CFACT is sending an expert delegation to COP 22, the UN conference on climate change, which runs from November 7 – 18 in Marrakech, Morocco.
The U.S. election occurs during COP 22. No matter what the outcome, the ramifications of the election for the UN climate pact will be a fascinating topic.
CFACT executive director Craig Rucker asserted, “So much of what people have been told about global warming is flat-out wrong. Climate computer models have greatly exaggerated the current warming trend as well as the severity of extreme weather events worldwide, and ice and sea levels are all normal. These are scientifically recorded facts. The UN climate agreement will enrich a privileged few while placing crushing burdens on free economies, and will accomplish nothing meaningful for the climate. The hard-working people being asked to pay for the UN’s Paris Agreement need to know. CFACT is working to ensure they do.”
The UN made an extraordinary effort to reach agreement while President Obama is still in office. Many of the agreement’s key provisions such as emissions targets, however, were made non-binding to aid President Obama in avoiding Senate ratification. But extreme elements of the climate movement are now seeking to expand the Paris Agreement to include such radical ideas as an international court of “climate justice” and liability for developed nations for “loss and damage” suffered by less-developed nations due to severe weather. They seek to use the ongoing UN process to make such provisions policy whether gradually or overtly.
CFACT’s delegation will include Marc Morano, publisher of CFACT’s ClimateDepot, one of the most visited and influential climate news and information services in the world. He served as communications director for the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and has worked in television, radio and print journalism. Marc Morano is the host of Climate Hustle, CFACT’s groundbreaking documentary that premiered during the Paris climate talks last year, and was the #1 movie in America per screen during its national one-night theater event in May.
