There were two big ticket action items that, while not officially on the agenda, were still center stage. In fact they were all the green press talked about.
Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is in the news complaining about U.S. President Donald Trump not sending more U.S. taxpayer dollars to the UN Green Climate Fund.
The Green Climate Fund is just one of many reasons why President Trump should honor his campaign promise and withdraw the U.S. from the UN's Paris climate agreement.
Week one of COP 21, the UN climate conference in Paris, concluded with the adoption of a draft “outcome.”
Climate funding is a major sticking point at the UN climate talks in Paris. An Obama Administration official would not rule out shutting down the government over the UN "Green Climate Fund." If climate funding is not made part of a binding treaty, future U.S. Administrations will be free to cut off the funds at any time.
Developing nations are only in the UN climate pact for the cash. What if there is none?
The deeper you look into the UN climate process the more ludicrous it becomes.
