Some GOOD Climate Change News.

Gee, maybe the House is S-L-O-W-L-Y starting to see the light on the fraud known as Anthropogenic Global Warming. The House has cut funding for the State department “climate change programs”.

ANYTHING would be a good start. We shall see if it survives the Senate, which, run by the weakling McConnell, has a BAD habit of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. John Brodgian at Right Wing News. com has the story.

 

House Committee Drops Funding for Climate-Change Programs

 05 Jun, 2015  by John Brodgian

Just before what’s called the most “important” U.N. climate conference in years, appropriators in the House of Representatives have cut funding for the Presidents “international climate change funding.” Mainly because, it’s supposed to be a national security bill

What do you suppose John-Effing- Kerry is saying here ? Add your own caption along with your sanguine comments below. Mine would be : “This is length of the amount of zeros with a number in front of it I cheated the government out of taxes”.

An appropriations bill for the State Department and foreign operations, released Tuesday, excludes funding for three major climate initiatives – the Green Climate Fund, the Clean Technology Fund, and the Strategic Climate Fund – and also removes funding for the U.N.-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The bill eliminates funding for these “lower-priority international programs,” the House Appropriations Committee said in a statement, in order to meet what it views as top priorities – including “funding for security activities around the world,” support for key allies, and increased funding “for embassy and diplomatic security to address new needs identified after the Benghazi terrorist attack.”

I guess lying about climate change being a national security issue didn’t work. No word on if the State Department will not try Neil Degrasse Tyson memes.

Tell the U-frigging-N to pound sand. Our money is MORE useful THIS way than giving it to THOSE scoundrels.

I sure hope this stands up in the Senate. You will be able to hear the wailing, howling and teeth-gnashing from New York, to Geneva, to the White Mosque.

The three named funds are NOTHING more than scams to separate the U.S. Treasury from taxpayer funds to ENRICH the assholes in the three entities. It has N-O-T-H-I-N-G to do with “saving the planet”.

While I see this as good news, I am a bit reluctant to celebrate. With McConnell in charge, and since he seems to be running the joint like Dingy Harry did, I look for this bill to be returned to the House, where Boehner WILL cave .

A big hat-tip to our own Kathy.

CLYDE. It would be GREAT to see the start of the snowball of removing funding to promulgate the fraud. Ain’t holding my breath.

    I may be wrong but I don’t believe the Senate has a say in the matter. The House holds the purse strings. I don’t think it is a shared deal.
    Kinda like Advise and Consent is the POTUS & Senate.

  2. Uriel says:

    Wasn’t sure either. Wiki says the following

    After both houses pass a budget resolution, selected Representatives and Senators negotiate a conference report to reconcile differences between the House and the Senate versions. The conference report, in order to become binding, must be approved by both the House and Senate. A budget resolution is a concurrent resolution that binds Congress, but is not a law, and so does not require the President’s signature.

    Then there’s this – “The US House Committee on Appropriations is a committee of the House of Representatives. The House Committee on Appropriations is responsible for passing appropriation bills along with its Senate counterpart.”

    So it has to pass both committees, but not the whole Senate, is the way I understand it. If the Senate doesn’t approve it as is, then the dickering back & forth begins.

    Good on the House for leaving out the funding for the biggest farce of the century. Let’s hope it flies.

    ALL : Thanks for the comments, and setting me straight. I STILL would not trust the “leaders” of the GOPe to backpedal on this.

  5. CW says:

    I’ve been fooled too many times to get excited. We’ll see if this holds.

  6. Hardnox says:

    Good for a change.

    IF indeed the House has sole discretion over spending where the hell was Boehner the last four years?
