Pelosi Flying Out With Democrats To U.N. Climate Meeting In Spain

(Breitbart) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will fly out Sunday with a large delegation of congressional Democrats heading 3,781 miles across the Atlantic to the United Nations COP25 climate change conference in Madrid.

A key element of the conference will seek to place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.” The Pelosi delegation will join almost 25,000 people and 1500 journalists flying into the Spanish capital to attend the meeting.

Pelosi’s absence from Washington, DC, will cast cast doubt on the possibility of passing an updated North American trade deal by the end of 2019, a departure from her previous characterization of the deal as “imminent.”

The members of the taxpayer-funded Pelosi Democrat delegation include:

  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
  • Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI)
  • Chairman Frank Pallone (D-NJ), Committee on Energy and Commerce
  • Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX), Committee on Science, Space, Technology
  • Chairman Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), Committee on Natural Resources
  • Chairwoman Kathy Castor (D-FL), Select Committee on the Climate Crisis
  • Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN)
  • Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR)
  • Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA)
  • Congressman Jared Huffman (D-CA)
  • Congressman Scott Peters (D-CA)
  • Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI)
  • Congressman Mike Levin (D-CA)
  • Congressman Sean Casten (D-IL)
  • Congressman Joe Neguse (D-CO)

COP25 will also consider implementing taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures,” as Breitbart News reported.

Pelosi’s team claims it will will seek to “reaffirm the commitment of the American people to combating the climate crisis” at the 2019 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also called COP25, her office said on Saturday confirming the trip.

This is despite the fact the Speaker of the House will represent nobody but herself and her party as she is prevented by law from conducting foreign policy or make any agreements with foreign leaders regarding sovereign treaties.

“It is a privilege to accompany a high-level Congressional delegation to Spain to combat the existential threat of our time: the climate crisis,” Pelosi said in the statement.

“Taking action to protect our planet is a public health decision for clean air and clean water for our children, an economic decision for creating the green, good-paying jobs of the future, a national security decision to address resource competition and climate migration and also a moral decision to be good stewards of God’s creation and pass a sustainable, healthy planet to the next generation,” she added.

President Donald Trump officially withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord in October as part of an election promise to voters, saying he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

As Breitbart News reported, as far back as June, 2017 Trump said he was looking forward to exiting the agreement.

The president spoke then of following through on his commitments to the American people.

“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” Trump declared.

Compliance with the accord could have cost the U.S. “as much as 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025 according to the National Economic Research Associates,” said Trump. “This includes 440,000 fewer manufacturing jobs — not what we need…”

The final U.S. withdrawal from the landmark accord is scheduled for November 4, 2020, a day after the next presidential election.

Several Democratic presidential aspirants have said that, if elected, they would immediately return to the agreement.

  1. MY GOD WHEN ARE THESE MINDLESS DRONES GOING TO WAKE UP LOOK BACK AT THE WEATHER FROM 1800 HUNDREDS TEMP GO UP DOWN SUMMERS ARE COOLER THEM NORM OR HOTTER THEN NORM WINTER SAME THING SO REALLY PEOPLE AND THE REASON WHY I SAY THAT IS BECAUSE SOME OF THE WEATHER PATTERNS THEY HAD BACK THEN ARE THE SAME AS WE ARE HAVING TODAY SO WAKE UP STUPIDS

  2. Hey Bob do you questions the obamas vacations in Hawaii , what do you think how much they spent left and right while he’s in office ? Did you asked Obama why he gave billions to Iran, no because you’re a Democrat’s .
    SAD

  3. Well they haven’t done anything in the last three years that helped Americans so why would we miss any of the fifteen LIB’S going overseas and handing the taxpayers the cost of this party. Oh well 2020 we can show them the door and then they can spend as mocu time as they would like in Spain.

  4. COP25 will also consider implementing taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures,”

    so it’s not about climate, but about redistribution of wealth…aka communism

    • Exactly. If they are so worried about flying why don’t they practice what they preach and stay in the US. I’ve said like you that this is all about control over our lives. Where we can go, forcing us to use mass transit, concentrating people in cities where they can be controlled more easily and even telling us what we can eat. That sounds like the good old U.S.S.R. Communism at it’s worst. How can anyone who thinks critically at all vote Democratic?

  5. Why don’t you stay here and use telecommunications instead of taking private planes and creating more damage to our climate. Stay in the US and get your job done to help with healthcare, education, improving roads and bridges and all of those things you promised you would after you won the mid-terms! You have done nothing and you won’t get re-elected in 2020.

    • The true meaning of Climate Change, punish the working people and reward the ruling class and their friends. We get punished for flying as they fly all over the world to fancy resorts to party with other Royalty to talk about how to get more money from the working class so they can party better.

