Sheesh! Talk about a completely misplaced set of priorities! In the wake of the Paris terror attacks last week in which hundreds were killed and wounded, what is now the main concern for Huffington Post reporter Daniel Marans? How the attacks will make a global climate deal more likely. In this, he sure sounds like he is as tone deaf as Brian Williams who expressed the same concern during the middle of the Paris attacks. Let us now join Marans in his complete divorce from reality:

logocop21-ppalClimate change advocates are optimistic that last Friday’s terror attacks in Paris have improved the chances of an international climate deal being agreed upon at the upcoming United Nations talks being held in the French capital in less than two weeks.

Andrew Steer, president of the World Resources Institute, said on a call with reporters on Wednesday that while there is no way to know for certain what the impact of the attacks will be on the Paris conference, the current spirit of global solidarity bodes well for cooperation.

If you expect any concern from Marans about the hundreds of victims of the Paris attacks, forget about it. He has one concern only: to push the Global Warming agenda.

Steer argued that the effect of the attacks would be “tonal.”

“It is the psychology of these heads of state,” he said. “They are going to be talking about sympathy and solidarity. It is harder for them to go on to say, ‘We are not going to do a deal.’”

Meanwhile the effect of this article is completely atonal.

Asked for comment on whether the attacks might affect the outcome of the U.N. Conference on Climate Change, or COP21, the State Department referred The Huffington Post to Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent public remarks and interviews on the Paris attacks.

The Paris conference “will be an important statement by the world that no one will interrupt the business of the global community – certainly not despicable, cowardly acts of terror,” Kerry said after meeting with French President François Hollande in Paris on Tuesday.

It sounds like Kerry is just as tone deaf as the author of this article.

Kerry will return to Paris with President Barack Obama on Nov. 30 to attend COP21, which is the 21st conference of “parties,” or countries, seeking to act on climate change. It will be held from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 in the Paris suburb of Le Bourget.

It won’t be a bit surprising if the equally tone deaf Obama gets more worked up about “climate change” than the Paris terror attacks.
