In Chicago, at a Climate Change Reality Leadership Training Corps, Al Gore told the crowd: “Shout at your leaders for protecting the planet by reversing the root causes of climate change.”
Gore personally trains average people to become troll-like alarmists in Chicago and Istanbul to go out into their communities and admonish elected officials to vote based on lowering carbon emissions, implementation of carbon taxes on governmental levels and forcing media to abide by the climate change agenda by inundating social networks and media outlets in the comment section to coerce the audience into believing man is solely responsible for global warming.
California Governor Jerry Brown signed a memorandum of understanding with Xie Zhenhua, lead international climate negotiator and vice chair of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) for China.
This accord establishes a promise that California and China will work together to reduce carbon emissions by developing joint-strategies and corporate ventures on clean technologies.
Brown explained: “The fact that the National Development and Reform Commission of the People’s Republic of China is entering into an agreement with one of the fifty states reflects the important position of California not only in the economy, but in science, technology and climate change initiatives. I see the partnership between China, between provinces in China, and the state of California as a catalyst and as a lever to change policies in the United States and ultimately change policies throughout the world.”
California represents the 8th largest economy in the world and China is the fastest growing economy and leading CO2 emissions producer.
Through this collaboration, scientists, academia and corporations can share intellectual concepts for reducing climate change.
Brown referred to global warming as “the greatest problem mankind has ever faced,” and hoped that California “can be the catalyst that shifts national policy and international policy.”
The California governor asserted that this agreement “doesn’t affect US policy on climate change.”
Brown explained that John Kerry, Secretary of State and President Obama have been advised of the agreement and are “all on board”.
Thomas Stocker, climate physicist for the University of Bern and head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is working with 259 scientists, some of which are members of Chinese academia who contributed to the IPCC Fifth Assessment report .
Stocker explained that economic developmental uncertainties can be correlated to man-made climate change while researchers are working to define scenarios for technological advancements that will further political agendas with regard to carbon dioxide emissions reduction.
Stocker elaborated: “For example, surprising events. Although there is intensive research in this area, it’s very difficult to make projections about such events. An example: there are parts of Antarctica which are under water and may be destabilized by increases in the ocean’s temperature and the rise in sea level. This is a physical process which we understand, but we cannot predict a precise point in time when it could happen. Another example would be the reaction of the rain forests in tropical regions. What happens if precipitation zones shift as a result of global warming? It is also extremely difficult to make predictions because we have not had a similar experience.”
Last June, President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping met to discuss combining their governmental forces against man-made global warming with the reduction of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) which are emitted from coal-burning power plants.
The Obama administration released a statement over that weekend confirmed: “The United States and China will work together and with other countries to use the expertise and institutions of the Montreal Protocol to phase down the consumption and production of hydrofluorocarbons.”
The letter stated: “Together, the United States and China account for 43% of global carbon dioxide emissions.
Cooperation with China is essential if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change. … The summit with President Xi presents an opportunity to make real progress on climate change this year. We urge you to seek Chinese support for a proposal to use the Montreal Protocol to phase-down the production and use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).”
Obama commented about the meeting with Jinping that he hoped it would become “new model of cooperation between countries based on mutual interest and mutual respect. It is in the United States’ interests that China continues on the path of success because we believe that a peaceful and stable and prosperous China is not only good for the Chinese, but also good for the world and the United States.”
