On January 20, 2021, the first day of his presidency, President Biden signed an executive order indicating acceptance by the United States of the Paris Agreement, also known as the Paris Accord and the Paris Climate Agreement:
ACCEPTANCE ON BEHALF OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, having seen and considered the Paris Agreement, done at Paris on December 12, 2015, do hereby accept the said Agreement and every article and clause thereof on behalf of the United States of America.
Done at Washington this 20th day of January, 2021.
JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
This resumes our participation in this agreement, to which President Obama had agreed and from which President Trump had withdrawn. If the Earth could breathe, it would be breathing a long sigh of relief. It was like getting another stay of execution, or even a pardon, if this action and other policies by President Biden and progressive Democrats finally succeed in bringing an end to climate change.
Note how our President specified his acceptance of every article and clause of the agreement. He obviously could not have read and digested the agreement that day. This gives us a hint as to why he spent so much time in his basement during the presidential campaign while his opponent was doing 2-3 rallies a day. He was researching and composing executive orders!
President Joe Biden is the kind of new-normal leadership we need to guide us into the Great Reset.
Paris Climate Agreement – a climate change agreement between 190 nations initiated in 2015.
Also called the Paris Agreement, Paris Accord, and the Accord de Paris, the Paris Climate Agreement was initiated by consensus in 2015, ratified by 190 virtue-signaling national signatories (out of 197), and scheduled to be in full effect by 2020. Called an “executive agreement” rather than a treaty, it derives its authority from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), a treaty in effect since 1992. The United States entered under President Obama, left under Trump, and re-entered the agreement under Biden.
The Paris Agreement deals with climate change by restricting greenhouse gases and fossil fuel consumption in industrialized nations. It set a specific limit for global warming of less than 2 °C (preferably 1.5°C) above the pre-industrialization average global temperature levels, using the earliest recorded levels in 1880 as the baseline.
The selection of the 1880 baseline is challenged by the fact that pre-industrialization temperature levels are not only unknown but had wide fluctuations during ice ages and warm periods, and the selection of 1880 as pre-industrial was a convenient but disputable choice. The world in 1880 was hardly pre-industrial. It was a full century after the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, a century when anti-pollution measures were unheard-of, so the planet would have had around a hundred years of carbon-fueled prewarming at the time of its arbitrary “pre-industrial” temperature.
Despite these flaws, the signatories agreed that in 2018, each country will set its own carbon reduction goals, to be called Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), and increase their NDCs every five years thereafter. There are no enforcement mechanisms or penalties other than “reduced standing” of the delinquent nations in the international community.
Annual financing of $100 billion a year until 2025 would be obtained from developed countries and transferred to undeveloped countries, specifically Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and African States, to help them adapt to climate change and mitigate the effects thereof. The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was established by the UNFCCC for that specific purpose. It ostensibly advances the Marxian principle of wealth redistribution from each according to their ability to each according to their need—or more specifically in this case, from the taxpayers of rich countries to the poor people of poor countries.
However, most of the transferred funds will be in the form of loans. The GCF engages with the private sector to offer “a wide range of financial products including grants, concessional loans, subordinated debt, equity, and guarantees.” Whether grants or loans, this kind of arrangement assures that the greatest benefit will be in transfer fees and interest to the banks and hedge funds transferring or loaning the funds, and the services of the local oligarchs and politicians facilitating the transfers at the receiving end.
New normal – a catchy phrase used to describe the societal and economic changes that remain after an economic, sociopolitical, or natural crisis.
This term has been used to describe the changes in individual privacy and freedom following the events of September 11, 2001; the lasting economic changes following the financial crisis of 2008 and the global recession which followed; and now the changes following the coronavirus pandemic of 2019-21 and the socially engineered civil unrest featuring Black Lives Matter (BLM) and antifa.
At the time of this writing, many of the excessive measures to control a viral “pandemic” and the financial consequences have become the new normal. On a personal level, they include but are not limited to social distancing, self-isolation, use of hand sanitizers, hand washing, the wearing of face masks, small-business closures, unemployment, restricted travel, working at home, online schooling, and income subsidies. Many of these measures are enforced at the municipal, county, and state levels, with penalties for violations. The only exemptions are those granted to members of Black Lives Matter and antifa for the essential political activity of participating in mass protests against white supremacism, systemic racism, and fascism.
The global elites are planning to incorporate all the changes triggered by Covid-19 and BLM into another new normal, a Fourth Industrial Revolution featuring an ambitious Great Reset of the entire world social-economical-political system, which will fulfill everyone’s wish for sustainability, social justice, and world governance.
