Paris climate deal will not include global carbon price, says UN climate chief
A climate change deal to be agreed in Paris in December will not be able to come up with a global carbon price, the United Nations’ climate chief, Christiana Figueres, said on Tuesday.
The pyramid of lies is starting to fall apart. This is only a beginning.
Yippee!!! It's nice to hear some good news for a change. Now that's CHANGE I can believe in ;)
Yeah so they can't agree to exactly how much they wanna screw us. They'll come to a consensus eventually...
"Big multinational companies and investors, and most recently oil majors, have called for a global carbon price to help spur investments in low-carbon energy."
And why is that hard to believe? Well; talk about shooting yourself in the foot - more low-carbon energy would equals less carbon (fossil fuels) sales; the results would only spur higher 'global carbon prices'. Ha, ha.
"...jurisdictions around the world already have a carbon price or carbon pricing mechanism such as a tax."
And it goes into immediate effect (TAX) as soon as you squeeze the trigger on the nozzle at the gas pump.
"In July 2005, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delayed the release of a report showing that the average fuel efficiency of American cars and trucks had declined since the late 1980s. The EPA report was embargoed until after the final vote in Congress on a controversial energy bill which failed to address stagnating fuel efficiency standards."
"The EPA report showed that loopholes have allowed American vehicles' fuel economy to become less efficient since the 1980s.² For example, the average car or truck got 20.8 miles per gallon in 2004 as compared with 22.1 miles per gallon in the late 1980s. In general, the report demonstrated that improvements in engine technology have gone to making cars more powerful, not more fuel-efficient.³"
For the moment...the PTB are about to get heavy handed.

"The case against global warming is rapidly collapsing, putting the United Nations climate change agenda into a state of panic. This is why the UN has pulled out all the stops to make the 11/30-12/11 Paris Summit on Climate Change the turning point for Sustainable Development. The head of Climate Change at the UN, Christiana Figueres, has stated publicly that if the Paris Summit fails, it will take them at least 10 years to regather momentum to get back to the place they are now. Do you want to help scuttle the Paris Summit? Tell everyone you know that Climate Change dogma is a bold-faced lie and a scam of global proportions."
