As Debt Crisis Looms, Obama Quietly Shovels $Billions at Hostile United Nations

When Barack Hussein Obama says he wants to “spread the wealth around,” he doesn’t just mean within America. He means from America. The global warming hoax and the odious United Nations are vehicles he is exploiting to achieve this objective. Countermoonbat Senator Jim Inhofe warns than even as the nation approaches bankruptcy, Obama continues to fling our hard-earned money to the four winds:

While all of the attention today in Washington is on the looming fiscal cliff, President Obama’s administration is quietly handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations in the name of global warming.

This years UN conference in Doha, Qatar is a prime opportunity.

Of course, the focus of this year’s global warming conference — like all the conferences before — is not the environment. It’s about one thing: spreading the wealth around. As the Associated Press reported, “one of the main challenges will be raising climate aid for poor countries at a time when budgets are strained by financial turmoil.”

If you can say “climate aid” with a straight face, send your resume to the United Nations.

Three years ago, President Obama helped create a United Nations Green Slush Fund that would redistribute over $100 billion from developed countries to developing countries. While he has been racking up huge deficits and talking up tax increases, the President has already sent billions of American taxpayer dollars to the United Nations — and he’s managed to do it quietly so that no one will notice.

It is unclear how much of our money Obama has already flushed away in this manner, due to what his regime calls “transparency.” However much has been wasted, it is only the beginning.

United Nations Climate Chief Christiana Figueres explained her job this way: “It is the most inspiring job in the world because what we are doing here is we are inspiring government, private sector, and civil society to [make] the biggest transformation that they have ever undertaken. The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different.” This is the top UN Climate chief: she sees herself as the overseer of “transforming” the lives of everyone on the planet.

Fundamental transformation of our lives through mass theft sounds familiar, doesn’t it? The UN and Obama are definitely on the same page.

    That would have been the “Great leap forward”, where 45 million stopped contributing to climate change permanently in four years time

    As with all other central planners, when this fails miserably
    Leftists will lie
    And you will die

  2. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    I guess “consensus” is a very fragile thing

  3. Bob Roberts says:

    Monckton gave a lecture here – I was fortunate enough to attend. He’s quite an engaging speaker. Most lecturers put me to sleep.

    Here are some additional links on the topic:

    ‘The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land & sea, was issued quietly on internet, without any media fanfare, & , until today, it has not been reported. This stands in sharp contrast to release of previous figures 6 months ago, which went only to end of 2010 – a very warm year…From beginning of 1997 until August 2012 there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temps.’

    ‘Two new separate peer-reviewed studies, published in prestigious academic journals last week [challenged ‘Hockey Stick’] — ‘The level of warmth during the peak of the MWP in the second half of the 10th Century, equaled or slightly exceeded the mid-20th Century warming.’ There was also a pronounced warming period in Roman times’

    Flashback 2011: A PNAS peer-reviewed admission that ‘global surface temperatures did not rise between 1998 and 2008’

    Curry defends UK Daily Mail article: ‘How does this refute Rose’s argument? No statistically significant positive trend, and it makes it look like [warmist Skeptical Science] hasn’t done their homework with the latest data’

    Judith Curry: ‘The trend since 1997 is very small, much smaller than the decadal trend of 0.2C that we have been led to expect by the IPCC for the early part of the 21st century…’

    And additional links on the topic:

    Curry defends UK Daily Mail article: ‘How does this refute Rose’s argument? No statistically significant positive trend, and it makes it look like [warmist Skeptical Science] hasn’t done their homework with the latest data’

    Lüning/Vahrenholt On HadCRUT’s 16 Years Of No Warming: ‘Tough Times Ahead For Climate Science’ — ‘It turns out that everything that had been suspected was confirmed’

    After years of saying 15 years would prove statistical significance concurrent with 16 years of no statistically significant warming, what do they say? Analysis on 16 year ‘pause’ in global wamring: ‘Regarding the significance of the period from 1997, recall that Dr. Ben Santer claimed 17 years was the period needed’

    And once we have 17 years of data they’ll stay we need 18, 19 or 20. This is sort of like nuclear fusion. For the past 30 or 40 years it’s been just 30 or 40 years in the future.

