The Congressional Research Service estimates that since 2008 the federal government has spent nearly $70 billion on climate change activities.
Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe presented the new CRS report on the Senate Floor Thursday to make the point that the Obama administration has been focused on green defense projects to the detriment of the military.
The report revealed that from fiscal years 2008 through 2012 the federal government spent $68.4 billion to combat climate change. The Department of Defense also spent $4 billion of its budget, the report adds, on climate change and energy efficiency activities in that same time period.
Inhofe, the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, argued that the expenditures are foolish at a time when the military is facing devastating cuts.

Sad to have to ask for such a figure, but that’s it?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
EXACTLY what liberals do with government, waste money and manpower every day tilting at leftist windmills.
So the feds control global climate now... right?
My wife’s step brother was a Professor of Climatology at U Cal and retired early.

If they are lucky the penchant for a French style revolution doesn’t take hold...
Green Energy, hmmmmmmmmm - - - - - - . Yeah! I saw some yesterday! There it was just basking in the Sun nice and tidy on a green carpet of Bermuda Grass.
I heard a deep noise, turned around and more handy-sized dull green energy packets were falling on the green pasture.
By carefully walking around other drying packets of green energy I found one that had dried out enough to be shipped by air to 1600 Plantation Avenue, in the District of Corruption.
If any of yall want to send Obama some of these green energy packets from a pasture near you, just make sure that all the water is out of these green energy packets, so that the TSA screeners at the airports will approve and then ship your packets by fossil fueled Jet planes.
The nice thing about these magnificent meadow muffins of green energy is that they last a lifetime if you dont get them wet.
Yep, all ya gotta do is add water! Well, be careful to not let them hit a fan, or a fan of green energy.
BTW, I changed my mind: the last idea is probably a good idea - - - .
We have seen the dollar figure before from JoNova's website.
But that is an Austrailian website...so more verification is good.
