Posted on 02/16/2012 9:48:05 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
WASHINGTON Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced Thursday the formation of a new global coalition to fight emissions other than carbon dioxide that contribute to climate change.
The coalitionwhich includes Sweden, Mexico, Canada, Bangladesh and the U.S. will be funded with $15 million, mostly from the U.S. It hasn't yet determined which actions it will take to reduce the emissions, nor has it identified specific reduction targets.
The administration is also putting up federal dollars for clean-energy investments, unveiling a 2013 budget plan this week that sets aside hundreds of millions of dollars for wind, solar and other clean-energy projects.
The coalition announced Thursday will target emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas that is far more potent than carbon dioxide, as well as soot and hydrofluorocarbons. Together, these emissions account for more than a third of current global-warming developments, a senior administration official said.
The coalition's focus on so-called short-lived pollutants won't replace efforts to slash carbon emissions, for which "the world has not yet done enough," Ms. Clinton said. It aims instead to complement those efforts.

We haven’t won by a long shot. The battlefield has simply moved.
OK, we don't know if there is Climate Change, we don't know what emmissions we are going to target (but we aren't going after CO2) - and we have $15 Million of the taxpayer's dollars behind us.
So, let's hoot a lot and jump around in a circle, then demand more money.
Why form a coalition? Just take the 15M. Who’s going to stop you?
Fifteen million will only begin to buy first class jet travel, 5 star hotels and lavish meals for this so-called “commission” to go globe trotting and tell the Bengalis they need to purchase methane emission credits with borrowed western money, to grow rice.
When I see stuff like this from an pompous incompetent pantsuit named Hillary Clinton, I don’t have to wonder where the smell of methane (ie, bovine excrement) is coming from.
May the farce be with them.
Global Warming is a GIL retirement product for politicians and social engineers around the world. (GIL=Guaranteed Income for Life)
Let's all make a living by declaring that the earth and sun's natural algorythm of changing weather patterns is something we must overcome..........And they thought the Druids were moonbats?
Wonder what out of work Americans think about the Govt. using 15 million to create about the 10,000th commission to study global warming. This is pure graft and pork, nothing else.
Typical and typically led by Ms. Clinton who along with Algore tried to bleed the congress when she was married to what'shisname.

She can start by limiting the bilious gaseous emissions escaping from her noxious pie hole.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
In other words, they don't know jack s**t about what they're trying to do or how to do it......so let's just toss $15M of US taxpayer dollars at it for the hell of it.
God forgive me for the thoughts I have.....
More proof that our government does what it wants to, when it wants to. Doesn’t matter if we want it or need it.
Neither must we.

Bovine butt-plugs. Go Hillary!
Please wait .Windows is performing a sanity check
INSANITY --- The pathology of trying the same misguided failed policies over and over again, and expecting different results.
Synonym --- Totalitarianism.
More prostitutes for Bill.
Wonder how his son in Australia is doing?
Isn’t it about time to repost the Life and times of Maurice Strong? The inventor and promoter of Global Warming/Cooling/Climate Change/CO2/Oxygen/Nitrogen/Hydrogen and CO2 hater?
