The Paris climate summit is the sequel to the Copenhagen climate conference. But perhaps more dangerous, because the UN learned from past mistakes and this time it has coopted and snookered the environmentalists. They’re now cheering for an agreement that even OPEC loves.

- They ignore the extent to which pledges will not be kept.
- They count pledges like: “I’ll do something if you pay for it.”
