“Top officials from nearly 200 nations agreed to the first deal committing every country in the world to reducing the fossil fuel emissions that cause global warming” stated the New York Times article. Granted, it’s not binding, is voluntary and based on “global peer pressure”, but what the heck, it’s better than nothing, right?
The article closed by saying that “Obama wants to sign on to the plan because he sees his role in fighting climate change as a cornerstone of his legacy", he and his advisers say.
Interesting that he wants his legacy to be one of “fundamentally changing (transforming) the United States,” indeed almost every aspect of it socially, economically, historically, etc., yet also desires a legacy of fighting against climate change for all he’s worth.
There is a hidden consistency here, to be truthful. They both lead to the near-total transformation, indeed evisceration, of the United States of America as we knew it.
