Climate Scientist: Obama Can’t Keep His Global Warming Promises

obamaPresident Barack Obama will meet with world leaders Friday to sign the Paris Climate Agreement, but the plan won’t slow global warming according to a climate scientist who spoke to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Obama will promise the world Friday that America will cut carbon dioxide (CO2) by 26 to 28 percent by the year 2025, even though the Supreme Court prevented Obama’s Clean Power Plan from being implemented in February.

“President Obama should rescind his emissions pledges made under the Paris Climate Agreement for two primary reasons,” Chip Knappenberger, a climate scientist at the free-market Cato Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “The first is that I don’t believe that human-caused climate change is a “problem” that rises to a level which requires solutions which may jeopardize future well-being through energy restrictions/price increases, and secondly, it appears highly unlikely that US energy policies will actually come close to meeting his emissions targets under the timeframe that he has promised.”

The Clean Power Plan was expected to cost a staggering $41 billion annually. Yet, the plan wouldn’t have had a large impact on global warming. Data modeling created by the Enviromental Protection Agency (EPA) shows that the Clean Power Plan would only have adverted 0.019° Celsius of warming by the year 2100, an amount so small it couldn’t be detected.

“President Obama signing the Paris Agreement on Earth Day would be a disingenuous act and would show the rest of the world that we value symbolism over substance,” Knappenberger continued.

Ironically, some of the biggest reductions of declining CO2 emissions has come from industries the president fought against.

    But this is THE GREAT AND MIGHTY OBAMA!!!

    He alone is able to make the seas stop rising!…

    By the way, the word we’re looking for is “[b]hubris[/b]”.

    On the other hand, If he gets all he wants he [u]will[/u] achieve the goal of crippling the United States economy verses non-free-market countries to create the illusion that authoritarian control of resources, production, and distribution actually works to some degree.

    Maybe Hosanna O’Bama will part the seas and make dry land appear.

    Obama will be no different than other world leaders when he signs the Paris Accord. He will be signing an agreement that he can’t keep to solve a problem that doesn’t exist.

    The European Union is already back paddling from its efforts to reduce emissions after suffering the high costs. China is constructing coal fired power plants at warp speed. India has said its top priority is the eradication of poverty, as it should be.

    Without ratification of the US Senate the accord for the US ends at the end of Obama’s term.

    Very true. But perhaps the whole climate change scam is more like a list of prescriptions looking for an illness that doesn’t exist.

    Do you think any kind of dictatorship will stick to this agreement, especially the Middle East, since they have the most to lose while trying to bankrupt every western government that built their economies on energy usage.

    Obama is just polishing up his CV for a plum
    greenie cash dispensing job . He certainly mastered the art of massive added debt .
    Can’t imagine anyone topping that legacy highlight .
