Obama trying to transfer 1.5% of US GDP to UN for climate change
I heard this on Rush Limbaugh this morning while driving back from an appointment. He cited Roy Spencer and Lord Monckton reporting that the Obama Administration is cutting a backroom deal with the UN to give them 1.5% of our GDP to fight non-existent anthropogenic climate change. I’ll put a link up to this tomorrow when the show is available, or you can go to his website tomorrow and hear for yourself what was said on today’s show. Edit: Here’s a link to the notes, here’s a link to listen, but you have to sign up.
While this should be ratified by Congress ala the Kyoto Treaty, it sounds like Obama is going to try and do an end-run around Congress and do this via executive order. I sincerely hope people like Jim Inhofe are not asleep at the switch and head this off before it starts sucking US bank accounts dry. It appears the ‘sting‘ continues.
With the current deficit we certainly don’t need to be throwing dollars at non-existent problems when there are real ones to be dealt with right here in the good old USA. Moreover, we already provide the corrupt institution known as the United Nations with more money than any other country and now this bonehead wants to give them more based on curing a problem that isn’t man caused and doesn’t exists.
According to the CIA World Factbook, the GDP of the United States for 2009 was about $14.12 trilliion, or $46,000 dollars per person. One percent of $14.12 trillion is $141 billion dollars or $460 per person. According to Yahoo Finance about 47% of the population of the US didn’t pay income taxes in 2009. So basically you people who work for living can double the $460 to $920 of your hard-earned dollars.