  6. If you really want to understand what is going on in our government, I urge (even beg) you to read Andrew Breibart’s book called “Righteous Indignation” or at least watch Glenn Beck’s recent video called “The Democrat Hydra” on YouTube. Glenn’s video provides factual documents and text messages obtained through the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) and not conspiracy theory. If you agree this information is correct, you can do your part like I am by spreading it around. Yes, I keep posting this in hopes to reach new readers. We need to do something, not just talk about it.

  7. Pelosi and the other Democrats are running away from their phony impeachment charges and the vote to impeach as if they can outrun their bad reputations. But it does leave Schiff and Nadar in a bad position, they don’t have the votes to do anything. Wonder how many millions it is costing us tax payers for Pelosi and her desperados vacation in Spain?

  8. So they’re meeting to create a penalty for flying commercially.hmmm maybe they should lead by example and take a boat back. Since they’re concerned with the environment then it should be a sailboat. That way we won’t see them until this time next year.

  9. None of these stupid idiot democrats have any business attending this Bull Shit meeting. Climate Change is a Bull Shit Hoax

  10. Any chance that the Spanish government will keep her there for ever for we the American voters?????? Just hoping!!!!!!!!……

  11. How do you create a more stable “climate” when the people and political party making the suggestions and demands for all of us to follow, are the ones that are unstable? Pick an enemy you can’t see, and flail around and spend boatloads of money, only to never know if any progress is made against your mortal enemy…climate change. Only a democrat thinks that they can change the weather.

  12. They have done nothing for the American people, leaving the Mexico/Canada trade agreements undone, the infrastructure undone, the drug bills undone. Who gives them permission to spend taxpayer dollars on these boondoggles? Is this how she gets people to voter her way? Pays them off with expensive trips abroad where they have absolutely no authority to speak for the American people? I have not given my permission to be taxed to send money to 3rd world countries who are still polluting. The US has done its job at home reducing emissions, etc. That’s enough. Besides, where we are it is the coldest yearly average its been since 2010, it is getting cooler, not hotter. Stupid fools, Pelosi just reminded me why normal people think democrats are brain dead. They are good at one thing, spending our money. We work hard all year and can’t take our own families to Spain, but they can tax us to death to take their families on 3 or 4 vacations every year on our dime. This is hateful behavior by people who claim to “care” about the “people”. They are liars and fools and hypocrites. Vote them all out of office.

  13. Remember, this is the same mental midget that said, we have to vote for the bill before we can read what is in it, or something very similar.

  14. Democrats spending taxpayer dollars in support of a dead agreement. What a waste, but that does not matter to Democrats, they get rich and their constituents get poor. Do they all need to go, really, none of them need to go. Pelosi wants power and right now she has it, we will see after the 2020 elections if she can keep it. Hopefully the American people will “wake up” in 2020 and boot her out as speaker of the house and the Democrats with her. California has gone to the dogs (apologies to our canine friends) and Pelosi is at the head of the pack! Oh, by the way, how are these Democrats getting to Spain, by airplane, is that what the conference is about (…”the conference will seek to place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.”) How are the rest of the conference attendees getting there, what absolute hypocrites!

  15. Who is buying air travel? …American Taxpayers!
    Who is buying hotel rooms? …American Taxpayers!
    Who is buying dinner? …American Taxpayers!
    Who is polluting air and “damaging” climate with big jet international air travel?
    Nancy Pelosi and democrat hypocrites pretending this is a significant
    outing for the People’s business!

  16. Not a one of those jerks know anything about the climate.They live and work in AC homes and offices ride in AC limo’s
    Just another vacation from not doing their jobs and the fools that voted for them gets stiffed with the bill along with the ones that didn’t vote for the non working jerks.

  17. If Pelosi is a certified scientist on environmental and climate issues then I believe she has the genuine objective in attending that U.N conference on CLIMATE CHANGE otherwise it’s a short vacation for the following democrats and a WASTE OF TAXPAYER’S DOLLARS.

    • I understand that Trumps cute little Frivolous trips to Mara Lago cost us taxpayers about a million $1,000,000.00 EACH TIME he jumps on AirForce 1…… I hope you enjoy paying for that…..especially since he ONLY goes once a month

  18. Lets see she is flying to Spain to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.”
    Makes no sense but then they are democrats what do I expect.

    • I don’t know if Nancy and the others are flying commercial. I notice they want to penalize commercial aviation so regular middle class people won’t be able to fly. Nothing about penalties on private jets for the elite!

    • Remember, this is the same mental midget that said, we have to vote for the bill before we can read what is in it, or something very similar.

