“President Biden announced Friday that the U.S. has officially rejoined the Paris climate agreement, reentering the international accord without Senate ratification a month after signing a directive to reverse the Trump administration’s exit,” according to the conservative Washington Times. [emphasis added]
“Mr. Biden made the announcement Friday at the Munich Security Conference, which is being held virtually this year, while Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a statement saying that ‘the United States officially becomes a Party again today.’…
“Former President Trump, who said the agreement would undermine the U.S. economy, refused to abide by the U.S. pledge. Even so, the U.S. continued to lead the world in reducing emissions on a per-country basis during his tenure as natural gas replaced coal in electricity generation, fueled by cheaper gas prices from hydraulic fracturing…
“‘The Paris Climate Accord is an illegal effort to implement an international treaty without Senate ratification,’ tweeted JunkScience founder Steve Milloy, adding that if the measure is so popular, ‘why doesn’t Joe Biden submit it to the Senate?‘ [emphasis added]
“Climate Depot’s Marc Morano, author of the upcoming book “Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal is Even Worse Than You Think,” called the announcement ‘a meaningless virtue signal by the Biden administration.‘ [emphasis added]
“‘The planet will not notice one bit whether the UN Paris pact exists or whether the U.S. is a part of it,’ Mr. Morano said in an email. ‘Even the UN officials now admit that the Paris pact did not ‘save’ the planet as [carbon dioxide] emissions continued to rise.'” [emphasis added]
