Climate Chaos! Did The White House Fib That India Would Join UN Climate Deal This Year?

modiThe White House told reporters Monday Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had agreed to move as quickly as possible to bring the Paris climate deal into force this year.

Media outlets were quick to report Modi intends to “join Paris climate agreement this year,” which came as news to Indian officials who denied making such a promise.

The Hindu newspaper reported Tuesday that “Indian officials said this was not the case.

Modi met with President Barack Obama Monday to discuss a wide range of issues, including global warming. While Modi and Obama did agree to phase out hydrofluorocarbons and promote green energy, Indian officials insisted the prime minister did not promise to sign onto a United Nations climate deal this year.

“While the U.S. side insisted that Mr. Modi and the President agreed that both countries would ratify the climate treaty within the current year — 2016 — Indian officials said this was not the case,” according to The Hindu.

The media firestorm hit before The Hindu published its article, but such reports were fueled by statements from the White House claiming Modi wanted to bring the UN agreement into force this year — a major goal of the Obama administration and environmental groups.

    This shows that for leftists the climate change agenda is more important than truth itself, and certainly more important than economic success or survival.

    The climate change agenda [b]IS[/b] the leftist agenda, and all who challenge it must suffer.

    In discussing climate change India has consistently said that elimination of poverty was their top priority. This is the way it should be am glad they haven’t changed.

    India priorities are real not some Made in America con game . Stick with it India you have it right . Failed USA presidential candidates , and a expiring President can safely be ignored .
    Poverty in India is being addressed through education ,more jobs and a healthy environment . Along way to go but at least the leaders in India aren’t standing their saying adjusting the worlds thermostat
    is the number 1 priority like some in the USA .
