promise to worry about its emissions 16 years from now in exchange for America and its allies throttling their energy supplies now.

In her opening remarks UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres called for the Peru talks to blaze a path towards an “indelible” climate pact and set four goals:

  1. Create a draft of a “universal climate change agreement” to serve as the basis for a final text at the UN talks in Paris in 2015.
  2. Spend more money on “adaptation to achieve political parity with mitigation,” which translated from UN speak means roughly send billions to developing nations for infrastructure projects instead of just windmills and solar panels in the west.
  3. “Enhance delivery of finance, in particular to the most vulnerable.” Which means plow billions into the “Green Climate Fund” and get the redistribution party really started.
  4. Scale up everything and speed up the process. Which in part means get this climate pact written and signed before Obama leaves office, or your may never get it.

The United States has stayed on the sidelines and refused to sign a climate agreement for years. With both his foreign and domestic policies in tatters, Obama, joined by Kerry and Gore, see giving in and signing onto a global warming agreement as their last shot at a legacy.

We can’t think of a bigger waste or more dangerous trap.

There’s much more to report. CFACT is your eyes, ears and voice at the UN climate talks in Peru.

We’ll shake things up and keep you posted.

      Climate change is not a fraud. Man made climate change is!

      • Kent2012

        whoa now, the african pretender and the fat fraud from Tennessee would disagree….I suppose the idiot from crapafornia would to…

    • Joachim vzM

      Correction: Anthropogenic Climate Change is a total fraud. Saying that the climate changes isn’t the same as saying as man causes it.

  • Arationofreason

    Good place to keep the fools occupied on useless ‘agreements’. At least his not back here where he might do more real damage.

    Eye opening talk by a man who has spent a lifetime in GE power division. It is impossible even if the whole Eastern/Western world wanted to make large reductions in CO2.

      CO2 is much like the capitalist economic model and the American economy..they are the targets of the communist scum and that includes that communist scum from africa that the parasites, seiu clowns, and the coffee shop pseudo intellectual philosophers elected to pretend to be a leader. The parasites can be forgiven because they know not what they have done…the members of the other two groups are frauds….they pretend to love America…I am praying for a coup da tat while the fat pig from Tennessee and the twit from hollowwood are visiting….may we read of their “disappearance”….as well as all the other fools at the conference…it is time for the adults to take back the reins….

  • James Andrews

    They can kiss my ass….

  • al_kidya

    The concept of man-made global warming is nothing more than a communist scam to rob tax dollars from the western countries and enrich the third world while the third world sits on their ass.

    • Kent2012

      they are waiting like the visitor parasites in Ferguson for some “fire sale” bargains when America falls…home they cruise in looking to personally pick the best….we will be there waiting….I kidya not….

  • ninetyninepct

    They could at least have pretended to begin to try to set an example by teleconferencing. You can be absolutely guaranteed that duh crapio’s expenses and travel costs are fully covered while he jets around the world in a private jat, paid for by you and I through the UN. Even though he is ugly filthy stinking rich, he is likely paid a lot of our money.

    WE hear that even though gore has scammed multi-millions lying through his teeth about the climate and how the oceans are flooding the entire earth, he has recently bought yet another mansion tight on the Florida coast. Guess he isn’t afraid of drowning just yet. A lying two faced prk in my opinion. Must be related to alla akbar oblama.

    • Kent2012

      and God said that the “meek shall inherit the earth”, not sure what he may have thought or said concerning pompous fools….it may have been something along the lines of “and they will accompany beelzebub on his journey to the nether regions”……day after tomorrow would be perfect….

    This link explains all the crooks in the network. The Chicago Climate Exchange was partly founded by Obama and Gore. If cap and trade came to be, they would make zillions as shareholders in the exchange. And more zillions with investments in green energy companies being financed by the tax payer.
    How come there is no media coverage about the old CCX?

      Flash287. The media is on board with the SCAM.

  • PriklyPete

    Climate change, BO, Gore, and a majority of hollyweird are all frauds, this will continue until we bring them down to earth, make them accountable, and/or permanently remove them from their endeavors.

  • ron17571

    Its all part of agenda 21. Using climate fears to control people. And new taxs are never far behind. CC the biggest scam in history.

  • Gail Combs

    IMPORTANT NEWS!

    Obama is going to switch names from TREATY requiring 3/4 of Congress to agree to AGREEMENT which only takes a simple majority. And Obama has that majority.

    Seems we let this little fact get by us folks.

    Obama Pursuing Climate Accord in Lieu of Treaty

    By Coral Davenport
    nytimes.com — WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress.

  • John Burks

    climate change is another lie used by the liberals to grab more control.

  • Florio Vino

    Climate does CHANGE from Day to Day, Week to ,Etc`! It always has and always will BE and there`s no way We can do anything about it. Our CREATORS, WHOEVER THEY MAYBE OR IF THERE WERE ANY OTHER THAN NATURE. THIS FALLACY IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF THESE IDIOTS, MAKING THEIR VOICES HEARD AND ATTEMPTING TO GAIN SOME CREDENCE AND NOTORIETY FOR THEIR FALLACIES. iT`S SIMPLE, THEY DON`T LIKE TO WORK, BUT THEY WANT TO HEARD.!

    World governance by the UN, what could go wrong?

  • Anakin S

    Fossil fuels have pulled more people out of poverty than all the politicians the UN can muster – oh I forgot the UN isn’t about people, it is about aristocrats. Fossil fuels are at the heart of the “economic miracle” that is China.

    Thank you guys for ALL you do!!!

    Big guns – Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio?

    Not Dr John Christy? Not Professor Don Easterbrook? Not Professor Richard Lindzen? Not Dr Roy Spencer?

    It says it all about this talk-fest, doesn’t it!

  • Robert

    What the hell is the matter with these morons, they are wasting taxpayers money because there’s not a thing they can do for climate change, climate is not changing, seasons are changing, anyway they don’t care anyway, they just like to feel important to the people to make the people think their doing something.

    Climate is controlled and influenced by forces much more powerful and persistant than humans.
