    Scott Pruitt’s foot stays firmly planted in mouth; EPA chief doesn’t know India and China signed Paris Climate Agreement

    [​IMG]

    Just a few days ago we reported on the significant economic benefits the world will gain from the completion of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Agreement, decided upon in 2015 and gradually signed and put into effect over the course of the last year, is a really big deal. It could have been better, with more firm goals and specific milestones, but it’s a first in that it has been signed by 192 countries representing 99.21% of global CO2 emissions, pledging to keep global warming “well below 2ºC.” The signatories to the Agreement include, most importantly, the world’s three largest emitters: the US, China, and India.

    But yesterday on “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos, EPA-chief-and-oil-industry-talking-point-spouting-robot Scott Pruitt claimed that the Paris Agreement is a “bad deal” and that “China and India, the largest producers of [carbon dioxide] internationally, got away scot-free.”

    The problem with that last statement is that, like much of what Pruitt says, it is demonstrably false. And the person whose job it is to administer and implement these agreements ought to know it.
