Because they aren’t as stupid as we are

India refuses to go along with Obama’s climate deal

India has rejected pleas from the Obama administration to enter into an agreement to put a future limit on its greenhouse gas emissions in order to fight global warming.

President Barack Obama went abroad hoping to strike a climate deal with India — the world’s third-largest greenhouse-gas emitter — in order to build support for an international global warming treaty ahead of a United Nations summit later this year. But India had other ideas.

Obama wanted India to announce it would peak its greenhouse gas emissions by a certain year, mirroring a pledge China made last year to peak its emissions by 2030. But India’s government refused, not wanting to have to make a China-sized promise on climate.

So Obama has received a meaningless, unenforceable “aspirational pledge” from China and nothing from India; the two largest CO2 producers in the world,in return for committing us to savage our economy. Heck of a job, Brownie.

    And these pledges – even if secures do nothing.

    Meanwhile everyday we enact new emissions regs we pushing jobs out the door. It’s not like these goods cease manufacture, they just off shore to a place with lax rules. I’m not for rolling back the clean air and water rules we have, we just don’t need more.

    Has anyone kept a list of these Obamafails? It may be confirmation bias, but it feels like there have been an inordinate number of them.

    Btw – listen to the lyrics to Living Colour’s Cult of Personality. Right up there with his Bob the Builder ‘Yes we can,’ it’s his playbook to a T.

    Baiting the Dullard are you?

  4. No no no. You have this story all wrong. Obama didn’t go to India to strike a climate deal, That was just a ruse. He went to India to strike a deal with Michelle, because she pissed and moaned that the last time they were in the neighborhood, she missed having the all important Taj Mahal photo op. Of course, the irony is that she got so near, even had a sari (or is that sorry) prepared for the moment, and got rushed off to Saudi Arabia to pay respects to the new king. Michelle got confused when told this as she thought Barack was king, but that’s a story for another day.

  5. He did refer to himself something like 118 times in a 30 0r so minute speech.

    Talk about gas emissions.

    At least the Royals are smart enough to use the first person singular pronoun we, as in my subjects and I.
