President Barack Obama is expected to bypass the will of the Senate in order to have America agree to the Paris climate accord.
According to the Washington Times, the president plans to promise to lower carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. as part of the U.N.'s Paris Agreement. Some critics are afraid he's exercising power that is not his, but others think Obama's move is merely a sham in order to boost his legacy among progressives at the end of his term.
Climate Depot’s Marc Morano said, “Obama will surely do his best play-acting and pretend the ‘ratification’ has actual meaning, but as a former constitutional law professor, even he knows better.”
Australian science writer Joanne Nova wrote, “What they need right now is a game-changer, and if they can’t get it then, true to form, they will manufacture the illusion of it."
