A climate fairy tale

“Let the Paris climate deal die. It was never good for anything, anyway” by Bruce Pardy,   Professor of Law at Queen’s University, in Canada’s Financial Post. This column is based upon an article forthcoming in the Journal of Environmental Law and Practice.

“Paris is a climate fairy tale. It has always been more about money and politics than the environment. If human action is not causing the climate to change, Paris is irrelevant. If it is, then Paris is an obstacle to actual solutions. If there is a crisis, it will be solved when someone develops a low-carbon energy source as useful and cheap as fossil fuels. A transition will then occur without government interventions and international declarations. Until then, Paris will fix nothing. It serves interests that have little to do with atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. Will America’s repudiation result in its eventual demise? One can hope.” –Bruce Pardy, Canada’s Financial Post, 18 May 2018
