We are breaking the Paris Agreement

Taking over farmland to build facilities to produce intermittent energy is a violation of Article 2(b) of the Paris Agreement.

Article 2 of the 2015 Paris Agreement states:

“This Agreement… aims to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, in the context of sustainable development and efforts to eradicate poverty, including by:

“(b) Increasing the ability to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change and foster climate resilience and low greenhouse gas emissions development, in a manner that does not threaten food production”;

Bill Stinson of the Energy Realists has pointed out the critical final clause in 2(b). In a manner that does not threaten food production!

Clearly every encroachment on farmland violates that clause.

And intermittent energy is not sustainable anyway, so why would we spend billions of dollars to get more expensive and less reliable energy from facilities with a massive environmental footprint?

Is the Paris agreement the one that the federal government uses to pass laws on climate change re the external affairs power?

Wait until the lawyers get involved.

India, Russia and rejects the Stupid Paris Agreement.

Then what for stupid Australia under Bowen???
