There are two main reasons why President Obama stands a polar bear’s chance in hell of imposing a binding carbon emissions reduction treaty on the US in the name of combating catastrophic, unprecedented man-made global warming.
1. It will kill the jobs, prosperity and personal freedom on which the American dream was built.
2. There is absolutely no hard evidence that catastrophic, unprecedented man-made global warming is anything more than a figment of the President’s and his greenie chums’ warped imaginations.
Fortunately for all the rent-seeking one percenters, bent climate ‘scientists’, green activists, ‘clean’ ‘energy’ lobbyists, environment correspondents and professional victim groups who depend on the “global warming” scare for their livelihood, the president has hit on the perfect solution.
Obama plans to bypass the democratic process, override all those pesky checks and balances, and railroad through that legislation anyway by appealing to the higher authority of the United Nations.
