House GOP Goes After “Climate Change” Spending

This is obviously going to cause much freakout in Warmist World, where they expect Someone Else to pay up

(Bloomberg) A fiscal year 2015 budget plan developed by House Republicans aims to reduce funding for federal climate change programs.

The House fiscal 2015 budget resolution, released April 1, proposes to cut overall spending on the federal government’s climate change-related activities, mostly through reduced spending on overseas climate change activities. The budget resolution also recommends that federal agencies streamline climate change programs to eliminate “duplicative and unnecessary” spending.

The budget blueprint also recommends ending funding for renewable energy programs and expanding oil and gas development on federal land.

One thing to note: I have no problem with tax breaks/incentives for alternative energy, and if they are going to be offered for oil, coal, nuclear and natural gas, alternatives should get them. However, no subsidies, no more taxpayer funded boondoggles.

    without government incentives we would not have seen the HUGE drop in costs associated with wind and solar. Both are now equal to or close to equal in cost of fossil fuels. That is why countries like Germany Switzerland Israel are going green. Also it lessens the dependency on being hostage to the Mideast or Russia.

    Where do you think the government gets the money for these “incentives” which are not incentives but subsidies?

    That is why countries like Germany Switzerland Israel are going green.

    You would be right except for the fact that both countries are building coal fired power plants.

    Once again, you lose troll.
