1) The US must drastically reduce its emissions now, but China and India, the biggest polluters in the world, can continually increase their emissions to 2030 at which time they may or may not agree to comply with the agreement.
2) India, before it makes up it’s mind, demands to be paid 2.5 trillion dollars.
3) The US has to reduce our coal production. China and India does not and can increase it.
4) Russia can actually increase its emissions by 50%.
5) The US along with the rest of the developed world, have to pay hundreds of millions dollars into the United Nation’s climate fund with no guarantees that any other nation would do it. Given their existing track record with NATO and the UN, don’t expect that to happen.
How does this benefit the United States?
The above described agreement isn’t a contractual agreement, but it is a rape of the United States workers and taxpayers.
When China and India get serious about reducing carbon emissions, then maybe we could work some sort of fair deal. Meanwhile, I suggest they start with cleaning up New Dehli and Beijing.
