Turkey Reconsiders Paris Climate Agreement

Why? They want all that sweet, sweet, climate cash redistributed from rich nations (via The Last Refuge)

(Reuters)  The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal because the U.S. move jeopardizes compensation promised to developing countries, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.

Erdogan was speaking at the G20 summit in Germany where leaders from the world’s leading economies broke with U.S. President Donald Trump over climate policy, following his announcement last month that he was withdrawing from the accord.

Erdogan said that when Turkey signed the accord France had promised that Turkey would be eligible for compensation for some of the financial costs of compliance.

“So we said if this would happen, the agreement would pass through parliament. But otherwise it won’t pass,” Erdogan told a news conference, adding that parliament had not yet approved it.

“Therefore, after this step taken by the United States, our position steers a course towards not passing this from the parliament,” he said.

It’s doubtful that this will cause any sort of domino effect, as there are still plenty of 1st World Nations which are staying in the Paris agreement who will give their own taxpayer money to 3rd world nations, rather than using it for their own citizens. And 3rd world and smaller nations certainly want lost of that sweet, sweet climate cash.

    So it’s “pay us our bribe money” or we will destroy the world, boil the oceans, overflow the seas…sounds like blackmail to me.

    LOL. Maybe they just noticed that July just had the lowest temperature ever measured for the northern hemisphere and realized the warmists were just nuts.

    ’twas nice of the Turks to admit that this was all just a scam to move money from higher producing nations to lower producing ones.

    This is what Jeffrey and the left simply don’t get: working Americans don’t want to pay more in taxes just to send them to other countries, no more than they want to be taxed to support people who will not work.

    Not a single word of outrage from environmentalist wackos about Turkey killing the planet, going it alone, speeding up the end of the world, bla, blah, blah…

      No. We don’t hear them complain about the toxic environmental disasters perpetrated by by the communist, post-communist, and socialist countries. It’s either the soft-bigotry of low expectations, or they won’t criticize anything on the far left.
