Carbon Control News reports State department climate envoy Todd Stern said in a June 3 speech that,
“Certainly no [global climate] deal will be possible if we don’t find a way forward with China.”
So what does this mean given that China has repeatedly vowed to never reduce its greenhouse gas emissions out of concern for its economic growth, believes that climate change is the fault of the West, and has demanded that the West give developing nations (including China) up to 1 percent of annual GDP supposedly to “assist climate adaptation and mitigation efforts”?
Does it mean that President Obama is looking for a way out of shackling the U.S. economy to the Son of the Kyoto Protocol which will be negotiated in Copenhagen this December?
Or is President Obama preparing us for his surrender of our money to Chinese extortion?
