Seth Meyers takes a closer look at the recent agreement from the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris. On Saturday, leaders from 195 countries agreed to make an effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions to a sustainable level. There have been similar agreements in the past, but the main difference between this conference and the failed one in 2009 is that six years ago China did not see climate change as a problem, “and now, China can’t see anything, because they live inside the belly of the smoke monster on Lost.” The greatest flaw in the plan is that it is essentially voluntary. If it were legally binding, it would have to go to a vote in Congress, and the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works is Jim Inhofe, who “disproved” climate change by bringing a snowball to the Senate floor. Watch the video to see how Meyers reacts to critics of Obama’s involvement with the summit.
