Fatally Flawed Deal Faces Same Fate As Kyoto Protocol

The Global Warming Policy Forum (GWPF) regards the decision by the US administration to withdraw from the Paris climate accord as the inevitable outcome of a fatally flawed process.

GWPF director Dr Benny Peiser said:

“The Paris climate agreement was pushed through against the declared will of America’s elected representatives. US leaders and critics had warned international leaders repeatedly that the US Senate rejected Obama’s deal and that a Republican president would shred it to pieces. Now the Paris accord faces the same fate as the Kyoto Protocol which also ended in failure”.

GWPF chairman Lord Lawson said that the US decision increased pressure for the UK to do the same:

“US industry already enjoys a huge energy cost advantage over the UK and other EU countries, so the US move can only make things harder for us in Europe. The next government must take a long, hard, look at whether we can afford our own Climate Change Act any longer. It is clear that the costs imposed on British businesses and households are now entirely unsustainable.”
