Last Moves: Obama Gives Away $500 Million Without Approval
The program is called the ‘Green Climate Fund’, and it has received U.S. contributions of nearly $1 billion since 2016. The purpose of this fund is to aid in reducing carbon emissions within impoverished nations, by promoting clean energy usage. State Department spokesman John Kirby praised the initiative at a press conference:
“This administration has committed to this fund, in fact helped stand it up, establish it. And it is entirely in keeping with the work that we’ve been doing across the interagency to try to look for ways to stem the effects of climate change, and this fund helps other economies, other countries develop their own initiatives and help them deal with this.”
The incoming Trump administration and a basketful of Republican lawmakers disapprove the program, with some noting that support for the fund wasn’t specifically approved by Congress.
