Donald Rapp, Former Full Professor of Physics and Environmental Engineering: The climate of the 19th century wasn’t all that great. It was particularly cold in mid-northern latitudes. Climates always change regardless of human activity. The earth has warmed in the past 120 years, mostly at high northern latitudes; far less in the tropics or southern hemisphere. In many ways, the climate today is “better” than it was in 1850.

It matters not that the predicted Climate Change calamities are not happening. There has been no warming in 19 years, no category 3-5 hurricanes making US landfall for a record 9-1/2 years, indeed none of the over-hyped climate disasters occurring in the real world..In fact, poor nations support the treaty mostly because it promises some $100 billion per year in adaptation, mitigation and compensation money from Formerly Rich Countries that have shackled their own job creation, economic growth and living standards in the name of stabilizing Earth’s perpetually fluctuating climate.
