Triad of Denial

The US teamed up with Saudi Arabia and Russia to challenge language embracing a landmark global warming report at the COP24 global climate summit in Poland this weekend.
 
The outlying countries wanted to “note” the report’s existence, rather than “welcome” the report, which warned that the world has about a decade to halt catastrophic warming. The US also confirmed its plan to leave the global emissions-reducing Paris agreement while forging ahead on an aggressive energy agenda.
 
“They want to get stuff done that can’t be undone by the next administration,” said former EPA official Bruce Buckheit. “This is their moment to keep on truckin’.”
