That 500 million that Obama just sent to the Green Climate fund is going to be the last money they get from the USA.
$3 billion dollars to the UN for climate change, barely mentioned by the media, who hide the proposed expenditure. That’s 25% of the cost of the fence on the Southern border, which was approved, and partially funded in 2006, by the Congress in 2006, supported by Obama, Clinton, Reid et. al. and signed into law by President Bush.
The Gravy Train Stops

Trump, who made dismantling the Paris agreement a central part of his campaign message, does not intend to directly target the agreement, but instead will reduce U.N. funding, according to a Wednesday report by The News York Times.

Recent reports show 200 countries have reaffirmed pledges to comply with the Paris deal, which aims to keep so-called global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.

“[F]rom what we’ve seen the [executive order] does not mention the Paris Agreement directly, but rather that would be reviewed by default if in fact all multilateral treaties are to be reviewed,” Rhys Gerholdt, a spokesman for the environmental think tank World Resources Institute, told reporters shortly after TheNYT’s report was published.

How does the money help keep the temperature down exactly? Is it all used for green energy development? Or just....money..?

Obviously research and development.

Also obvious, people comment without reading the link.

Not only are we going to stop being the world's broke policeman but it would appear we are also going to stop being the worlds sugar daddy.. I say good business.. Clean our own house and see where the climate change numbers are correct and where they are BS then go on from there.

This is great news!

Throwing our hard earned cash isn't going to solve any problems anyway. This is just a global scam to enrich those in power and fund the junk science behind the entire scheme.

I am loving my President so far.

Research and Development can be funded by the private sector like any task worth doing. I would encourage them to hit up Al Gore and DiCaprio for funding...I hear they are really excited about this.

It isn't obvious though since money seems to be wasted quite commonly.

Regardless, great news.

And it can be funded by the government. Both.

I also sort of link to read the source article before getting into the topic. The link is not right. It doesn't seem to stop anyone else, though.

Could be used for anything, even fossil fuel energy plants. Trick is, loan the money to a third world government under the guise of 'building infrastructure'. This would be infrastructure that the multinational corporations need in order to pillage the countries natural resources. Now, the country has the infrastructure in place, and the people of the country have paid for it. A large portion of the tax dollars of that country will now go towards paying down the debt for the infrastructure that has been built. The multinationals move in and rake in the profit.
The Green Energy fund is modelled after the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, it's a great setup. This is no conspiracy theory, it's the way the world has worked for many years.

"The Green Climate Fund will support projects, programmes, policies and other activities in developing country Parties using thematic funding windows".[1] It is intended to be the centrepiece of efforts to raise Climate Finance of $100 billion a year by 2020. This is not an official figure for the size of the Fund itself, however. Disputes also remain as to whether the funding target will be based on public sources, or whether "leveraged" private finance will be counted towards the total.[2] A total of US$10.3 billion has been pledged so far, which is meant to cover investments over a four year period. Only a fraction of this sum had been pledged as of July 2013, mostly to cover start-up costs.[3

At its board meeting in South Korea held in March 2015, the GCF refused an explicit ban on fossil fuel projects. Japan, China, and Saudi Arabia opposed the ban. "It's like a torture convention that doesn't forbid torture", Karen Orenstein, a campaigner for Friends of the Earth US who attended the meeting told the Guardian. "Honestly it should be a no-brainer at this point"

Thanks for the reply. I'll look more in depth when there is free time to do so, but this should suffice for a quick understanding.

I spent some time in Italy and Switzerland recently, they blow us away as far recycling and being mindful of energy usage... such an embarrassment.

A roll you as a nation took on to control the worlds finances and politics
It was a self serving policy

I bet lots of that money goes to greasing pockets

I am grateful to a point for what the US has done but it wasn't a one way street where you as a nation sacrificed everything you had for others.

Very true.... after WW2 America was a power house of manufacturing and money.. Things have changed since those days... Kinda like a child you sacrificed and insured an education for.. At 45 it is time for them to move out and stand on their own two feet.

Another reason we voted for the man. This Paris foolishness and, for that matter, the foolishness of continuing to flush good money down the toilet that is the UN was long overdue to end. I'm just happy to see sanity and reality merging in the USA again.

How exactly does giving three billion dollars to that agency in France do anything to stop the climate change. It doesn't.

All they have to do to fix climate change is start building more stuff in this country where regulations are higher on polution. And build things to last longer so they don't have to be remade as quickly. I remember when a toaster lasted a generation and a washer and dryer lasted twenty five years. That is not that long ago.

Sure, we can add some solar networks, we do not need that Paris organization to do that. We can get more hydroelectric going too, you do not need Paris for that. I think it is a big scam, some people started an organization to gain prestige and a good salary for the people in their group, others that think like them.

Sure we should take care of our environment, every one of us should do that. Every year try to make less of an environmental footprint by not buying all the things you do not really need. We need to work with each other and not go on that cruise or fly all over the place. We do not need to be Ahmish either, just keep our environment in mind when we do things, do not do it to impress others, do it to make yourself feel a little better.
