New estimates show the federal government will spend nearly twice as much fighting global warming this year than on U.S. border security.
The White House reported to House Republicans that there are 18 federal agencies engaged in global warming activities in 2013, funding a wide range of programs, including scientific research, international climate assistance, incentivizing renewable energy technology and subsidies to renewable energy producers. Global warming spending is estimated to cost $22.2 billion this year, and $21.4 billion next year.
At the same time, the federal government will spend nearly $12 billion on customs and border enforcement this year.

Geez. Anybody see a problem or have an issue with this? How about we place some low swinging wind mills all along the border. Maybe take out some trespassers and generate a little power at the same time. Very little power. Never mind. The windmills would end up disappearing and sold to scrap dealers. Of course the ecowackos would demand they be replaced and we'd pay for them. Again.
