Climate Conference Just In Time For The Liberals

To sign another ":Kyoto Accord:" to look good, and then do nothing again!

Or can they do nothing if they sign this agreement?

Some in the US are worried about this tiny little portion of the agreement on page 19.

According to the proposed draft text of the climate treaty, the tribunal would take up issues such as “climate justice,” “climate finance,” “technology transfers,” and “climate debt.”
Buried on page 19 of the 34-page document is the critical text – still heavily bracketed with text that hasn’t been completely resolved and agreed upon – reads:
[An International Tribunal of Climate Justice as][A] [compliance mechanism] is hereby established to address cases of non-compliance of the commitments of developed country Parties on mitigation, adaptation, [provision of] finance, technology development and transfer [and][,] capacity-building[,] and transparency of action and support, including through the development of an indicative list of consequences, taking into account the cause, type, degree and frequency of non-compliance.
The U.N. held a preparatory conference in September in Bonn, Germany, that drafted language to be approved at the upcoming Paris climate summit. At the Bonn meeting the U.N. brought together more than 2,000 participants from governments, observer organizations and the media.
But none of those media chose to report on the proposed new global tribunal.


We know the Liberals LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the UN, and lefties love to pander to other extreme lefties. Be assured that the Liberals will go to Paris with trumpets blazing that Canada is back and they will sign whatever is put in their faces so they can look good to the :"world":. God, I miss Harper already. We are about to get creamed on the international stage. At least Harper was smart enough not to buy into the lefty propaganda, we can';t hold out the same hope for Trudeau. 

Unfortunately, Alberta will be represented by the NDP, who have already signaled that they are ready to sign on to anything that makes them look like climate activists....heck that';s all they have on staff, so why would we be shocked.  

I would say buckle up, but the NDP budget means we can';t afford a buckle, much less pants that need the buckle.

I have been following this development with a sinking feeling; this link is to Lord Monckton's take on the Paris accord.

Liberals will sign any piece of paper put before them by the UN; historically this has not been in Canada's best interest. Trudeau, with E May in tow will cheerfully sign the accord without reading it.I had believed the US Senate was our best chance for scuttling an agreement. They definitely would not ratify any agreement ceding US authority and committing taxable funds to the UN for redistribution. The Kyoto accord was fairly decisively dealt with by a 95-0 resolution in 1997. Knowing this the Obama administration intends to try to bypass Senate requirement for ratification. This is for our American friends to decide, but Canadians can only hope Obama is unsuccessful in this ploy, and the Paris deal does not include US.If US is not involved others such as China may not sign on.

I agree with you Martin, add the NDP to the mix and Alberta is screwed.
