The Obama administration has vowed to sign a United Nations global warming deal in April despite intense opposition from the Senate and a Supreme Court ruling derailing the government’s green regulatory scheme.


“We’re going to go ahead and sign the agreement this year,” Todd Stern, the U.S.’s climate envoy told reporters Tuesday, brushing aside questions about last week’s Supreme Court ruling against the Environmental Protection Agency’s key climate regulation.


“It is entirely premature, really premature to assume the Clean Power Plan will be struck down but, even if it were, come what may, we are sticking to our plan to sign, to join,” Stern said of the EPA’s rule.


Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay against the EPA’s so-called Clean Power Plan — a regulatory scheme that aims to cut power plant carbon dioxide emissions 32 percent by 2030. The court’s decision was seen as a crippling blow to President Barack Obama’s global warming agenda.
