Calvin Beisner, Founder and National Spokesman of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation,“The ‘commitments’ made in the Paris agreement are voluntary and unenforceable, which means most nations will not comply. EU nations said they would make binding commitments only if all major emitters did—and they didn’t.”
China and India, the #1 and #3 CO2 emitting nations, plan for their emissions to continue rising at least until 2030, and reductions even in rate of growth later will depend on whether they can be made without slowing their rise out of poverty. Other developing countries’ “commitments” are similar.
Bjorn Lomborg, Director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, explains that full compliance with the Paris agreement would cost hundreds of billions of dollars per year beginning now and rise to $1–2 Trillion per year from 2030 onward. It would still reduce CO2 emissions by only 1% of the amount the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says is needed to limit global warming to 2˚C (3.6˚F) over pre-industrial levels.
Bjorn Lomborg, Director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, explains many key issues facing mankind and the environment. He reaches some sobering conclusions about the relative importance of man-made global warming.
Craig Idso, Robert Carter, and Fred Singer, contributors to Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change explain why scientists disagree about man-made global warming. There is no consensus. Climate scientists can be biased. Origins of bias include careerism, grant-seeking, political views, and confirmation bias. Eric Jelinski - Canada: The science is not complete, but some of the pertinent information is that global warming has stopped even though CO2 emissions have increased....clearly a hoax to collect taxes to fight climate change or give taxpayers money to other countries to fight climate change, and then tax Canadian people to pay for that via a carbon tax.
