Bonn update: Bypassing, fiddling, and jail

President Obama intends to sign a UN climate agreement without Congress.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius confirmed CFACT’s analysis.

“We must find a formula which is valuable for everybody and valuable for the U.S. without going to the Congress,” Fabius said, “we know the politics in the U.S. Whether we like it or not, if it comes to the Congress, they will refuse.”

CFACT is at the UN climate conference in Bonn where it is clear that the UN is working to craft a global warming agreement designed to help President Obama avoid the U.S. Constitution’s provision requiring Senate ratification of foreign treaties.UNFCCC plenary session Bonn 2015

France will chair the UN’s big climate summit in Paris in December which gives it extra power to shape the agenda and any agreement.

In advance of Paris “Team Warming” is pulling out all the stops.

As we’ve reported numerous times, there has been no meaningful temperature increase this century.  This is terribly inconvenient for the warming narrative.

Unable to find any temperature increase, what did the warmists do?  They “adjusted” past data to cool the past, warm the present and conjure up a trend that the raw data does not show.

Take a look at the graph below to see how the National Climate Data Center has been fiddling with temperature data.

Plus, they ignore the more reliable satellite data all together.  “Nothing to see here folks, move along.”

Climate pressure groups know how thin this kind of presentation runs.  This leaves them desperate to silence anyone ready to point out the flaws in their narrative and rebut it with hard data.

Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse actually proposed using the RICO statute to prosecute those of us who argue the other side of the climate debate as members of organized crime!

Is that what America needs, censorship and political prisoners?

Marc Morano has full details about this troubling RICO development as they break.  Be sure to check in at Climate Depot during the days ahead.

Between now and Paris, we’re in for a wild propaganda ride.

    If any agreement is not approved by Congress, then it should not be binding on the US.

    • Sam Pyeatte

      You are right, the only thing truly binding is a treaty and that requires a Senate approval of 2/3, or 67 votes. The President can sign all the goofy agreements he wants but they can evaporate as soon as he leaves office if the new President desires.

        US Constitution, Article 2, Section 2, paragraph 2:

        He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate,
        to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;

        A treaty by any other name is still a treaty, unlike what Obama says.

  • Canuck

    Really wish we could focus on real environmental issues:

    Overfishing
    Extinction
    Habitat encroachment
    real pollutants – i.e. toxins not C02
    Groundwater contamination

    etc.

    This catastrophic man-made warming is clearly nonsense if you look into it objectively, the fantasy that “97% of scientists” all agree we’re destroying the planet with C02 is just a big lie being pushed by activists and they are doing disservice to real science.

    • JetFuelJumper

      Here here!

      That’s almost the worst part….real problems being ignored in favor of a manufactured problem which sounds more dramatic. The real people who should be outraged are environmentalists. Bjorn Lomborg has it right.

      • Canuck

        It IS the worst part… I consider myself an environmentalist and conservationist. If we had our priorities straight we’d be rescuing the oceans from the very real, visible and imminent collapse of fishing stocks and we’d be pushing China, Vietnam etc. to stop their ridiculous and insane obsession with Rhino horn, Tiger bones etc. that have zero medicinal value… just baseless myth grounded in animism. It’s nauseating.

      The problem we face is it’s politically driven, not just a few crackpots!

    “Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse actually proposed using the
    RICO statute to prosecute those of us who argue the other side of the
    climate debate as members of organized crime!” There is something about being a Democrat that makes you insane. This idiot wants to prosecute people for disagreeing with his lies, and Obola, the Constitutional law professor, intends to sign an agreement without the approval of Congress.

    If there was every a man who needed a good, swift kick in the ass of being impeached, it is Obola. Now if only there was one Republican with the guts to say the truth!

    • capoprimo

      There are millions with that sort of guts, unfortunately none are in Congress!

  • capoprimo

    All Treaties must be approved by Congress or they’re not binding! It’s long overdue for Congress to take back its authority and start having a backbone.

  • Mervyn

    It just goes to show that it did not take that long, following tyrannical regimes of communism and nazism in Europe, for Europe to revert back to its old ways with its political elites openly promoting the circumvention of the democratic process. And how ironic that it was the USA that saved Europe from tyranny, yet now Europe wants to give the finger to the United States Congress … the home of democracy.

    To encourage an agreement without the involvement of Congress, is to engineer a by-passing of the democratic process. This, of course, would be a very dangerous precedent and the start of a new world order of tyranny.

    • Brin Jenkins

      We did just a little first old chap! Several years in fact with our cities flattened by bombs from Germany, but now I seriously wonder just why did we ever bother? Stalin won WW2 hands down.

      We have lost a great deal since, and the EU is Communism on the way towards the One World Government.

  • Frederick Colbourne

    Yes, but as I understand the Constitution, no agreement can bind the US without ratification by the Senate.

    What we are seeing is a deliberate attempt by the President to deceive the American public and the world about his own power under the law. I doubt it can be done.

    Rather, we are witnessing a further domestic power grab on the part of the Federal executive branch, by the EPA and the Bureau of Land Management and the Army Corps of Engineers.

    And I ask myself, in the 21st century why the hell is the Army still meddling in domestic construction programs and projects?

  • far2right

    Even if Zerobama signs on, it will go nowhere under our system of government. And frenchy knows this (or is truly an idiot).

    What Zero is hoping to accomplish is yet another in a long line of Alinsky-esk moves to vilify the GOP led senate as a gathering of flat-earther knuckledraggers who deny “climate change” (whatever that is).

    CFACT and Climate Depot needs to gird up their loins and be wise to this.

  • bob ashworth

    All gases and dust in our atmosphere cools us; we have one atmosphere and get our energy from the sun, not from the earth. The radiant energy from the earth to the atmosphere is less than 1/2 of the energy from the sun. The overall effect is cooling, not warming.

  • Duke Silver

    yes, of course…..why should the people have a vote? They’re only here to foot the bill, darling.

  • socalpa

    Don’t worry.. Putin will order the EU disbanded and any Climate Pact or treaty thus Null and Void.

    Nonsense anyway . China at 29% of global emissions exceed U.S (15%) by nearly100% . In fact ..Chinas emissions exceed U.S AND EU (10%)

    Quite simply, the math shows U.S and EU could go to ZERO emissions with ZERO climate Effect,(assuming there even is one)

    Putin has a lot of oil and gas to sell. China encourages for two reasons.

    1. Absorb the last of U.S. and EU Industrial capacity .

    2. Help the Western Governments enact Carbon Taxes so they will have the Revenue to keep paying Chinas bonds.
