Warmist reporter Amy Harder of Axios: 'I think it is going to be difficult to acknowledge, In order to address climate change, you need to make fossil fuels more expensive and there appears to be this disconnect between that reality and what countries are willing to put on the table at countries like this in Poland...At a certain point, you can't expect to hold more conferences to get more ambition. You really have to change the energy policies in different countries.'
'We are seeing outside the bubble that is these climate talks, you are seeing this is very difficult. France saw a lot of violent protests over among other things higher fuel costs because of taxes. I think it is going to be very difficult when push comes to shove to institute policies that will make energy costs more expensive...another conference won't achieve that.'
Morano: 'We have protests in Canada and Brazil canceling the U.S. Climate summit. A lot of credit goes to president Donald Trump, pulling United States out of Paris agreement is causing a domino effect. After the summit I got back from in Poland, U.N. Climate summit, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Russia, all refusing to sign on the alarmist U.N. Report came on in October this is major progress for people who care about energy security and sovereignty and against the U.N. Agenda.'
“Climate action offers a compelling path to transform our world for the better,” Guterres continued. “In short, we need a complete transformation of our global energy economy, as well as how we manage land and forest resources. We need to embrace low-carbon, climate-resilient sustainable development.”
The “green” economy “means embracing carbon pricing,” Guterres continued, arguing that the gas (CO2) exhaled by every human being is “pollution” that must be taxed and regulated.
The biggest change to come out of COP24 is the establishment of a “rule book” that participating nations will use to report their greenhouse gas emissions and funding efforts. Additionally, the rules will allow countries to monitor the carbon reduction efforts of other governments. The U.S. expressed some pleasure over the new agreement, believing it will force other countries to be held more accountable for their carbon emissions.
Nothing from the two week-long summit is binding. The lack of any major breakthroughs attracted criticism. “In the climate emergency we’re in, slow success is no success,” Durwood Zaelke, the president of the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development, stated.
