Australia, New Zealand join Pacific Islands to sign Boe Declaration, global warming is ‘single greatest security threat,’ US needs to pay more

Watts With That published a guest post which displayed the authoritarian attitude over global warming in an article which began “Australia and New Zealand and the Pacific Island Nations have just tried to bully the USA on climate policy by signing the Boe Declaration, a joint declaration of the 49th Pacific Islands Forum which names climate change as the single greatest threat to the region, and specifically demands that the USA rejoin the Paris Agreement.”

From Helga Tim’s twitter: “Region of Pacific island states calls for the to be upheld, with joining despite recent political turmoil over policy:

The climate home news touts “Australia joins Pacific to declare climate ‘single greatest’ security threat” announcing that “…leaders signed the Boe Declaration, which recognised climate change as ‘the single greatest threat to the livelihoods security and wellbeing of peoples of the Pacific…'”

Got that?

Terrorism, poverty, hunger, income inequality, human rights….none of that stands up the threat of “climate change.”

From the agreement:

Leaders called on countries, particularly large emitters, to fully implement their Nationally Determined Contribution mitigation targets, including through the development and transfer of renewable energy, in line with committed timeframes. Leaders of Forum Island Countries called on the United States to return to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.

Yeah…America, you better get in the game.

Watts adds “The USA has been incredibly generous over the years with everyone who signed that declaration, but forum attendees see an opportunity to extract more cash from US taxpayers and are going for it.”
