Barack Obama secretly negotiated a climate change treaty, not with Congress, but with some of the world’s most oppressive foreign leaders in the U.N. The treaty, which he plans to sign without Senate ratification, requires the U.S. to donate resources and wealth to the world’s developing countries to be distributed by the statists in the U.N. We’ve already committed $100 million.
Within days, Obama will likely sign the treaty without Senate ratification. When Obama attends the G20 summit in Hangzhou, the climate change treaty will be on the agenda.
Erasing the Senate’s treaty powers is no longer a leftist pipe dream.
In Washington, a senior White House advisor told reporters that Obama plans to join the Paris agreement formally “as soon as possible”.
“We’ve made the commitment that we will join [the agreement] in 2016,” said Brian Deese. “And we’ve made the commitment to do that as soon as possible this year.”
“With respect to exactly when, I don’t have any announcements on that front,” he added. “But we have committed, and we’ve been working on that issue.”
The Standing Committee of China’s “parliament” is thinking about signing on to the Climate Change treaty on Friday, the one that Obama is pretending is an agreement and not a treaty.
The Chinese will just put up — literally — a coal plant every week to ten days and say they are in agreement because it’s all a crock anyway. China will get to pollute until 2030 but we have to start following stringent requirements in every area of the country by 2020 so our economy can go in the tank. India gets to pollute until they become rich.
Some Republican lawmakers oppose what they view as the administration’s attempts to circumvent Congress, and have sought to link Paris agreement ratification to U.S. funding for international climate programs, CNS News reported.
Why only “some” Republican lawmakers? They are actually going to let the president rob them of their authority. That’s the peoples’ authority they are surrendering.
The White House SPOX wants you to believe it doesn’t require Senate approval.
“The Paris agreement is an executive agreement, and so the president will use his authority, that has been used in dozens of executive agreements in the past, to join and formally deposit our instrument of acceptance and therefore put our country as a party to the Paris agreement,” he said.
While treaties require Senate ratification, he said, “there’s a broad category of executive agreements where the executive can enter into those agreements without that advice and consent.”
No one in their right mind would think this is merely an agreement and not a treaty.
Later in Monday’s briefing, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the way the Paris agreement was structured allows Obama to implement it, using authority that he has already been given by Congress. He’s referring to the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The US is now responsible for developing poor countries throughout the world and, unsurprisingly, 195 countries signed on.
The draft states: “Developed countries shall provide developing countries with long-term, scaled-up, predictable, new and additional finance, technology and capability-building.”
They are going to slow the pace of climate change. Think of how insane that sounds.
The Paris accord aims to keep average temperatures from rising more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, in a bid to avoid what advocates claim could be potentially catastrophic effects on the planet. These extremists wanted it to be 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The 1.5 degrees came from a lunatic named Hans Joachim Schellnhuber.
Schellnhuber, founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, who is now an adviser to Pope Francis, is a radical who wrote books that insist governments must not allow temperatures to rise more than 2 degrees higher than the start of the industrial revolution,though he believes 1.5 degrees is ultimately necessary until it gets to zero.
Of global warming, and as a proponent of population control, he has said, “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.”
He has called for an “Earth Constitution” to transcend even the “U.N. Charter.” Along with that there would be a “Global Council” of elite elected by “all the people on Earth.” There would be a “Planetary Court” which would be “transnational” with appeals accepted from everyone, especially if there are violations of the Earth Constitution.
Can’t you just feel the stranglehold of global governance?
What is a low greenhouse gas emission economy? It’s a socialist economy.
The treaty states “To achieve this, policies and measures should take into account different socio-economic contexts, be comprehensive, cover all relevant sources, sinks and reservoirs of greenhouse gases and adaptation, and comprise all economic sectors [for developed countries].”
Countries like the US will be compelled to consider sustainable development in all “policies and measures” and “in all economic sectors.” They can easily control every aspect of our lives if they choose to do so and they will.
There is a reporting requirement to be updated every five years.
The pact includes an Orwellian International Tribunal for Climate Justice. Its responsibilities are not yet clear.
In August 2014, the Sentinel predicted this:
Barack Obama, working in conjunction with the socialists and communists in the U.N. (who despise us), will sign an accord that will operate under the pretense of updating the 1992 Climate Change Treaty to include Agenda 21 imperatives. Agenda 21 is the U.N. plan of action on climate change.
Obama will bypass Congress.
It will be the largest redistribution of wealth that the world has ever seen.
Barack Obama will call it an accord. He will use parts of the 1992 treaty so he can claim the treaty is merely being updated and doesn’t need congressional approval.
Any treaty must be approved by two-thirds majority of the Senate. He would never get Senate approval for this very extreme agreement so he will ignore the Constitution and abide by an accord that will compel Western nations to enact sweeping regulations to cut their fossil-fuel emissions.
Fines and reparations for use of fossil fuels will be levied. Our money and our control over our own resources will be turned over to the U.N.
In Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee hearings in May, 2015, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) asked State Department Acting Assistant Secretary Judith Garber if the administration plans “to pursue a course to try to make it [a climate change treaty] legally binding in the United States by bypassing Congress at the same time?”
Without making any effort to deny the real possibility of an unconstitutional fiat, she unabashedly stated, “Our objective for Paris is to have a significant agreement, a meaningful agreement with robust and transparent emissions reduction targets that include all countries, including the major emerging economies. At this point the question of what that agreement would look like at the end is still an open question because we are at initial stages of the negotiations and everything is still on the table.”
The arrogance of this administration is stunning. They simply dodged questions.
Last May, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump pledged to cancel the Paris climate accord.
“We’re going to cancel the Paris climate agreement, and stop – unbelievable – and stop all payments of the United States tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs,” he said in an energy policy speech in North Dakota.
