‘The Chinafication of America’: Reaction to Obama Bypassing the Senate with UN Climate Treaty: ‘Obama is taking a page from China’s government’

Marc Morano statement on Obama bypassing Senate ratification of UN climate ‘deal’. Morano is publisher of Climate Depot, former staff of U.S. Senate Environment  & Public Works Committee and producing and writing the new global warming documentary ‘Climate Hustle.’

Morano: “This is the Chinafication of America. Many global warming activists and the UN have previously praised China’s ability to impose climate and energy regulations without the messiness of democracy. See: NYT’s Friedman lauds China’s eco-policies: ‘One party can just impose politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward’

UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres laments U.S. democracy is ‘very detrimental’ in war on global warming — Lauds one-party ruled China for ‘doing it right’ on climate change

President Obama is taking a page from China’s government and is seeking to bypass democracy’s ‘very detrimental’ hurdles and just impose a new UN treaty on Americans. The Administration with both its EPA climate regulations (no climate impact) and the UN treaty has essentially declared ‘We don’t need no stinkin legislature.’

Sec. of State John Kerry is pushing the hardest for a UN agreement. See: Flashback NYT: John Kerry ‘hopes to use his position as secretary of state to achieve a legacy on global warming that has long eluded him’

We have known for years that the Obama administration was seeking no Senate ratification. See: Flashback 2009: Chris Horner: Kyoto II as Congressional-Executive Agreement: The Emerging Strategy?

Under EPA rules, the American people already face an increasingly centrally planned domestic energy economy and will now face one dictated from the United Nations without the Senate’s consent. The U.S. is currently heading to an energy deprived future. See: Winter blackouts could hit Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, regional grid operator warns

And we may end up like our European counterparts: See: Flashback 2011: We’re All North Koreans Now: ‘Era of Constant Electricity at Home is Ending, says UK power chief’ — ‘Families would have to get used to only using power when it was available’

Of course, eliminating plentiful energy is what the Obama administration officials have stated is their goal. See: Flashback 1975: John Holdren Says Real Threat to USA Is Cheap Energy: ‘The U.S.is threatened far more by the hazards of too much energy, too soon, than by the hazards of too little energy, too late.’

All of this comes at a time when the evidence continues to show that man-made global warming claims are failing. Global temperatures have flat-lined for nearly 18 years (with at least 38 excuses offered). Sea level rise has decelerated. Arctic summer sea ice may hit a decade high in 2014. (Sorry John Holdren, looks like your Arctic warnings about missing winter sea ice is still far off) Antarctica sea ice is at record expansion. Extreme weather is at or near historic lows, declining trends or no trends in hurricanes, tornadoes, wild fires, droughts and floods.

But despite all of this, the UN IPCC’s new report will claim its worse than we thought – by continuing to make scarier and scarier predictions of 50 to 100 years from now. See: Geologist Rebuts Media-Hyped Draft Of New UN IPCC Report As ‘Nonsense Totally Contrary To Real Evidence’

When current reality fails to alarm, just make scarier and scarier predictions and claim its worse than we thought because our predictions are now more alarming.”

Flashback: EU Commissioner: Global Warming Policy Is Right Even If Science Is Wrong - EU’s Hedegaard in 2013: ‘Let’s say that science, some decades from now, said ‘we were wrong, it was not about climate’, would it not in any case have been good to do many of things you have to do in order to combat climate change?.’

Flashback: Global governance? Leaked Obama administration memo seeks ‘to produce a global regime to combat climate change’

Flashback: UN Secretary-General on climate deal: ‘We will establish a global governance structure’

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels of Cato Institute: The President simply doesn’t care about the legislative branch when it comes to climate regulations.  He feels that the Supreme Court empowered him in Mass. v. EPA.  He lost the House over cap and trade in 2010 so what does it matter if the voters take it out on the Senate in 2014?  Besides, the electoral demographics in the Senate look as bad for the Repos in 2016 as they do for the Demos this year.  So they will just be out for two years anyway.

If that’s all cold and calculating, it is.  Welcome to Washington, where, with regard to climate change, we have a King, unless (fat chance) someone with standing can convince the courts to reign him in.”

State Deptartment spins: ‘It is entirely premature to say whether it will or won’t require Senate approval’ for UN agreement

Vulnerable Dem slams Obama over UN climate change effort - “It is fruitless for this Administration — or any Administration — to negotiate agreements with the rest of the world when it cannot even muster the support of the American people,” Rahall said Wednesday in a statement.”This Administration’s go it alone strategy is surely less about dysfunction in Congress than about the President’s own unwillingness to listen to our coal miners, steelworkers, farmers, and working families,” he added.

