CFACT sends delegation to COP18,
the UN Climate Summit in Qatar
Will a reelected President Obama move the United States towards a new UN climate treaty by 2015?
Both President Obama and Governor Romney avoided climate change whenever possible throughout the 2012 campaign. Yet on election night Obama declared, “we want our children to live in an America … that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet.” President Obama’s renewed interest (now that he no longer must face the voters), set the stage for COP 18, the UN climate summit , taking place from November 26th to December 30th.
Climate change is back on the agenda.
“The Kyoto protocol expires in just over a month.” said CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker. “UN climate chief Christiana Figures recently stated her goal of a ‘centralized’ transformation of world economies. Climate campaigners want to lock in and expand commitments to the “Green Climate Fund” of $100 billion per year. The UN wants the U.S. in a new treaty by 2015. Point after point indicate that this year’s climate summit could prove very important and this is grounds for real concern.”
CFACT’s delegation will feature Lord Christopher Monckton who has mastered the intricacies of climate policy as few others have and communicates his findings in ways which always intrigue experts and laymen alike. Lord Monckton will be available in Qatar to all media.
“The public needs to wake up to the serious damage that can come out of this UN conference in Qatar” Rucker said. “Billions are being wasted on climate change policies which will have no meaningful impact on the climate and the science supporting alarmist climate theories is also crumbling. The worst possible outcome would be to lock the U.S. and the world into treaties and agreements. Once we’re in, it will be almost impossible to get out.”
