Congress Demands Obama Disclose What He Spent On Global Warming Programs…


President Obama has devoted a large part of his presidency hyping alarm over global warming.

But the climate change precaution is a burden on the American taxpayer.

Congressional Research in 2013 shows that the federal government spent $77 billion global warming programs over a five year period.

Congressional Republicans want to know exactly how much President Obama has spent on global warming since 2013. The Obama administration is required by a 2015 budget law to disclose all of its global earning expenses to Congress by June, but has yet to do so.

Key Republicans on the House Appropriations and Energy and Commerce committees sent the White House a letter of Monday demanding an updated report on much federal agencies are spending on global warming related programs spending before President Obama leaves office,.

More from Daily Caller:

A 2013 White House report detailed more than $20 billion in global warming-related spending and was supposed to deliver such information to Congress by June, but that didn’t happen.

“We believe it is important that there be transparency and accountability with regard to the climate change related expenditures across the federal government, and that Congress and the public should know how much is spent by federal agencies, and for what purpose,” lawmakers wrote.

The chairmen of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the House Committee on Appropriations sent the letter to Shaun Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Congress included a provision in the last-minute budget deal that was hashed out in December, 2015, requiring OMB to submit “a comprehensive report … describing in detail all Federal agency funding, domestic and international, for climate change programs, projects, and activities in fiscal years 2015 and 2016.”

The budget provision was included after President Obama pledged billions of dollars to global warming-related programs.

Obama pledged $3 billion to the United Nations Green Climate Fund and said he’d spend $10 billion on green energy research. So far, Obama’s only been able to spend $500 million of his Green Climate Fund pledge.

For perspective, the $22.2 billion in global warming spending was nearly twice as much as the government said it would spend on customs and border enforcement.

Obama’s 2014 budget request only asked for $12 billion to fund the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency. The White House projected it would spend $21.4 billion on global warming in 2014.

Global warming alarmists have an unshakable faith that man-made carbon emissions will produce a hotter climate and causing natural disasters.  Their insistence that we can be absolutely certain that this will come to pass is based not on science, but on faith.

While our country faces a $20 trillion national debt, progressives want to waste our tax dollars on climate change

Fortunately, Trump has promised to deal with the U.S. national debt by growing the economy and getting rid of government waste. Global warming programs are the first thing he should eliminate.

God Bless.
