‘A turning point for the world’: Obama praises global climate change pact in WH address

by FoxNews.com  |  published on December 13, 2015

President Obama hailed the approval of a far-reaching global climate accord to limit greenhouse gas emissions adopted Saturday in Paris, in a statement from the White House Cabinet Room Saturday afternoon.

Praising the pact as a ‘turning point for the world,’ Obama commended leaders from more than 190 countries for working together “to show what is possible when the world stands as one.”

Leaders of the many nations involved had been negotiating the pact for four years after earlier attempts to reach such a deal failed.

    For a whole lot of good that’ll do when neither China or India has any intention of damaging their burgeoning economies via fossil fuel sources. If anyone thinks otherwise I’ve got a four-wheeled tricycle I’d like to sell you. Then there’s that proverbial bridge of course. Not to mention trading-up an island for a set of beads. It’s all beyond the absurd.

    Well, this has confirmed that there are bozos all over the earth.

    190 countries can agree to accept BOGUS “climate science” that has been proven to be nothing more than a “get rich quick scheme” for the likes of “algore” and political BS. But those same countries cannot agree to eradicate muslim extremism? The inmates truly are running the asylum!

      yup, it is a distribute the wealth kind of thing. That P O S in the W H, thinks he is Robin Hood.

        Or maybe Santa Claus?

    • Chris Robinette

      It is all for money.

    Hopefully, but not likely, congress will not fund one penny of this and will NOT approve it. If obama would work as hard to defeat radical islam terrorist as he has against this nonsense global warming cr@p we would probably have defeated ISIS and the rest of the scum.

      I hope you are right, that congress will not, and does not fund this “thing”.

      • 7papa7

        I hope I am right also but with the congresses history I probably am not. What we need to do is contact our politicians and demand they don’t fund this and that we will be watching how they vote.

          I heard about 7 to 10 days ago that this would be dead in the water, before it even hit our shores. Keeping my fingers crossed that this is the case.

          • 7papa7

            I hope that is accurate.

    • Chris Robinette

      Obama has already pain them about 3 billion for a tie.

        If it were up to obama we would be giving it all to the muzzie terrorists.

        • Chris Robinette

          then he would start a war he will not enjoy at all and neither would his “muslim brother & sisters”.

          • 7papa7

            I honestly don’t think he cares.

      • Terry Rushing

        Where did Obammy get the money? Maybe out of his personal checking account?

        • Chris Robinette

          The federal reserve printed up some fresh off the presses.

    • Terry Rushing

      All this bunk about “greenhouse gases”, complete with doctored data and doctored photos is nothing short of a shakedown akin to Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition. We don’t need to entangle ourselves in giving away money that we don’t have nor do we need to be crippling our industrial power with EPA “pie-in-the-sky” rules. A far better move would be to shut down the EPA and get out of the USA unfriendly UN.

        You are 1000% right. Many of there trumped up numbers were taken near equipment that put off heat, others were purposefully improperly calibrated and the list goes on and on and on.The one thing we know for sure is that we go through cycles of warming and cooling. In 1974 Time magazine wrote an article “Another Ice Age”. Guess what that cycle was over and it began to warm again. These climatologists have no idea what they are talking about. They are talking about the end of the world because of warming, well guess what we are beginning a cooling trend again.
        You got to remember, shakedowns are what this administration excels in. They don’t have even the beginning of a clue. I have also been screaming to get out of the UN for many many years. They are the most useless organization in the world. If the EPA is put under control then I can see it still existing but what they are doing now is totally over the top. They need to answer directly to congress and they must have very strong and strict guidelines and if they violate them then cut funding.
