The much touted Paris Climate Accord aims at worldwide reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in order to keep global temperatures from rising more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels. This goal is purely arbitrary and based not upon any physical evidence, but upon the unproven assumption that carbon dioxide emissions play a significant role in global warming.

    Germany Surrenders to Trump, Waters Down G20 Climate Plan #Winning
    Written by JAMES DELINGPOLE on JUNE 30, 2017

    Germany has ‘massively weakened’ its climate action plan for next week’s G20 summit in Hamburg in order to appease Donald Trump.

    According to a shocked report in the green, EU-linked propaganda outlet Climate Change News, this represents a disastrous cultural surrender which

    “….shows the degree to which the German presidency has bent to the will of the Trump White House.”
