UN: U.S. Can’t Avoid Paying Climate Reparations Or Something

Well, sure we can. Where does the United Nations get a giant percentage of its funding from now? Perhaps we can just take that money and give it to nations affected by ‘climate change’ U.S. citizens

U.N. Warns U.S. It Cannot Escape Paying Punitive Climate ‘Reparations’

The United States was warned Wednesday by the United Nations it cannot avoid compensating poorer nations hit by climate change, despite Donald Trump honoring his election promise of leaving the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

Delegates and observers at the COP25 negotiations in Madrid told AFP that Washington seeks a change to the U.N. climate convention that could release it from punitive “loss and damage” funding for developing nations which is predicted to run into the billions of dollars.

Under the bedrock U.N. climate treaty, adopted in 1992, rich nations agreed to help developing countries prepare for unavoidable future climate impacts — the twin pillars of “mitigation” and “adaptation”.

A new mechanism was established in 2013, but with damage estimates climbing, there is no agreement on where the money might come from or even if it should be paid, although the U.S. is constantly the target of calls for financial reparations because it is rich, successful and a dominant world economic force.

Well, here’s an idea: the U.S. will no longer provide any aid to developing nations, we’ll just give a portion to the “carbon fund” and let the U.N. dole it out. And wash our hands of the problem. And the problems of the 3rd world nations. They’re all good with that, right? Or, do they think they can shake us down for both? Plus force the U.S. to take uneducated and skill-less refugees?

As Breitbart News reported, the financial impositions being considered include U.N.-administered taxes on financial transactions, international air travel and fossil fuels.

You want a reason to vote Trump? That money comes out of your pocket if a Democrat gets elected.

    The Whole point of Kyoto and Paris was to collect money from America and distribute it to everyone else. Of course everyone but us signed up for that.

    The US pays approximately 25% of the UN budget, mostly supporting peacekeeping forces. It costs the US under 4 billion a year, or 0.1% of the US budget.

    TEACH asks: “You want a reason to vote Trump?” LOL. To whom are you preaching? This crowd will vote for Trump regardless of what he does.

      A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon you’re talking about real money.

      Yes, because he will always act in the best interests of the American people.

      And, since Hypocrite Hare is so worried about the deficit, he should be eager to cut wherever possible. And, of course, another place where money is being wasted is the stupid impeachment farce.

    • Nighthawk says:

      Yeah, 193 nations and we pay 1/4 of their budget? Sounds fair.

      With every post you just show that you still have no clue why Trump got elected.

      Even funnier is that you just can’t admit that Trump is doing a hell of a job. Apparently he does have a magic wand to bring jobs back to the US. He proved that less than 2% GDP growth was NOT the new normal.

      But you bitter clingers keep pushing for impeachment, keep screaming about how awful he is, keep wallowing in your TDS and you assure that Trump wins in 2020 AND probably another just like him after.

        Well, maybe, in a way: the US also has about ¼ of total world gross domestic product! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yes.gif

    Let’s cut off the power to the UN compound. Let’s yank all their vehicles off the streets of NYC. Let’s prevent any of their private jets from flying into US airspace. Let they use sailboat and candles made of recycled veggie oil. They can apply those savings to their own people.

    Imagine all the CO2 emissions we’ll prevent.

      Have you ever been to the United Nations building? It’s a f(ornicating) disaster, mid 1950s construction and architecture, no style, no class, and it just plain looks shabby, as though maintenance has bee neglected. Better to bulldoze the place, ’cause that real estate in Turtle Bay is worth billions. Bulldoze it, then sell it to private developers, and let the UN, without the US, move to The Hague.