  19. Yet another boondoggle. And Christmas is only 3 weeks away – time for some Christmas shopping. Congress has no power in this meeting so why??? What a waste of money for flight, Booze, 5 star accommodations, more booze, dinners, more booze. And I suppose their families are with them. What a sham

  20. Adam Schiff didn’t get to go on this little tax payer funded vacation???..he must be very upset; he’s gone with her on all her other tax payer rip off trips.
    Pelosi’s trip is NOT the sanctioned Federal Goverment Trip. Our real goverment actually has a delegation attending….Pelosi is just going as a photo op, and she’ll very likely spend no time at the meetings but rather have her staffers go and take notes, so she can pretend she knows what was discussed. She will be busy shopping and touring the Spanish countryside….very important she does that to help the people of California who she claims to represent.

  21. Do you STILL not know what ‘Global Warming’ is all about? It is about money, money, money, money, money. The next time you hear a professor or speaker talking about ‘Global Warming’ ask him or her what happened to Earth on 12/27/2004? I guarantee that they will have no idea what happened. Do you know? If you do not just ask your computer. THIS is what we need to be putting our money into and NOT into the back pockets of the Democratic Party, the EU, and thousands of people who push an idea ONLY because their job NEEDS a non-problem to exist. NEVER give these abject thieves a penny.

  22. Bunch of hypocrites..filling the air with jet fuel emissions. Gotta get thst free vacation in before recess. They go on alot of these trips. This one should have attended by Trumps appointed Environmental Committee. These other phonies don’t care about the environment…along for a free ride. I am surprised the expert AOC is not there.

  23. Only democrats have to GO to SPAIN by PLANE to discuss how environmentally unsound it is to fly on airplanes!
    It would be environmentally sound to Watch and discuss the event online – yet several DEMOCRATS are taking their trip completely paid for by AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS!!

  24. This is all just to defy President Trumps decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Change Treaty and delay getting any meaningful work done in Congress. Who votes these bozos in anyway? How much hypocrisy do we have to endure? They are all Flying into Spain using tax payer dollars to discuss the harmful effects of Flying?!!?

    • No, it would not. Now if the door suddenly opened and all the Democrats got sucked out, that would be different. Of course, we would have to have a National Day of Mourning. And we’d have to offer any Sharks involved free medical care for life. But that would be cheaper than taking care of these losers.

  25. Could have done this over the internet with all the modern electronics and saved us a lot of money, but I guess she wanted a free vacation to presuade the other demos vote. She could fly first class by herself to represent the USA. I hope Trump stops the flight

  26. I have just one question for all these “Climate Change Guru’s”. If climate change is such a horrible thing, what is the optimum temperature & CO2 levels we should strive to obtain?!?!?

    No one has been able to give me an answer to that question.

    Also, how much CO2 is going to be produced by all these people traveling to attend this conference? Can you say HYPOCRISY?

    • Ask a nursery grower with a greenhouse. The upper limits of carbon dioxide are nowhere near the best for the plants to use. Current air average is about 400 ppm while plants produce more ( up to 30% ) at up to 1500 ppm. That is a level 3 times higher than recorded anywhere on Earth currently.

  27. Gee, I sure hope their plane doesn’t have trouble or crash while they are spending OUR tax money on still another vacation under the pretext of work….

  28. I have just one question for all these “Climate Change Guru’s”. If climate change is such a horrible thing, what is the optimum temperature & CO2 levels we should strive to obtain?!?!?

    No one has been able to give me an answer to that question.

    Also, what is the amount of CO2 all these people are going to produce to attend this conference?!?!? Can you say HYPOCRISY?

  29. With all the electronical ways of holding meetings she could do it with the other stupid demos look for a free vacation over the internet and safe the USA a lot of unnecessary expenses.

  30. If she is respecting no one but herself, how is she allowed to spend public funds? This applies to the entire lot.

    Certainly, if they are talking “reparations”, they are not addressing anything except costing tax payers even more.

    This is far from our interests and expectations when they were elected.

  31. “A key element of the conference will seek to place financial penalties on global commercial aviation to stop people flying and making “unnecessary contributions to atmospheric carbon dioxide pollution.”” And yet they are FLYING. I guess it is the old do as I say and not as I do adage. What a bunch of hypocrites unless of course they have a private jet to fly on, then it is all ok.

  32. Typical of democrats. When not in committee trying to impeach our duly elected President Donald J. Trump, they are spending the hardworking American Citizens on inane junkets away from their base and offices. When will we ever be able to elect an honorable, honest, law abiding, free thinking, courageous to step out democrat person who has integrity enough to actually do HIS/HER job without input from the “PARTY?” I left!

  33. WHY SO MANY PEOPLE…1 OR 2 COULD DO THE SAME…THE DEMS ARE TAKING A VACATION ON THE TAX PAYERS …REMEMBER THIS WHEN IT IS TIME TO VOTE !! ANOTHER RIPP OFF !!

    • …and just getting back from a Thanksgiving holiday break and now around the world. Do they ever actually work for the people?
