UN CLIMATE TRIBUNAL STITCH-UP

The draft agreement for the upcoming UN climate summit in Paris grew again.

Here's the latest draft.

CFACT recently analyzed the text and uncovered the inclusion of an "International Tribunal of Climate Justice."  That research has been picked up and is making news, including the Drudge Report.  Drudge also carried Marc Morano's report on the popular French meteorologist who was fired for writing a book which questions the UN's climate change regime.

The UN's prior language tried to sell the tribunal by qualifying it as "non-judicial."  The latest draft removes the qualifier and concedes the obvious.

This is a climate court modeled after the UN International Court of Justice at The Hague.

The Court of Justice is established by the UN Charter, however, its decisions are subject to veto by the UN Security Council.

In the past, the U.S. has used its veto power to prevent the Court from imposing anti-American rulings.  The Court became so bad that the U.S. removed itself from the Court's permanent jurisdiction and now only comes before the Court when it opts in.

The UN climate agreement contains no such veto power or ability for nations to opt in or out of the climate tribunal's jurisdiction.

How bad an agreement will the President sign?

Would President Obama enable developing nations to pursue an anti-U.S. agenda before a UN international climate tribunal with no means of escape?
