Earth Day 2016

Marita Noon

Marita Noon, Advocate for sound energy policies and factual science, not computer models, based evaluation of CO2 from fossil fuels: On April 22, 2016 in a high-level celebration at the United Nations headquarters in New York, the Paris Climate Agreement of December, 2015 will officially be signed. Thirty days after its signing, the agreement will take effect—committing countries to establishing individual targets for emission reductions. Bureaucratically administered mandates, taxes, and special interest subsidies will drive family incomes down by thousands of dollars per year, drive up energy costs, and eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs. All of these costs would be incurred to achieve only trivial and theoretical impacts on global warming.
