WP: US Should Ignore China In Pushing New Climate Control Methods

The Washington Post Editorial Board continues abdicating their role as a news organization to push advocacy, as they have done all week

A climate for change: The U.S. can help drive a new round of global carbon cuts

PROBABLY THE most persuasive argument against U.S. action on global warming is China. No U.S.-only initiative can stop the planet from warming. Any effective response to climate change will require broad, international effort.

Au contraire: this is the most persuasive argument

Then throw in the hard, scientific fact that 95% of climate models have failed. Add in the notion that most Warmists, including the Washington Post, refuse to change their own lives, especially in terms of continuing to use vast amounts of fossil fuels. Then look at what all their prescriptions for “fixing” the climate are, and we realize this is all simply a political issue, not scientific.

All true. But such coordination is not as out of reach as many believe. It is quite possible — if the United States does its part.

The European Union has been shrinking its carbon footprint for years, proof that the United States will not be cutting emissions alone. A 2013 study of 33 major nations found a broad move toward environmental protection in places such as Japan, Mexico and South Korea. Developed nations alone can have a noticeable effect: A Council of Economic Advisers study last month noted that the climate-change response will be a lot less expensive if developed countries start now and others catch up than if no one starts now.

Interestingly, many of the nations, especially in Europe, are abandoning much of their “climate change” mitigation practices, as they kill their economies, drive up unemployment, and create unintended consequences, like citizens freezing their buns off in the dark during the harsh winters 5 of the last 6 years, as the carbon permits for energy companies require them to cut back on energy. This also means that there has been a huge resurgence in using wood fired heating methods, so more trees are being cut down.

The world will not give up fossil fuels tomorrow — or many years from tomorrow. The transition scientists recommend will be slow, and the world may have to adapt to risks it did not have enough sense to avoid. But pointing out the difficulty of the problem is not a strategy. It is an excuse to shrink from one of history’s greatest challenges.

What is an excuse is the utter failure of Warmists so-called science. There’s no need to destroy economies, control citizen’s lives, control economies and companies, nor spend tons of money for a mostly fake issue.