    Declaring it binding does not make it so without ratification by the Senate. This is just another desperate, feel-good gesture by Obama and the far-left.

  • MacDaddyWatch

    “Politically binding” is not legally binding. “Voluntary pledges” are not legally binding. “Seeking to bypass” is not a bypass.
    In short, this Obama fandango is politically motivated hoopla that has more in common with tapioca than it does with concrete.

    Given any opportunity, Obama will continue make an unambiguous fool out of himself before he chooses to lead.

    Income tax was never ratified, and never would be, and yet today we have income tax that was started by that privately owned entity called the Federal Reserve in 1913. Unless the people are vigilant, meaning that they are willing and able to kill enemies both foreign and domestic, then they will need to pay carbon/climate tax, as well as income tax along with (why not?) Mickey Mouse tax.

    • MacDaddyWatch

      The income tax required the XVI Amendment in order to collect taxes on incomes; it was thereby exempted from the ordinary approval process. Given the very low priority/concern assigned to Global Warming by the American public and our current attitude directed against tax hikes, I doubt that we are ever going to see any XXVIII Amendment to our constitution that would be needed to collect any carbon/climate taxes. So unless the Supreme Court’s John Roberts defines the latter to be an income tax (as he did with the ACA that provided it the XVI immunity and exemption), it can’t happen. But then again, John Roberts has been a cornucopia of surprises.

    The dictator-in-chief (failed community organizer, failed senator, failed everything and on top of that, Georgie Soros’ and his minions puppet) and his minions (the ones that love Mao and other commies) can’t seem to grasp the meaning of “NO WE DON’T WANT TOTAL, COMPLETE SOCIALISM”. Kinda reminds me of old Slick Willie’s “What is “IS”??? and old Hillary’s “What does in matter”??? HEY!!!! The commies have been trying to take over the Greatest Nation on the face of the Earth ever conceived, a democratic republic, for the last six decades. Remember Karl Marx, V, Lenin, J Stalin, Mao, Ho, Castro and his buddy Che and others??? Like old Lenin said “If a lie is repeated enough, it will become the truth”. Then we had old Sal Alinsky. another commie that Bill and Hillary rubbed elbows with. Then we had Cloward and Piven. If FDR and LBJ weren’t enough, along came Carter. Where is Carlos Hathcock when we need him??? Folks, if the hard working Patriotic tax payers can manage to 100% (or at least 95%) show up at the polls the next couple of rounds, we can beat the “free phones, money and everything” crowd and dump the commies ruining our beloved country. As Elvis sang “It’s Now or Never”. As I say “It’s time to take out the trash”. Faithful American Warrior, US Navy vet, 1966-1970 (someone that knows a thing or two about communism), Hospitalman, FMF/FMS Corpsman “Doc”; The “Big E” (CVN-65), USS Repose (AH-16), USS Lexington (CVA/S/T-16); God Bless America, an Exceptional Nation; All Gave Some, Some Gave All; FREEDOM IS NOT FREE.

    The Primary causes of global climate change relates to the sun and the oceans, Such a treaty will have no effect on climate. There is no evidence in the paleoclimate record that CO2 has any effect on climate. The primary so called greenhouse gas in the Earth’s atmosphere is H2O which provides ample negative feedbacks so as to mitigate any effect that changes in other greenhouse gases might have on climate. The primary heat retention gas in the earth’s atmosphere is N2 because of its abundance and because it is a very inefficient LWIR radiator. We must be reminded that a good absorber is also a good radiator and vis versa.

    Obama has the typical mindset. He believes that he needs to just do what’s right because he believes it’s right, regardless of the rule of law. Laws are only for those evil, right-wing conservatives to follow.

  • Uzi1

    Obama’s
    gambit is not so much about saving the climate as it’s about micro-managing
    every detail of our lives. He and others sharing the same liberal philosophy
    are destroying America as we knew it. The less credible the Climate Change
    fanatics become, the harder they fight. Their claims are NOT supported
    with empirical data so their clams are as extreme as a Sci-Fi movie.

    Nothing really surprising about this. Since when has this president been considered about doing anything good for the country he is in charge of?

    If you want to clearly understand the END GOAL , all you have to do is watch the Hunger Games….12 regions – FEMA regions , with 12 governors , with mega cities , bullet trains , this is Agenda 21 in its finished stage. Forget your Liberty , forget your home , forget your car , your air conditioning , your appliances , skiing , fishing , hiking , forget it all ….The world be will be plunged into darkness, that’s where they will take us …They are already beta testing 200,300 , 500 square foot apartments where the furniture folds into the walls …You can also forget about love , family and children for they want to control that too !!!!!
