Senator: ‘Obama Quietly Handing Over Billions to UN in Name of Global Warming’…

(Senate.gov) – While all of the attention today in Washington is on the looming fiscal cliff, President Obama’s administration is quietly handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations in the name of global warming.

Hello, I am Senator Jim Inhofe, Republican Senator from Oklahoma, Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, and chief critic of President Obama’s far left green agenda

SPECIAL: Impeach Obama NOW! “We the People” are sick and tired of the fraud in the White House!

Over the past decade, I have been leading the charge in Washington to make sure the global warming hoax is exposed.  A big part of that effort has been putting the spotlight on what takes place at the UN’s annual global warming conferences.  While I have been unable to travel to the last few conferences, I have counted on groups like CFACT to provide “on the ground” reports.  This year’s UN conference is in Doha, Qatar and  I’m pleased that Lord Christopher Monckton is there working with his partners, including CFACT Executive Director Craig Rucker and Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com.  I’m certainly looking forward to the release of Climate Depot’s new report that debunks the alarmists’ extreme weather claims. 

The last time I attended a global warming conference was in 2009, when I spent only three hours at their gathering in Copenhagen. I arrived just after President Obama, Secretary Clinton, and Senator Kerry promised world leaders that the United States would act on cap-and-trade. I was in Copenhagen as a one-man truth squad: I said that the United States Senate would never ratify the Kyoto treaty or pass cap-and-trade.  I was right, and now even the liberal media is admitting that these conferences are pointless.  As Der Spiegel put it, the conference in Doha is “turning into a farce.” The UK Guardian said that “Doha is a byword for stalemate and failure” and the New York Times reported that after the failure of the Rio+20 conference held in June, “more and more people may be ignoring these global confabs.”

It’s not surprising that this year’s conference has been ignored. Remember EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson admitted to me that EPA’s global warming regulations are based primarily on the now exposed Climategate science of the completely discredited UN IPCC. The Atlantic Monthly said of Climategate “the stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering.” And the UK Telegraph wrote that “This is the worst scientific scandal of our generation.”

Of course, the focus of this year’s global warming conference – like all the conferences before – is not the environment.  It’s about one thing: spreading the wealth around. As the Associated Press reported, “one of the main challenges will be raising climate aid for poor countries at a time when budgets are strained by financial turmoil.”

Three years ago, President Obama helped create a United Nations Green Slush Fund that would redistribute over $100 billion from developed countries to developing countries. While he has been racking up huge deficits and talking up tax increases, the President has already sent billions of American taxpayer dollars to the United Nations – and he’s managed to do it quietly so that no one will notice.

How many billions have already been handed over in the last three years? It’s hard to tell. There appears to be little in the way of transparency. Bloomberg reports that the European Union, the United States, Japan and other developed nations paid out in the range of $23 to $34 billion.

Of course, this is just the beginning. United Nations Climate Chief Christiana Figueres explained her job this way: “It is the most inspiring job in the world because what we are doing here is we are inspiring government, private sector, and civil society to [make] the biggest transformation that they have ever undertaken. The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.” This is the top UN Climate chief: she sees herself as the overseer of “transforming” the lives of everyone on the planet.

At the global warming conference in Milan, I asked an African delegate who I knew why he had attended and he said, “It has nothing to do with the science; it’s because it’s the biggest party of the year.” It’s time to put an end to these lavish, absurd global warming parties and focus on the real problems that we face.

In the meantime, I am thankful that groups like CFACT are willing and able to expose this farce for what it is. Your work is critical. But as long as you are there, make sure you enjoy some of the party. Remember, the worst crisis that happened in Copenhagen was that they ran out of caviar, so get some before it’s gone!
