John Kerry: ‘There would have been no Paris Accord if there had been penalties


We hear the sky is falling now that Trump refuses to redistribute our wealth to the rest of the world via the Paris Accord. But you know the drill. John Kerry, the master negotiator that he is, rises up in his righteous anger yesterday. Let’s just look how his mind worked when we first heard his words of wisdom on the agreement when it was first approved. I am sure “Public Shaming” would have really done the trick in compliance. It’s working great for his Iran deal he negotiated.

“So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

On December 14, 2015 I posted this and see if you can follow his logic.

Here Kerry opines on two insights on the Global Warming “agreement.”Kerry: Public Shaming is ‘Most Powerful Weapon in Many Ways’ to Enforce World Climate Agreement. The other astute observation?

While discussing the global climate change agreement made in Paris over the weekend, Secretary of State John Kerry acknowledged on Fox News Sunday that there wouldn’t been an agreement at all if there were binding penalties for countries not meeting emissions standards.

President Obama, Kerry said, was determined to “get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” As such, Kerry said that the “best thing we can do” to get countries to reduce their carbon emissions was a “mandatory reporting requirement.”

In a bit of circular logic, Kerry said that countries would have to retool their reduction levels every five years to meet their commitments, but he couldn’t say there was anything beyond their own word to force them to so.

“The best thing we can do in an effort to try to change people’s thinking is to do this mandatory reporting requirement,” Kerry said. “The mandatory reporting requirement has to be updated every five years. Every five years, it is mandatory that countries retool their reduction levels in order to meet the demands of meeting the curve of reduction to which they have committed. So that is a serious form of enforcement, if you will, compliance. But there is no penalty for it, obviously, but if there had been a penalty, we wouldn’t have been able to get an agreement.”

    Without penalties the agreement is worthless unless of course the goal of the treaty was to redistribute US money to foreign nations in a global redistribution of wealth…

    According to my understanding of what President Trump said yesterday

    The US would be under agreement to cut emissions and eventually do away completely with the coal industry

    But China and India could double theirs under the same agreement

      I think you cut to the chase. Meanwhile we have already given One Billion Smackeroos to the so called “Green Fund” who whereabouts as to the disposition of said funds has yet to be determined.

    It’s quite amusing to watch the Left’s meltdown right now. This bit of circular logic outlined in the blog post is something they are avoiding — deliberately or otherwise.

      This just may have pushed them over the edge, not that they needed much.. I have yet to have a rational discussion with one of them. They are clueless as to what this is all about.

    No penalty? The biggest penalty I see here is The previous POTUS and we’ll be paying the price far beyond my lifetime.. [Kerry? No comment! I am thinking in.terms of the “Yes We Canners from 2008] Oh and the quote: .“get an agreement that would move the world in the right direction.” Spinning backwards? … mandatory reporting of emissions? Half the third world probably doesn’t even know what that means even if someone were to explain it in their own language.

    Got me going again. You’re good at that. lol
