Posted on 06/23/2012 4:41:25 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday announced a $20 million partnership between the United States and African nations to boost clean energy projects.
The aid money is part of the United States' contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which was launched last year. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon announced during this week's Rio+20 U.N. summit on sustainable development that 50 countries have pledged $50 billion to the effort, which aims to double the share of global renewable energy by 2030.
This initiative is already mobilizing significant action from all sectors of society, Ban said at the summit, according to Reuters. Working together, we can provide solutions that drive economic growth, expand equity and reduce the risks of climate change.

I think Hillary is setting herself up to run for something.
$20 million?,Why not $20 trillion,doesn’t she care about Africa?
Hope it works out for the African ‘people’ and not the skimmers in between.
It didn’t work for us tho.
Could become like the now bankrupt companies that made millions
off the taxpayers only to donate it back to the left.
So who are we borrowing THAT money from?
Any African nations?
Clean energy....the dirtiest scam around.
Why don’t we help South Africa build some clean NUCLEAR ENERGY plants?
I wonder what?
The Obama administration has squandered billions that we don’t have on “clean energy” BS which produces nothing. When you think about it, $20 million on “clean energy” BS is a bargain.
Why can’t rich politicians just invest their own money?
So? Just ad it to the list!
The average American hasnt a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while he plans to slash the military, threatens to cut medicare and withold seniors social security checks!
BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!
Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.

of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
And THATS just the tip of the iceberg.
THIS will blow your mind!!
They should have 2010 up, but they dont. Thats where youll find Obamas largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.
What they need is clean water and food.
We can only hope she just runs away.
Mass starvation, tin pot dictators, annual incomes of under $100 per year...and we want to give them windmills. Are we grand?
Compare this to Bush’s effort to stem the AIDS epidemic in Africa.
why don’t we just wire them the money? it ain’t worth anything anyway LOL!
Don’t they need potable water first?
Pretty soon I can send Africans emails telling them that my rich uncle Ralph died and I need a place to put his 30million dollars.
How about we give them nothing, and they do something for themselves for once.
So she went to Congress and they gave her 20 million dollars?
Congress does hold the purse strings right?
Double it? What a wonderful idea. No one else can make it cost effective so let's give money to Africa and see if they can do better. /s
How about food you idiot!!! Clean energy? What a buffoon!! They don’t need clean energy to power nothing they have. Food and housing after the military and government scrape off their fees.
Great Guns!! let them clean up their countries first! I wonder how much Odinga got.
What's $20 million compared to $5 Trillion anyway?
And who approved this 20M ?
Damn this administration to hell.
Agree. Oh, I want clean energy. Well, why the hell do I want it? I heard it was better from my teachers. Did you ask them how much more it would cost? Uh, NO. I just thought clean sounded better then dirty.
$20 million, isn’t that about 20 wind mills?
Given DumBO’s administrations propensity for green jobs, going out and collecting gnu pies to burn would be green energy jobs.
DEFUND UNaccountable bureaucracies/socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
See some of the damage they have caused...here...
Go ahead...pick some to DEFUND...any 100-1000 would be a good start.
DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic.
live - free - republic
OUTSTANDING post/links! BTTT!
Hate to show my stupidy, but what does BTTT mean? LOL
Bump To The Top
It’s when you don’t have a comment but you want the thread to show up in the latest comments so others will read it.
Okay, but in a partnership there is bilateral benefit and enrichment.
What are we getting in return?
All I see is that we give money and they take it.
What fund is she pulling this from? CUT HER OFF!
