To great fanfare and self-congratulation, the European Union signed on to the Paris climate treaty in December. But it won’t be able to keep its promise. Yes, the entire enterprise is a sham.
The British Guardian reported this week that the “EU is set to emit 2 billion tons more CO2 than it promised at the Paris climate talks, threatening an agreement to cap global warming at 2C.” Unsurprisingly, “lawmakers say that the shortfall could spur criticism from other countries that signed up to the Paris agreement, which aims for net zero emissions later this century.”
As noted by The American Interest, “the EU was perhaps the most vociferous in its attempt to try and hammer out an international climate treaty.” But as it turns out, it has nothing — its leaders are just another bunch of climate hypocrites who are convinced that if they can act as if they are defending the climate, others will believe in their moral superiority.
Neither the Paris talks nor any other United Nations global warming conference is actually intended to save the planet from devastating climate change. Those behind the climate scare know that their goals are unreachable and are aware that not only have the dire predictions failed to transpire, the reality is that it hasn’t warmed in almost two decades.
But the climate meetings and the yowling about carbon dioxide emissions continue. Why?
Simply put, the global warming alarmist community wants to reorganize the world economy by weakening developed nations that became economically strong through primarily capitalist economic systems. The benefits these nations have worked to accrue are to be handed to nations that have not earned them. Zimbabwe tyrant Robert Mugabe has rushed to the front of the line, demanding that the U.N. send him $1.5 billion a year to feed his people, because, he says, they have grown hungry due to global warming. That’s the shakedown in progress.
The U.N.’s top global warming official, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, has even admitted this. A year ago, she said “this is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
