Not surprising, it looks like Obama & Co. is trying their best to circumvent Congress yet again.
This time its about some kind of backroom deal concerning carbon and climate change.
Apparently some kind of "negotiations" are being brokered for a deal next year that involves a "Treaty".
Involved are the big "economies" around the world.
Hmmm. Why not just "come clean" ??
As we already know, the Administration is ready to get some pretty hard deals "booked" involving the U.S. States to "get cleaner", especially the
electric power generators.
Sounds like they're real "Serious" about climate change.
Obama Pursuing Climate Accord in Lieu of
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their
planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress.
In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from
other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the
Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.
To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name
and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor
countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path.
