Senators: No More ‘Climate’ Bailouts

Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) indicates today he may try and prompt some actual oversight, from his position as ranking member of the Subcommittee on Oversight in the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, coming out swinging against the prospect of the Obama administration transferring billions in taxpayer dollars to developing nations now in the name of climate change.  

Barrasso joined Senators James Inhofe (R-OK), David Vitter (R-LA) and George Voinovich (R-OH) to send a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton demanding the administration freeze further spending requests to implement international climate change finance programs. In his statement about the letter Barasso said: 

“We have a $1.29 trillion deficit and are $13.6 trillion in debt. It makes no sense for the United States to now spend billions of taxpayer dollars to fight climate change in other countries. Americans are concerned about jobs, the economy, the debt and spending.  If the administration is serious about listening to the American people, they will cancel this international climate change bailout.”

This is a reminder that the only thing the overwhelming majority of the world rejecting outright the ‘Kyoto’ agenda want, expect and will ‘accept’ by the end of the Cancun Kyoto II talks in just under a fortnight (that is not their call, but it is their rhetoric), is a big bag of U.S. taxpayer money. As politically, but not legally, committed by Obama during his (second) failed visit to Copenhagen, last December. They should not get it.
