Bummer: DOE Closes Oversees Hotcoldwetdry Office

For all of Trump’s faults, he’s been pretty good so far when dealing with ‘climate change’

Energy Department Closes Office Working on Climate Change Abroad

The Energy Department is closing an office that works with other countries to develop clean energy technology, another sign of the Trump administration’s retreat on climate-related activities after its withdrawal from the Paris agreement this month.

The 11 staff members of the Office of International Climate and Technology were told this month that their positions were being eliminated, according to current and former agency employees. The office was formed in 2010 to help the United States provide technical advice to other nations seeking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The small office also played a lead role preparing for the annual Clean Energy Ministerial, a forum in which the United States, China, India and other countries shared insights on how best to promote energy efficiency, electric vehicles and other solutions to climate change. (snip)

The office is the only one in the Energy Department to have “climate” as part of its name.

The office played an important role, for instance, in helping India develop its own lighting efficiency standards and start a program to purchase LED lamps in bulk for consumers.

Why can’t India pay for these programs themselves? Why is it necessary for the US government to spend this money?

    trump doesn’t trump those tricky devices like rulers and thermometers

    It’s tough being a Science Denier in modern times.

    How much is being spent? You couldn’t bother to find out?

    Another of your posts pointed out that the US is spending $3 billion A MONTH spinning our wheels in Afghanistan and you support us spending MORE there, while CUTTING government oversight of the scheme. Maybe Mr. Mueller should look into how much money trump/Flynn/Mattis/Manafort/Eric/Ivanka/Jr. are making getting Americans killed there.

    You asked why doesn’t India pay for their own energy programs themselves? Why don’t you ask why Afghanistan doesn’t pay for their own political programs?

    We get it. Your objective is not to inform but to misinform, to mislead and additionally to inspire hatred, just as Jesus commanded .

    You’re part of the Con Man scheme to keep those less informed than you (allah help us!) angry at your common, natural “enemies”, i.e., gays, Blacks, libs, Dems, college-educated, literate, Mexicans, Muslims, women, non-whitey, non-Xtian etc. The only minority you support is southern white men who have sex with animals (which, technically speaking, may not be a minority in some neo-Confederate states).

    Every post is rife with name-calling and lies (just like your mentor, the odious jimhoft of the Gateway Pudendum). Misinform and Enrage. A more apt name than Pirate’s Cove.
