In December, it will have been one decade since then-UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon gleefully told a group of delegates to the Copenhagen climate conference "You sealed a deal," despite the lack of a treaty or even draft text of one.
It was, author Rupert Darwall writes in Climate Change: The Facts, merely "a toothless accord which merely listened countries' voluntary pledges."
Of course, in the years since then the globalist alarmists have had some more kicks at the can. Though the elephant in the room still persists – the ignorance by Western governments to China's massive greenhouse gas emissions.
In this latest part of our audio serialization, we hear Mr. Darwall's chapter, "The search for a global climate treaty."
