The non-binding and unenforceable Paris Climate Agreement goes into full force today and the U.S. election is sparking worries among the world’s top climate alarmists. One candidate, Republican presidential nominee #Donald Trump, has vowed to cancel the #Climate Change accord if it costs American jobs. The other, Democratic presidential nominee #Hillary Clinton, plans to expand on it, despite her split personality on fossil fuels in private speeches.
The Paris Climate Agreement was reached after enough countries signed and ratified it to go into full force, three years sooner than its forefathers expected. Many countries rushed to ratify it because of the upcoming 2016 election being such a close call between two very distinct candidates. One says he’ll put America first while the other talks (privately) about a governing global authority.
Trump has threatened to “renegotiate” the climate accord and cancel future payments to the United Nations Green Climate Fund (GCF). Trump disputes the link between man-made emissions and changes in global temperatures while Clinton uses any weather event to push the catastrophic global warming narrative.
