Reveals radical global warming treaty push, efforts to “bypass” and spin media
Guardian environment editor John Vidal obtained a confidential U.S. climate strategy document from a “hotel computer” at the Bonn climate talks. Vidal did not reveal to CFACT’s “Mission Bonn” team what was afoot, but came to the CFACT display obviously quite excited and pumped our American members for information on the format used in the U.S. to display dates. It appears he was seeking background for his evaluation of this strategy document.
CFACT readers will remember Mr. Vidal as the fellow who interrupted our Climate Sense conference in Copenhagen and launched into a long point about sea level rise which was immediately rebutted by leading expert Nils Axel-Morner. Here’s the exchange on video.
The document reveals a U.S. administration determined to push a radical global warming agenda that intends a binding global warming treaty, doubts its political ability to ratify a treaty in the U.S., intends to lock the U.S. into its climate policy with or without a treaty and as always cares most about perception. Placating radical NGOs is high on the list.
Here is the text of the leaked U.S. strategy according to Mr. Vidal. You can evaluate it for yourself:
