From The New York Daily News:
Just as the Copenhagen climate summit appeared to be on the verge of unraveling, the United StatesThursday announced its support of an annual $100 billion climate protection fund, the Associated Pressreports.
“The US is prepared to work with other countries toward a goal of jointly mobilizing $100 billion a year by 2020 to address the climate change needs of developing countries,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.
While she would not disclose how much the U.S. would be contribution to the climate fund, Clinton said there would be a fair amount contributed to the pot that would be made available in 2020. The finances will reportedly be raised partially by taxing aviation and shipping, as proposed by the European Union
This is the kind of irresponsible actions that boils my blood. Here it is, the United States is borrowing trillions from China to pay for all kinds of crazy foolishness and now we have damn fools like Obama and Clinton pledging untold billions to other countries based on "snake oil science". If Democrats are puzzled as to why the public is souring on their brand, they need look no further than these actions.
Did it ever occur to Obama and the Democrats to pause on climate change at least to make 1,000% sure the climate change scientist are not FOS? Did it ever occur to the Democrats that these untold billions they are pledging must be paid with interest by future generations that are too young to vote for or against their actions?
As I sit here like most Americans tightening my belt and curtailing my holiday spending, I sincerely hope that the Democrats damage their brand beyond repair, for they have really and truly earned that fate.
