Pelosi To Lead Delegation To Climate Summit
[Image: 1011f54a9b611d879804c34e92cb446f8e1420f7...;amp;h=450]

Quote:House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of members of Congress to the annual international climate summit known as COP25 in Madrid, Spain, next week. While the delegation will include members of both the House and Senate, it will not be bipartisan, as only Democrats will be attending.

"It is a privilege to accompany a high-level Congressional delegation to Spain to combat the existential threat of our time: the climate crisis," Pelosi said in a statement on Saturday.

"Taking action to protect our planet is a public health decision for clean air and clean water for our children, an economic decision for creating the green, good-paying jobs of the future, a national security decision to address resource competition and climate migration and also a moral decision to be good stewards of God's creation and pass a sustainable, healthy planet to the next generation," she said. "On behalf of the U.S. Congress, I am proud to travel to COP25 to reaffirm the commitment of the American people to combating the climate crisis."

In 2016, attendees at the COP25 summit in Paris, France, announced they would sign a pact to lower greenhouse gas emissions, a deal commonly known as the Paris Climate Agreement. President Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement shortly after taking office, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced earlier this month the U.S. had begun formal proceedings to pull the U.S. out.

The withdrawal process takes a year and will not become official until at least a day after the 2020 presidential election. The terms of the deal say no country can withdraw in the first three years, so November 4, 2019, was the earliest the U.S. could actually start the withdrawal process. Climate experts largely agree that pulling out will hurt efforts to fight global warming.

"Global objectives can't be met unless everybody does their part and the U.S. has to play the game," said Appalachian State University environmental sciences professor Gregg Marland, who is part of a global effort to track carbon dioxide emissions, in an interview with the Associated Press earlier this month. "We're the second biggest player. What happens to the game if we take our ball and go home?"

The climate summit in Madrid is taking place shortly after the UN released its annual "emissions gap" report showing the amount of greenhouse gases being pumped into the atmosphere hitting a new high last year, despite the pledges by several countries to reduce them.

Current national pledges would leave the world 5.8 degrees Fahrenheit warmer by 2100 than pre-industrial times, with dramatic consequences for life on Earth, according to the report. A fivefold increase in measures pledged so far would be needed in order to limit the increase to 2.7 degrees, the goal of the climate agreement.

If we’re not part of the Paris Climate Accord, how exactly is she “taking action” to protect our planet? Not to mention only Dems are taking this trip so, again, how are they “taking action” to protect the air and water on our planet?

They’re taking our taxpayer dollars to fund a lovely vacation to Europe during the holidays.. These people disgust me. It's criminal that with all her money we have to support her lifestyle.

I assume they are all sailing over there on a catamaran-style boat that doesn't require any kind of petroleum?

China is choking the entire planet all by itself, until they are doing something the efforts of the rest of the world a basically moot.

Virtually all of Europe is increasing emissions. We are one of the handful of nations that was meeting its targets-and we aren't in it any more.

I wonder why they can’t do their world saving over the internet?

I’ll answer my own question. There are no perks or photo ops over the internet. Not to mention you don’t get a free vacation with other people’s money. Damn traitorous bassterds they are....

That was one of my two initial thoughts as well. The other was picturing Trump touting how she was out of the country (if she goes) not getting anything done instead of putting the USMCA Trade Bill up for a vote in the House. Hey, if she doesn't even care enough about here own California district to get it cleaned up, how can we expect her to care enough about the rest of the country to get anything worthwhile done? She's as worthless as ........

Pelosi To Lead Delegation To Climate Summit
Care about the “planet”?

The oceans?!? She lives BLOCKS from a big asss ocean and watches as it gets horribly despoiled every, single, freaking day.

None of that head turning wretch is being treated before it washes out to the innocent turtles or sea birds or seals.

Why doesn’t Fransicko Nan care a whit about her own backyard and neighbors?

Easy self answer: cause they’re frauds.

Same as the Algore, same as the carealot “climate activist” hollyweird folks jetting around to another summit to try and prove their relevance and that repeating someone else’s written words really isn’t allll they’re about.

But, when all said and done, yea. Fraudsters.

Sad.
