Skip to comments.Inhofe: Obama funneling billions to UN for climate-change redistribution
Posted on 12/08/2012 4:16:05 PM PST by Ernest_at_the_Beach
At issue in the latest video from Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is the UNs Green Climate Fund, which aims to garner $100 billion from industrial nations ostensibly to bolster efforts to get developing nations to use renewable, non-hydrocarbon energy rather than coal and oil in their development. In practice, as we have seen at UN climate-change conferences, te fund has been treated as an entitlement and even a type of reparation by developing nations from the US and the West. Inhofe, who couldnt attend this years climate conference in Doha, which is just as well, as media around the world has described it as a farce, and a stalemate and failure. Inhofe instead put together this video, in which he claims that the Obama administration has sent billions of dollars already into the UNGCF and plans to send billions more even while the US struggles with trillion-dollar deficits:
The Tulsa World reported on Inhofes statement:
Media reports support Inhofes claim that the Green Climate Fund was a leading topic of discussion in Doha. The funds stated purpose is to provide capital and incentives for clean energy efforts in underdeveloped countries. It was agreed to in 2009 and officially launched in 2011, with a goal of raising $30 billion by this year and $100 billion a year by 2020.
How much has actually been paid into the fund, though, is unclear, and a Dec. 4 Financial Times story says the initiative may be strangled at birth by squabbling over control of how the money is spent and who qualifies as a developing nation.

In exactly one short word familiar to all: no!
“.....Obama administration has sent billions of dollars already into the UNGCF and plans to send billions more even while the US struggles with trillion-dollar deficits...”
It is my dream, my sweet, sweet dream that before I die, by whatever legal means necessary, Obama finds himself in prison.
It seems that rather than pay the fine, America has tipped the hangman.
Isn’t the House of Reps the ones who cut the checks? Stop the printing presses! NO checks to the UN...period.
Is this rip-off the result of the US Congress not passing a budget for the past three years, enabling the EPA and Zer0’s czars a free hand in choosing to spend as much and for whatever they want without oversight??
This rip-off needs to get legs, and someone to wrap up how much skim is involved!
What’s going to happen when the climate turns really cold like it has in the past? Hey, it’s going to and there is not a damn thing these idiots can do about it.
The Kenyan “won”. Americans are Fluked.
nobama and his parasite minions should be in prison...at least.
The Constitution gives the power to appropriate money to the House of Representatives. The Republicans have controlled the House since January 2011. They can cut off the flow of funds at any time. All it takes is backbone and a vote.
...he claims that the Obama administration has sent billions of dollars already into the UNGCF and plans to send billions more even while the US struggles with trillion-dollar deficits......but don't worry, Zero will make sure this is revenue-neutral by cutting US defense as well as the money we'd otherwise squander to make sure this "green" spending doesn't actually get used to fund our mass-murdering terrorist enemies.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM. UNaccountable bureaucrats are socialists at best, TOTALITARIANS at worst.
