Why the Paris Accord Is Unnecessary, Irrelevant


Satellites have been continuously scanning lower tropospheric temperatures since 1979. The data from these satellites are reported each month by two independent research groups, the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) and Remote Sensing Systems (RSS).

Why the Paris Accord Is Unnecessary, Irrelevant

What the data from both UAH and RSS show is very interesting. Global climate is following a warming trend of only 0.136 degrees Celsius per decade. If one extrapolates that trajectory to a full century, it means a total temperature increase of 1.36 degrees Celsius by 2100.

That 1.36 degree is rather mild. However it’s quite noteworthy since the Paris Agreement adopted in late 2015 aims to limit global warming to under 2 degrees Celsius by 2100. Or, if possible, the agreement hopes to limit warming even further — to an even stricter 1.5-degree maximum increase.

The satellite data have some very weighty implications, then, since they mean that the industrialized nations of the world could do absolutely nothing in terms of reducing fossil fuel use, yet they’d still meet the full goals of the Paris accord.

Significantly, climate models are now diverging further and further from actual, observed temperatures. But despite such ongoing failures, alarmists are doubling down on the Paris accord and claiming that fossil fuel restrictions should be implemented now, immediately - even though the real-world impact would be to drastically curtail human flourishing.

Actually, if fully implemented, the Paris accord would represent a grievous change in living standards for much of the world’s population. Andso, a serious rethink is in order, particularly given the flawed theory on which the Paris Agreement is based.
