President Obama caught a lot of flak for going to Copenhagen to pitch Chicago as the site for the 2016 Summer Olympics. That didn’t go so well.
He returned to Copenhagen in December, and reached what many claimed to be a “meaningful agreement”, although it was non-binding.
For those of you who don’t know what non-binding means, apparently it means that no country is going to live up to what they promised in Copenhagen. NONE! But they will “take note” of it.
My favorite part of the article is the cheap shot delivered by the U.N. official directed toward President Obama:
The nations of the world, Mr. de Boer said, are counting on President Obama to follow through on the emissions-reduction pledge he made at Copenhagen, despite Congress’s reluctance to pass an ambitious climate bill. “Any self-respecting person,” he said, “would well like to deliver on what we promise.”
Any self-respecting person? OH SNAP!!!!
