SabiNaNgani: Putin on Paris climate change agreement: ‘Don’t worry, be happy’

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for calm in the wake of Donald Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement, joking that any bad weather encountered around the globe could now be blamed on ‘American imperialism’.

Speaking at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), the Russian president said the panic surrounding Trump’s decision has been blown way out of proportion, noting that there is still time before the agreement, which was signed in 2015, goes into effect.

"Don't worry, be happy," Putin said in English. 

“This agreement [the Paris Agreement on climate change] has not yet even come in effect. It will come into effect in 2021. So we still have time. If we all work constructively, we can agree on something,” he said. 

“The United States has ratified [this agreement], as I recall, but we [Russia] have not yet,” he added. “We haven’t done this because we want to wait until when the rules of allocation of resources, and other technical – but important – issues, are ironed out.”

The Paris accords were worked out in 2015 to replace the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gas emissions. Russia is one of its 195 signatories, but has yet to ratify the document.

“It’s about preventing temperature changes of two degrees,” he reminded the audience, noting that “we here [at the forum] somehow do not yet feel that the temperature is rising.”

“By the way, we should be grateful to President Trump. In Moscow it’s raining and cold and even, they say, some snow. Now we could blame this all on American imperialism, that it’s all their fault. But we won’t.”

On Thursday, Donald Trump announced he was taking the US out of the Paris Agreement, which it had entered in 2015 under Barack Obama. Trump, a climate change skeptic, called the deal “unfair” to the United States, which is second only to China as the world’s greatest greenhouse gas emitter. 

The decision was met with criticism from many world leaders, with French President Emmanuel Macron saying in a televised statement that “there is no Plan B” on climate because “there is no Planet B”. - RT

Marinduque Rising post May 10, 2015

Am just reminded of an article I wrote two years ago (May 10, 2015), that I am reposting below about the 'climate change hoax'.

But first, let's have a look on how the Arctic Ice looks today after Al Gore said back in 2007 that the Arctic Sea Ice was supposed to 'completely disappear by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.'


Recent Canadian Ice Service May 16-22 2017 data shows Greenland ice nearing a  record high as Arctic sea ice extends over 800,000 square miles past its 2016 levels.


Arctic Sea Ice extent is 800,000 km2 higher than it was in 2016.

Climate Change Hoax - and we Filipinos were also fooled


In 2007 the Nobel Peace Prize was shared, in two equal parts, between the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former US Vice President Al Gore "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change".

During his Dec. 10, 2007 acceptance speech, Gore proclaimed that the Arctic's summer ice could completely disappear by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions. He said, thus: 

"Last September 21 (2007), as the Northern Hemisphere tilted away from the sun, scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words, 'falling off a cliff.' One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week warns that it could happen in as little as seven years. Seven years from now." (Watch Nobel Prize video from 1:28:40)


Gore and IPCC sharing the Nobel in 2007.
He also warned that rising temperatures were “a planetary emergency and a threat to the survival of our civilization.”


 The opposite came

But his "ice-free by 2013" speech was already proven off - by 920,000 square miles.

Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite “realistic” predictions by climate scientists as mentioned, that the North Pole would be completely melted by then.

Instead of shrinking, the NASA photographs clearly show that the Arctic ice sheet is much larger than it was. The thick layer of summer ice, which currently stretches from Canada to Russia, is preventing ships from using the North-West Passage.

Then last year, ice concentrations on the South pole are at record levels. Which is apparently why "global warming" became "climate change" when they figured out that the false claims would not occur.

Clearer today

As of today, the South Pole icepack concentrations are rapidly growing to record levels in what will probably now trigger new discussion on "global cooling" or even the coming of a "mini-ice age". Of course that's still consistent with the euphemism known as "climate change" which is confusing as climate is always changing, but certainly millions of miles away from "global warming".
