Obama admits his climate agenda won’t curb global warming -- By Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

President Barack Obama admitted in an interview with The New Yorker that his plan to lower U.S. carbon dioxide emissions by banning new coal plants would do little to curb global warming since developing countries like China and India will still use coal power.

The Obama administration published its proposed carbon dioxide emissions limits for new coal plants which would effectively ban coal power. That is, unless they use commercially unproven carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies. Tighter emission controls for coal plants are part of Obama’s plan to fight global warming.

Critics of the administration argue that banning coal plants won’t curb global warming because developing countries continue to build coal plants, frustrating U.S. efforts to lower global carbon emissions. Obama conceded that fact, but argued that limiting emissions here will only help the U.S. because other countries will come to us for the technology once we’ve developed it.
