Today, President Biden will meet virtually with adversaries like China’s Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin and dozens of other nations’ leaders. The ostensible purpose will be to demonstrate international resolve to address so-called “climate change.”
In practice, this meeting will, like previous ones, feature U.S. commitments to dismantle our energy sector so as to reduce the use of fossil fuels and carbon emissions – fundamentally transforming America, to China and Russia’s benefit, with negligible impact on overwhelmingly naturally induced changes in temperatures.
Other summiteers will surely pledge to make similar adjustments. But China, the world’s worst polluter with still-growing numbers of dirty, coal-fired power plants under construction, will make empty promises and insist on being compensated for doing anything.
Whatever one thinks of the reality of climate change, its champions are zealously undermining American interests and sticking us with the tab.
