Obama Climate Change Edicts Struck Down by SCOTUS

That Obama legacy is falling fast... lol.

In the meantime China progresses in the area of solar energy taking away a ver favorite "argument" against the US doing anything helpful in the area of reducing CO2 emissions.

On top of that Trump makes America look like a naked dunce by not signing on to the climate change declaration signed by every single attendee at the G20 meeting except us. I guess he didn't sign because the science is not settled yet?

He is not making America First again or great again, he's making America Alone. That is not leading. It is abandoning our former role on the world stage. The leaders were planning "work-arounds" to get things done without him/us. That doesn't look like making America Great Again to me. He is the worst president in modern history. He has, as the Australian reporter said, pressed the "FAST FORWARD" button on the fading of the America's leadership.

China’s pledged to “peak” greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. What’s implied here is that China will increase emissions in absolute terms during that time.

China basically promised to follow its already expected development track, where emissions are expected to level off between 2025 and 2030.

But China said they would reduce emissions per unit of economic output 60 to 65 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, right?

Yes, but China is only promising to continue an economic trend that’s been occurring since they’ve industrialized.

China had already cut emissions per unit of output nearly 34 percent below 2005 levels before Paris went into effect in 2016. What’s interesting is its output pledge is only half the rate of reductions in recent years.

China can reduce its emissions per unit of output while increasing overall emissions — that’s what matters in terms of global warming. It’s almost like they are gaming the whole Paris agreement.

China’s emissions are expected to grow nearly 32 percent through 2040, according to projections from the Energy Information Administration. The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate projected Chinese emissions increasing 34 percent over 2012 levels by 2030.

Most of this increase will come from coal-fired electricity. China pledged to use more natural gas, renewables and nuclear power, but coal is expected to provide the lion’s share of electricity in the country for decades to come.

Reports suggest China has scrapped plans for one hundred new coal-fired power plants, but that’s largely because its economic growth is slowing down and their population is aging. Older populations tend to have fewer industrial jobs.

Yet, China’s new five-year plan would “raise coal-fired power capacity from around 900 gigawatts last year to as high as 1,100 gigawatts by 2020,” which is “more than the total power capacity of Canada,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

China is also fueling coal-fired electricity production around the world. The country is part of a joint venture with Pakistan “to spend around $15 billion over the next 15 years to build close to a dozen coal power plants of varying sizes around the country,” Reuters reported.

Remember when he put those sanctions on Russia and it really screwed up Putin's and Tillerson's bottom line.

Too funny the timing of this thread. For the stupids......on CNN this morning they reported the largest chunk of ice in recorded history just broke off and it is the size of the state of Delaware. The scientist said this was not expected for years, but the global climate change is accelerating. No history will judge President Obama very favorably, and the knuckledraggers, maybe not so much.

This falls into the flat earth defenders. Unable to even wrap their tiny brains around concepts which are to complex for them to comprehend, but allow the racist agenda to continue. Too funny on the timing though.
