Inhofe: Obama funneling billions to UN for climate-change redistribution
Hot Air ^ | 4:01 pm on December 8, 2012 | Ed Morrissey

At issue in the latest video from Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is the UN’s 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 couldn’t attend this year’s 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 Inhofe’s statement:

Media reports support Inhofe’s claim that the Green Climate Fund was a leading topic of discussion in Doha. The fund’s 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.”

“.....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.

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!

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.

From the first referenced URL (a farce):

"As one of Germany's top climatologists, Marotzke knows what he is talking about. He has had the computers at his institute calculate what would be necessary to comply with the 2-degree target: Worldwide CO2 emissions would have to consistently decline by 1 percent a year, starting in 2020, to end up at almost zero by the end of the century."

Idiots beget idiots.
One more example of where that paradigm holds up rather nicely.

Thanks Ernest.
...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.
