    Question from down under – Does congress have to affirm the climate change agreement for the US to be a signatory of same?

      Think I found the answer at LGF – Should have realised PBO would sort it 🙂

      ” Some elements of the accord are voluntary, while others are legally binding. That hybrid structure was specifically intended to ensure the support of the United States: An accord with binding targets would be legally interpreted as a new treaty and would have to go before the Senate for ratification. Such a plan would be dead on arrival in the Republican-controlled Senate, where many question the established science of climate change and hope to thwart Mr. Obama’s climate change agenda.

      As a result, all language on the reduction of carbon emissions is essentially voluntary. The deal assigns no concrete reduction targets to any country. Instead, each government has crafted a plan to lower emissions at home based on the country’s domestic politics and economy.” from NYT via this comment

      And that, in a nutshell, AMK, is why the US media is a joke. They are propagandists, not news providers.

      Bernie Sanders simply doesn’t know when to be gracious or how to be respectful of others, which in and of itself disqualifies him for the presidency. He could not accomplish one millionth of what President Obama has done and only knows how to carp and minimize the work of others. He’s an irritating, petulant curmudgeon.

    Congrats jazz!!!

    Thank you, NW, for a special post on what is without question an unprecedented day in the history of humanity.

    Never before have humans been participants and witness to the scale of awareness and cooperation evidenced in the adoption of the Paris Agreement.

    Oh, and then there’s this ….


    good night TOD …………

    Thanks Nerdy for this great post! Bravo to PBO and SOS Kerry, who has been a tireless and humble public servant on issues that MATTER. Congrats to all the countries, the leaders of which came together to pursue this common goal for the good of the planet.

    At 74 years old, Bernie Sanders is still stuck in his twenties, emotionally and politically. Not at all presidential. Not ready to be President now, or ever.

    heard on NPR this evening that there is a meeting in progress whose goal is to bring Libya’s warring factions together and help them push out ISIL;

    I think (could be wrong) that it is happening in Rome;

    since the US is in leadership of this, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if after the exceptionally heavy duties in Paris, SoS is heading straight to Rome to participate in that too, before coming home for the holiday;

    as I said earlier, he would be quietly moving on to the next crisis without too much fanfare;

    yes, I do love and admire SoS Kerry. I also was lucky to campaign for him as Dem candidate in our ultimate swing state and meet him on number of rallies

    Thank you, Nerdy, for providing this incredible response to this historic day. It’s overwhelming to recognize all the work that goes into each of these achievements and how hard PBO works to achieve our dreams. Thank you.

    Thank you, Nerdy for this celebratory collection.

    President Obama is a great World Leader. PBO and SOS Kerry along with their teams did what up to now has seemed impossible. This is what a Strong leader looks like and what such a President can achieve.

    Of course, word of this will not penetrate the thick skulls of the brainwashed sad sacks who cheer on Trump, or Cruz or Sanders.

      We can’t rely on the media, Vicki. These accomplishments will be part of the President’s final State of the Union address, which will be heart by millions. And then it’s up to us to spread the word, house by house, person to person.

    I have to say that I chocked up when PBO talked about holding the hands of his grandchildren (if he was lucky enough to have them) in the park. How I wish this joy to happen for him.

    Some good news, FLOTUS will invite military kids to the White House to watch the new Star Wars movie Friday Dec. 18.

    For the record, if George W. Bush were still in the White House and I were a big HRC fan, this would be a good campaign ad.

    • December 12, 2015 at 11:37 pm

      Girl, please…….Bye!
      You better hope Joe Biden does not have a change of heart.
      And damn glad FLOTUS is not interested.

        I think it was a Hillarybot – not HRC – who put that out there, but I laughed at your comment, anyway!

          Hey Jackie!
          I figured as much that was the case. But I am not going to give them the pleasure of thinking that I am all in with her or them.
          I am anticipating Billary to fuck it up real soon.
          I am uncomfortable even seeing him standing the door of the WH never mind the Oval Office.
          Why would he even want to come back? Why? What are his motives?
          Can you even imagine if the same scenario with POB?

            I gotcha. There’s no comparison between the two couples AT ALL, in my mind, much less the former and current President. We shall just wait and see what happens. Seems a bit surreal to me, so I’m going back to really appreciating this next year.

    • December 12, 2015 at 11:44 pm

      I won’t panic, President Obama is still in the White House.

    Thanks, Nerdy, for the great collection of tweets and video from today’s highlights of the Paris Climate Agreement. There’s no where else where we get such complete coverage of President Obama, his family and his administration. I’m so grateful for all of you here at The Obama Diary.

    Good Night!