    ‘This is a completely unexpected development when one considers how all the boldly confident forecasts from the IPCC predicted more warming. The release of new HadCRUT figures occurred almost in absolute silence, without any media buzz whatsoever…One really has got to wonder that Jones has suddenly extended his personal threshold of pain to 20 years, and now claims that phases of no warming 15-16 years long had always been expected.’

    Prof. Judith Curry: ‘The data confirms existence of a ‘pause’ in warming’: ‘The natural variability has been shown over past 2 decades to have a magnitude that dominates greenhouse warming signal’

    Curry: ‘It is becoming increasingly apparent that our attribution of warming since 1980 and future projections of climate change needs to consider natural internal variability as a factor of fundamental importance. I sincerely hope that the AR5 provides an assessment of what we know and what we don’t know and areas of disagreement, rather than trying to manufacture a consensus.’

    And still more links:

    New Phil Jones quote: ‘We don’t know what natural variability is doing’ — ‘We don’t fully understand how to input things like changes in the oceans’

    ‘…and because we don’t fully understand it you could say that natural variability is now working to suppress the warming. We don’t know what natural variability is doing…’

    Climategate’s Phil Jones ‘insisted that 15 or 16 years is not a significant period: pauses of such length had always been expected, he said’ in 2012

    ‘Yet in 2009, when the [temperature] plateau was already becoming apparent and being discussed by scientists, Jones told a colleague in one of the Climategate emails: ‘Bottom line: the ‘no upward trend’ has to continue for a total of 15 years before we get worried.’ — ‘In other words, though 5 years ago he seemed to be saying that 15 years without warming would make him ‘worried’, that period has now become 20 years’

    Flashback 2009: Prof. Pielke Jr.: ‘Kudos to NOAA for being among the first to explicitly state what sort of observation would be inconsistent with model predictions — 15 years of no warming’

    ‘The UK Met Office says world has warmed by 0.03 deg C per decade since 1997…But what the Met Office doesn’t say is that this is statistically insignificant’

    ‘There is no case to be made for a statistically significant increase in global temperatures as given in the Hadcrut4 dataset between 1997 and August 2012. The Met Office says the 15-year standstill is not unusual. This is true but again the Met Office is being economical with the truth’

    NOAA’s ’15 year statement’ from 2008 puts a kibosh on the current Met Office ‘insignificance’ claims that global warming flatlined for 16 years

    ‘Yet, today, we see evidence of the goalposts being moved again as the Met Office tries to paint this lack of warming ‘plateau’ as being insignificant…So we are at 16 years, soon to be 17 years. What happens when we hit 20 years? Either the models are worth something or they aren’t. In this case it seems they aren’t’

  6. Mr Evilwrench says:

    If you saw what they use as a model you would laugh, but you would no longer be surprised that their predictions are so wrong.

  7. Bob Roberts says:

    Attempting to further support the myth of anthropogenically driven global warming, MSNBC destroys it.

    Climate fraudsters continually deny that single events, days or months are valid examples of what weather and climate are doing when those events do not support the narrative of their fantasies. However, those same single events are “proof” when they DO support the narrative.

    I say one rule – either single events DO or DO NOT support one’s position. Since this article is trying to claim (likely falsely, but that’s for another post another time) that 2012 is “the hottest year ever”, which is actually meaningless as far as long term climate is concerned, just as the super El Nino a while back was also not “proof” of anything, in trying to establish their fraud they let something slip:

    “For 2012 not to be record warm, December would have to be unprecedented,” Jake Crouch, a scientist at the National Climatic Data Center, told NBC News. “December temperatures would need to be more than 1 degree F colder than the coldest December on record, which occurred in 1983.”

    The COLDEST DECEMBER ON RECORD occurred in 1983. Right in the middle of all that supposed human caused warming.

    What the Marxist-in-Chief is doing is classic “Cloward and Pivan”. Bring America to it’s knees financially. And the weak, gullible, and totally brain-dead American sheeple are watching it unfold right before their eyes.

  9. James McEnanly says:

    Someone should remind the U.N just how much rent you would need to pay on an office building that size in Lower Manhattan, as well as the utilities.
