President Elect Donald Trump campaigned he would “cancel billions in global warming payments to the United Nations.” Obama gave the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund $500 million and pledged an additional $3 billion.
Trump said, “We’re spending hundreds of billions of dollars. We don’t even know who’s doing what with the money. That money that could be better spent at home in support of “America’s vital environmental infrastructure and natural resources.”
“We’re gonna work on our own environment,” he continued. “That includes repairing the Herbert Hoover Dike in Lake Okeechobee, protecting the Florida Everglades.”
No matter what your feelings on anthropogenic global warming are, the United Nations clearly isn’t going to do anything to solve the problem. In fact, most of the U.N.’s global warming activities are mainly globalized redistribution from developed economies to developing economies, with profoundly flawed oversight.
