Rick Perry Will Attend A Summit Meant To Further The Goals Of The Paris Climate Agreement

Michael Bastasch

Energy Secretary Rick Perry will head to Asia to meet with partners of an international agreement created by the Obama administration and other countries to help meet the goals laid out in the Paris climate agreement. Perry will travel to Japan to visit the site of the Fukushima nuclear power plant that was hit by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Perry will head to China on Tuesday to attend, ironically enough, the second Mission Innovation Ministerial summit, Axios reported Tuesday. Mission Innovation (MI) was created by nearly two dozen countries, including the U.S., during the 2015 United Nations climate summit in Paris, France to help meet the goal of the Paris climate agreement to keep future global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. The U.S.’s MI narrative page reads: “if the longer-term goal of the recent and historic Paris Agreement (2015) is to be realized, that is, to stay ‘well below 2 degrees C’, it will require a sustained strategy of ‘deep decarbonization’ across all aspects of energy production, transformation and use.”...more

What happens to these people when they get to D.C.?
