So, besides a redistribution of wealth making a few tiny countries corrupt presidents unbelievably rich, and soothing the pitiful overstuffed egos of a few "world leaders" what exactly was accomplished in Paris?

Bangladesh, next to India, is probably the country that is most affected by increases in the ocean levels. Millions of impoverished people living at very close to sea level.

according to this alarmist website, China has far more people who are at risk from rising sea level-- in absolute numbers of people affected Bangledesh is like 5th - as a percent of the population they are 6th.

It is reassuring to know that now the Paris agreement has been reached the ocean levels will remain at their current levels, the poor of Bangladesh will continue to live dry but in poverty without means to cook their food but বাংলাদেশের রাষ্ট্রপতি will remain in his palace rolling in American subsidies, the working American people will have the benefit of paying higher prices for goods, and President Obama will allow himself the luxury of patting himself on the back for a job well done.

The only benefit I see is the "Environment" section of this forum can now be removed and Global Warming alarmists will need to find a new cause wring their hands over.

A non-binding agreement with zero enforcement mechaisms. Only an idiot, which the Obama admin is full of, would call this "historic".

Obamacare, the red line in the sand in Syria, Arab Spring, the jv team, the Iran nuclear deal? Sometimes it is easy to get his "historics moments" mixed up.

Impeachment: The Difference Between Nixon & Trump

Thom plus logo There is a very simple reason why some Republicans participated in the impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon, but none have so far broken ranks against Trump. That reason is the US Supreme Court.
