Report: India Is The Only G20 Country To Meet Their “Historic” Paris Climate Agreement Commitments

One thing to remember: for all the talk about how super awesome the Paris climate agreement was, virtually none of the the nations who signed it are keeping their commitments. For those who made commitments. And many of the commitments weren’t considered strong enough to comply with Paris. Heck, even France is not in compliance. Climate cultists can Blame Trump and the “lack of U.S. leadership”, but, did nations really need the U.S. to practice what they preach? If China Joe does rejoin the agreement, will the nations suddenly keep their commitments? Don’t count on it

India only country among G20 nations to meet climate change mitigation commitments

India is the only country among G-20 nations that is on track to meet its climate change mitigation commitments of 2 degrees Celcius under the 2015 Paris Agreement, said a report released by a coalition of 14 global thinktanks including TERI.

The development was flagged by Climate Transparency which examined the efforts of countries to combat climate change among the G20 nations.

According to the Climate Transparency report (CT) 2020 released on Wednesday, India’s actions on climate targets set under 2015 Paris Agreement makes it compatible to achieve curbs on global warming by 2 degrees Celsius.

The climate action tracker has put China in the ‘highly sufficient category’ despite its promise to become carbon neutral by 2060, according to a report in Times of India.

The CT report said that India has promised to reduce its emissions by 33-35 per cent and take action on energy, waste, transport and other sectors.

However, the report further said that India is not on the track to achieve the Paris climate agreement’s long-term goal of 1.5 Celcius target.

“India is the only country which is on track consistent to move the world to a 2-degree Celsius warming figure, though not a 1.5-degree warming future,” the Times of India report quoted TERI Director General Ajay Mathur as saying.

Huh. How about that? Of course, India’s pledges are actually pretty weak. And to say China is in the “highly sufficient category” is a joke. Talk is cheap, and that is what both nations are mostly doing, talk, especially China. Regardless, that only one nation is considered on track for 2C shows the folly of the Paris Climate Agreement. If you pledge to reduce your fossil fuels usage in half and call that historic, but you only reduce it by 10%, is that still historic?

    They act as if each country has a single valve they can adjust to get a better result, and that the results are actually measured somewhere. These are all fantasy numbers. Except the wealth transfer from the USA. That’s real.

    That is because AGW is a CHINA HOAX perpetrated on the planet to destroy western civilization. They have infiltrated these agencies with $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ buying off every report that might cast a negative light on CHINA.

    You cant even see the fuking sky in CHINA because of the massive pollution, smog and release of greenhouse gases and yet. FUK THE USA If we all die it was Trumps fault they will shout in 2000 years.

    As I recall, no large nations met their Kyoto targets, either, so this is hardly a surprise.

    Yeah, President Trump bagged our commitment to Paris, but none of the other signatories did, and France and Germany and the United Kingdom, wealthy nations all with liberal governments and governments which favored the ridiculous agreement, didn’t meet their commitments either.

    Joe Biden, we are told, is going to reinstate our commitment to the Paris agreement, but that’s nothing more than virtue signaling. The US won’t meet it’s commitments any more than did the European nations. All re-entering the agreement can do is commit us to giving more money to what President Trump accurately described as third world [insert slang term for feces here]holes.

    Yeah, as we have millions of people unemployed thanks to the politically-incorrect-to-call-it-that China virus, we just need to send more taxpayer dollars to countries that hate us! Here’s hoping that Mitch McConnell can torpedo any such appropriations.
