If Trump Exits Paris, Will It Make The Slightest Difference To Climate?

If Trump Exits Paris, Will It Make The Slightest Difference To Climate?

Word is coming out of Washington that President Trump has finally made the decision to exit the Paris Agreement.

   

There have already been various stories about the apocalypse waiting around the corner if that happens, not least from so-called scientists who should know better, eg:

But just what difference will it make to global emissions?

Obama promised to cut GHG emissions by 26% from 2005 levels of 6.2 GtCO2e, in his INDC at Paris. Yet between 2005 and 2012 (the last year figures are available from UNFCCC) emissions had already fallen by 11%. Most of this occurred shortly after the financial crash.

Provisional data suggests that emissions have flattened since 2012.

Therefore, if the US keeps to its target, emissions would need to drop by about another 0.9 GtCOe.

But what about global emissions?

Even the UNFCCC admitted that the Paris Agreement would mean that these would rise from 49 Gt in 2010, to 55 Gt in 2030, a rise of 6 Gt.

Therefore, if the US does not cut emissions any further, worldwide emissions will rise by 6.9 Gt, instead of 6.0 Gt.

If climate scientists honestly believe that the US exiting from Paris will make so much difference, perhaps they ought all to get on a (slow) boat to China, and ask them why they are not cutting their emissions.

As we all know, none of this has anything at all with climate. The real concern amongst corrupt scientists, rent seeking renewable scamsters and wealth redistributors is that the money will dry up.

Take away the US, and the whole house of cards will soon come crashing down.

Reports on Wednesday that President Donald Trump has decided to pull the United States out of the Paris climate change accord prompted a freakout on the Left, but several experts disputed predictions of environmental calamity. The 147-nation pact, negotiated in Paris in 2015, set a goal of limiting the rise in global temperatures to less […]

Poll – Trump and the Paris Climate Agreement #ParisAgreement

Emotions seem to be running high over whether trump will stay or exit the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015. Earlier, we reported President Trump will pull the United States out of the Paris climate change agreement, according to several sources on Wednesday.

Since WUWT is read by both sides of the issue, I thought I’d run a poll to ask, so here goes.
