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.
Obamas climate agenda has attracted criticism from congressional Republicans who have been hammering the administration over the accountability and transparency of its global warming efforts.
Republicans on the Energy and Commerce Committee have been calling on the heads of major federal agencies to testify on global warming activities. So far, only the heads of the Energy Department and the Environmental Protection Agency have opted to testify in front of the House.
With billions of dollars currently being spent annually on climate change activities, Congress and the public should understand the scope of what the federal government is doing, how the billions of dollars are being spent, and what it will accomplish, said Kentucky Republican Rep. Ed Whitfield. Anyone who believes the committee ought to be focusing its attention on climate change related issues should be standing with us to get these answers.
Earlier this summer, the Senate held a hearing to highlight the immediate impacts of global warming. However, Senate Republicans released a report ahead of the hearing that rejected many of the claims made by scientists, politicians and activists about rising global temperatures.

WTF? Are they cloning and distributing Karl Rove's hurricane machine?
And that is why it can’t end.
Wow - it must have worked, since we haven’t had any Global Warming since 1998. What can’t the government do?
Government and unfettered addiction to looting illegal immigration are the biggest poluters but figure not on such agenda.
Global warming will turn out to be yet another foreign invasion scheme.
Taxes and regulations for pure nonsense, such as the AGW hoax, and hardly anything for one of our biggest problems, job stealers streaming over the border when unemployment is unmanageable.
The scientists likely all know it's a scam now. It's now a matter of contractors keeping up their lies so they can still have access to the taxpayer gravy train.
This has NOTHING to do with science.
