Trump Forces Europe To Pay More For The UN’s Global Warming Panel

French President Emmanuel Macron said Europe would pay for the U.S.’s share of the United Nations arm responsible for putting together major assessments of global warming science.

President Donald Trump signed a budget bill that zeroed out funding for United Nations global warming programs, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Macron made the announcement at the UN climate talks in Bonn, Germany, where diplomats are hashing out aspects of the Paris climate accord. Trump announced in June he would withdraw the U.S. from the accord.

Macron and other European leaders are definitely on the opposite end of the global warming spectrum than Trump, but these countries will have to significantly up their contributions to the IPCC to make up for the U.S. shortfall.

The U.S. is by far the IPCC’s largest funder, contributing more than $44 million to the climate science organization since 1988. The Obama administration continued more than $1.9 million towards the IPCC’s $4.3 million in 2015, according to UN records.

France, on the other hand, only gave about $215,000 to the IPCC in 2015. Germany only sent around $320,000 that year, and the U.K. only sent a combined about $252,000.

The Obama administration also pledged $3 billion to the UN’s Green Climate Fund, which funnels money towards green energy and mitigation projects in developing countries. They only ended up sending $1 billion to the fund.

    Actually Obama’s administration robbed tax payers and sent unauthorized money to the UN globalists . $500 million as he was packing up his basketball and golf clubs .
    President Trump was absolutely correct to not blow tax payer money on an unauthorized fraud pretending to set the earth’s temperature . If President McClown wants to pour tax payer money down the drain well carry on .
    The world has plenty of environmental challenges to address but the mann made global warning fraud isn’t one of them .
    When France gets invaded next who they going to call ?

    and thank him for inviting climate scientists to exit the USA and move to France .
