Good news. The Australian government is cutting out the enviro-middlemen, saying No to one $11 billion Green Blob.
Australia stands as the only wealthy country to have ruled out a contribution to the United Nations Green Climate Fund. As of last week, the fund had received pledges from 22 countries totalling $US9.6 billion ($A11.2 billion) against an initial funding target of $US10 billion.
The UN money making scheme was never about the poor or the environment. If it was they wouldnt be wasting aid on so-called clean energy subsidies, which wont change the weather:
The fund is a new financing mechanism to help developing countries protect themselves from the impacts of climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It will invest in clean energy generation and distribution, energy-efficient buildings and transport, forest conservation and management, and the climate-proofing of infrastructure and agriculture against storms, floods and higher temperatures.
Apparently the Australian government can see that funding these UN agencies is hand-feeding sharks. By paying for environmental aid direct, our tax funds might achieve something useful, and it exposes the hypocritical self-interest of the Green Gravy train. Which environmental groups will praise Abbott and Bishop? All the ones that put the environment and the poor ahead of the Blobby.
That list here
Instead, the so-called greenies will talk about Australia committing unforgivable social crimes like falling out of step, failing to match international action and being mean.
The Erf is Doooomed...
Obama is doing his best to keep disorder going!
At least one leader—LEADER— in the G20 has guts and some titanium testicles. Thank you Tony Abbott, thank you....
Good job, sir! It’s nice to know that not everyone in a position of power is corrupt and/or insane.
Aussies are leading the way with going after the muzzie scum too! Salute!
A lot will depend on how much big business Republicans and small business Republicans/Tea Party can agree on measures.
