Joe Biden will demonstrate his determination to fight climate change by flying more than a dozen Cabinet members across the Atlantic next week — in several passenger jets consuming tons of fossil fuels at high altitudes.
Plus, of course, Biden’s own customized 747 Air Force One with remote-control window shades. Biden will take the four-engine goliath another 2,450 miles to Rome and back for what seems like yet another monthly G-20 meeting. And then, of course, when in Rome, the ardent abortion advocate will flaunt his Roman Catholic faith in an audience with Pope Francis, trying to snuff simmering rumors of his impending excommunication.
All this for the Democrat to show participants in the U.N.’s Climate Change Conference in Glasgow how all-in he is to save the global environment from the terrible things that other wanton humans are doing to cause and worsen global warming for their own ends. As one site called it, “a meaningless meeting of useless people.”
And, as usual, to contrast himself after the four-year presidency of you-know-who, who withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Accords of 2015 because he said they were a waste of time and crippled the U.S. economy without forcing worse polluters like China and India to do much.
These regular U.N. conferences all over the world are single-handedly responsible not only for bloated expense accounts but also for deforesting countless acres for the paper to print their reports, addendums, appendices, and reports on the reports.
