Obama energy secretary Ernest Moniz admits to Congress: Unilateral U.S. climate action is pointless — From Ernest Moniz’s written testimony for today’s House hearing on Obama’s climate change plan: ‘Although we are still one of the largest emitters on a per person basis, U.S. emissions represent only about a fifth of the global total. As such, a global effort will be required if we are to avoid increasing climate damages in the future.’

No, we cannot.  We are working within our authority to do what we can.’
