House Republicans Seek to Remove U.S. Funding for UN Climate Efforts

Elections have consequences. The Republican controlled house is targeting the funds for the IPCC and UNFCCC, two programs designed to educate policy makers about climate science and the need slow global warming world wide.

WASHINGTON—House Republicans are applying a search and destroy tactic to international funding for global warming this budget season. It goes like this: Ax any line items with the words “climate change.”

 Their primary targets are a pair of crucial United Nations initiatives designed to slow warming worldwide and educate policymakers about the evolving science of climate change.

On the chopping block for 2012 are millions in funding for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world’s leading scientific advisory body on global warming. (More here.)

The Republican controlled house, supported by a strong Tea Party Caucus, are the climate realists. They recognize that the UN IPCC science is tainted by fraud and bias, and failes to recognize that there has been not global warming for 15 years, while CO2 concentrations continue to increase. The correlation between CO2 and the rise in global tempertures continues to diverge, while there are other explainations with stronger correlations, including sunspots and cosmic rays.

The effort by the UN is a distraction from the real issues. Temperature trends demonstrate cooling, the sun is going quiet and when that has happend in the past the earth cooled, and in many regions agriculture collapsed. We need more of the climate realism, that is being exhibited by House Republicans.

  1. Congress needs to start right in our own government. The EPA, HUD, and Agriculture Department among many others is giving grants to cities and counties to help implement Agenda 21 at the local level with these bribes. There is so much cutting that can be done with even a little effort. There seems to be no will to do it though. 2012 can’t get here soon enough.
