U.S. Funding Half of IPCC Expenses

Timothy Birdnow

Looks like the U.S. taxpayer is footing the bill for nearly half of the IPCC expenses.

According to CNS News:

" – A study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) determined that the United States funded the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the United Nations’ authority on alleged man-made global warming, with $31.1 million since 2001, nearly half of the panel’s annual budget.

The GAO also found that this funding information “was not available in budget documents or on the websites of the relevant federal agencies, and the agencies are generally not required to report this information to Congress.”

In a Nov. 17, 2011 report, “International Climate Change Assessments: Federal Agencies Should Improve Reporting and Oversight of U.S. Funding,” the GAO found that the State Department provided $19 million for administrative and other expenses, while the United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) provided $12.1 million in technical support through the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), averaging an annual $3.1 million to the IPCC over 10 years -- $31.1 million so far."

End excerpt.

So, America is paying to get screwed by the U.N., paying for junk science as a tool to make America poorer and place her under the thumb of the internationalistic misanthrope.

Any wonder why we are broke?
