The Big Bluff: Paris Agreement to “come into force” 4 days before US election. “Force” means nothing.

UN makes power play against Trump

International governments have made a power play against Donald Trump by ratifying an international climate deal earlier than expected, effectively preventing him from “canceling” the deal as he has promised to do.

That means Trump, should he be elected president in November, could not “cancel” or renegotiate the terms of the agreement.

Which army is going to make the US pay?

More than anything else the Global Parasites are afraid of free voters and November 8th. That’s why this “Paris Agreement” charade had to be rushed in to pip the US election, and the news headlines are full of meaningless terms like “coming into force”. There is no international force. There are no auditors or policemen that are going to turn up to Fort Knox and take the money, or jail the “wrong doers”.

The UN says the Paris deal is done, because it wants to fool the voters into submission. But the US voters can choose a Congress that disagrees. Nothing stops the US from simply ignoring an international law. Which army is going to make the US pay?

Paris Climate change deal, PR Warning.

It’s a bluff designed to fool US voters into thinking it is a done deal. It’s fake in so many ways — most of the countries signing up have signed up to do nothing, they are not even legally bound to achieve that low bar (should, should, should, not shall, shall, shall.) The internationally “legally binding” stuff  is only that — oo-err: countries have to make up a plan and report on it. And what does “legally binding” mean when it is only backed by “international law”?

US citizens are not part of an international government, nor bound by laws and fantasies concocted by foreign committees they didn’t elect.

The Climate-by-force group know they are selling a vision the voters won’t buy if they have a choice, so at every step the plan now is to not offer voters a choice about paying for climate change “action”. The Trump phenomenon is completely foiling those plans. He’s giving US voters a choice. In Australia whenever they’ve had a real choice they’ve said “No” to climate taxes and trading schemes. Polls show US voters rate climate at the bottom of every list, a third think it’s a hoax, and 42% of US adults don’t want to pay even $12 a year to stop climate change. Fully 61% say climate debate is not over.

The only real international force that applies is the force of shame — of badgering by diplomats to say “tut, tut”. Who cares?

It’s time real democracies remembered what thousands of men fought and died for — not to be ruled by foreigners.

Obama was elected by the people and for the people, but so was the US congress.

 Trump could ignore the goals that Obama has set — and some conservatives expect he would do just that.

William Yeatman, a senior fellow at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, said Trump could also insist the Senate needs to ratify the deal and send it to lawmakers, who would likely vote it down.

But Trump would have the power to shape American policy in other ways, including by nominating a ninth justice to the Supreme Court.

The high court is likely to decide the fate of Obama’s biggest climate change regulation, likely in its next term.  – The Hill

h/t pat


Politicians are eager to please,
And oblige the U.N. on their knees,
But Mr. Trump ‘s not P.C.,
And may set nations free,
By rejecting their climate decrees.

– Ruairi

UPDATE: The Washington Post agrees (though in fear). What President Obama gave by simple decree could surely be removed just as easily:

A President Trump could wreck progress on global warming

IT TOOK global negotiators a quarter-century to strike the Paris climate agreement, an international accord aimed at slowing global warming. The agreement represents the best hope for a world in whichno one country acting alone can do enough to fight this global threat. Donald Trump could destroy the agreement with a stroke of a pen, and with it any hope that the world will keep the planet’s temperature within the boundaries scientists say are safe.

The Paris deal represents a major U.S. commitment, but it is not a treaty with the force of law. President Obama submitted the U.S. emissions goal; Mr. Trump could withdraw it just as easily.
