    You keep writing these stories about how those of us that are skeptical about CAGW theory are winning. A few more such victories and we will be undone. Obama has committed to reducing our CO2 emissions by some 30 percent and the Chinese has committed to absolutely nothing they weren’t going to do already. And even that is optional: The Chinese expressed nothing more than “intentions.” If those intentions turn out to be inconvenient they will just ignore them and what will we do then?

    Meanwhile, back home, the EPA will make these reductions real, if not more. If a Republican president tries to prevent them the greens will take the EPA to court, and they will win. If the Republicans ever control both houses of congress and the presidency simultaneously, then they could amend the CAA. Short of that this is going to happen and worse besides.

    How the Chinese must be laughing at their good luck.

    This deal cost China nothing, and gave Obama the appearance of a success, which China no doubt hopes will result in the US damaging its own economy with regulations on carbon dioxide emissions. “Global Warming” will become known in the future as the Greatest Hoax in history. As I write this November cold records are being smashed throughout the Rocky Mountain region, if only we had some “Global Warming”.

      Ditto in Tennessee; the former home of Al Gore.
