Turkey Threatens Not To Ratify Paris Climate Accord

Turkey show that the Paris Agreement never was about anything else than money, as GWPF report:

Turkey Threatens Not To Ratify Paris Climate Accord

HAMBURG: Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened Saturday that his country would not ratify the Paris climate accord, speaking at the end of the G20 summit in Germany.

“After that step taken by America, the position that we adopt is in the direction of not passing it in parliament,” Erdogan said at a press conference in Hamburg.

The summit of the world’s biggest industrialised and developing economies agreed that 19 of its members would stick with the 2015 plan to fight global warming and “took note” of US President Donald Trump’s pullout from the initiative.

But shortly after the mega-summit ended, Erdogan, who met Trump at the event, told a news conference that Turkey was no longer a certain candidate and suggested other members of the “G19” also had doubts.

He said he had clearly told French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel: “No offence, but we will not pass it in our parliament as long as the promises made to us are not delivered”.

He said former French president Francois Hollande had promised him that Turkey would be classed as a developing and not an industrialised economy — meaning Ankara would receive money from a global climate fund rather than have to pay into it.

He also suggested some other, unidentified, countries had a “problem” with the agreement and said “they are not renewing their full support”.

    So Erdogan outed the real truth behind the Paris Discord…. as long as Turkey is listed as a developing nation and receives money they’re in. As well as 190+ other nations. It irks me every time I read/hear propaganda about how many nations have signed on. Who wouldn’t sign something that promised to give them free money with no strings attached? What a farce.

    Germany represents 30% of European GDP, France 20% and the UK 20%. The remaining 30% is divided amongst the other member countries, something around 1% GDP each.

    Is it no surprise that when the UK walks away with 20% of European GDP (the UK retaining 100% of its Euro GDP) the rest get cold feet?

    Then along comes the US and Mr. Trump deprives everyone of more of their sponged income.

    How long does the Euro project have?

    Not long.

      Hopefully you’re right. It’s an exercise in One World Government based on destroying nationalism/patriotism. Nothing but a bunch of appointed Socialist/Marxist bureaucrats that believe they know better than you what you want and to control what you can get.

    So if they get money and can emit as much as they want they will agree. So would the US

    What a surprise!
    And there was me thinking that scientists and politicians were altruistic.

      Dr Roy Spencer of UAH on RSS adjustment:

      He predicts – he is as cynical about the science establishment as Richard – that the radio-sonde data will be the next to be adjusted upwards, since this data agrees with UAH more than with new RSS.

      The ONLY purpose of the adjustment by RSS was, of course, to do JUST enough to keep the lie going. After all, what, for practical men, is an extra +0.05 C per decade in the trend? Angels dancing on pin-heads stuff.

      Again, thank God for Trump’s decisiveness.

        It is exceedingly disappointing that RSS caved to green pressure, especially under President Trump’s administration. I have left emails at the WH to request he investigate these scams. Doubt it will occur though. At least not for another year or 2.

    The outcome of all this will just be less money for disaster relief and worthwhile developments, as money in that budget is transferred to “Planet Saving”, i.e. money flowing to “investors” in renewable energy.

    Erdogan? it’s his own fault really telling the world what a wonderful economically strong go ahead country is Turkiye and all that claptrap and in the same moment, he is holding out the begging bowl – pleading insanity.
    But then some or is it ‘most’ think claiming poverty and screwing the western taxpayers is just dandy!

    mother theresa thinks it’s just dandy too, like call me dave did, giving away £billions to corrupt regimes whether it be through foreign aid direct or foreign aid indirectly and via the Paris emissions stitch-up, either way mother theresa never had the British people’s interests at her heart, thus she is just as bad as the other lot on the opposing benches.

    The original article makes it seem like President Trump and Erdogan are “on the same page”. That bothers me. I think it is great that President Trump pulled out of the paris accords however he should not be linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and fanatical Islamist Erdogan.
