Oops: Sweet, Sweet, Redistributed Climate Finance Not Reaching Most Vulnerable

I know, I know, you’re shocked that all that pledged, donated, and forcibly taken climate money isn’t making it where it’s supposed to go

Analysis shows climate finance not reaching most vulnerable

People in some of the world’s poorest countries are receiving as little as $1 each a year to help them cope with the impacts of the climate crisis, despite rich countries’ promises to provide assistance.

Climate finance is intended to help developing countries cut greenhouse gases and protect their people from the consequences of climate breakdown, and forms a core part of the Paris agreement. Rich countries pledged more than 10 years ago to provide $100bn (£77m) a year to the poor by 2020, but it is not certain that these commitments are being met. (snip)

A new analysis of climate finance by the charity WaterAid suggested that existing climate finance is not reaching the poorest and most vulnerable, who are likely to be worst affected by the climate crisis. The charity’s report found that half of all countries receive less than $5 per person per year in climate finance.

Yemen received about $1.17 for each of its people per year on average between 2010 and 2017, WaterAid’s analysis found, despite the country being ranked at 29th in the world’s most vulnerable to the impacts of climate breakdown.

The figure for Sudan was $1.33, despite it being the seventh most vulnerable country in the world. Angola, another of the 50 most vulnerable, received $1.58 per person per year over the period, and the Central African Republic – 16th in the most vulnerable ranking – received $1.61 per person per year.

So, where’s it going? The article really doesn’t say. And why aren’t Warmists running out and giving their own money, and time, to help these nations, rather than cruising around in their fossil fueled vehicles for a 1 mile trip to the grocery store?

    So, where is the money going? Well, I have some suspicions…….

    Of course other countries aren’t meeting their obligation. They were expecting the US to pay it for them. This is why they are so pissed that Trump saw the Paris slush fund for what it was and told them to stuff it.

    “Yemen received $1.17 per person” while Sudan received $1.33. You notice the country i.e. the government received this grift, not the actual people.

    Why? Well Teach probably got the same reason that YOU chose not to join the military after 9/11
    Or the same reason that YOU do not open carry every day nor
    The same reason that YOU are not going every free minute to protest in front of abortion clinics
    You always seem to criticize others on the left for lack of commitment, where is yours?

      This is one of the posts demonstrating a lack of any thinking I can remember seeing in my life.

      Why? Well Teach probably got the same reason that YOU chose not to join the military after 9/11

      I have no idea what this means. Apparently in John’s mind, the only way to support the military is to join it.

      Or the same reason that YOU do not open carry every day nor

      John has always had the idea that choosing to exercise a right or not is the same thing as not supporting that right. Under his theory, if one supports the First Amendment, they should be required to talk incessantly. On the other hand, since he and other liberals don’t support the First Amendment, you’d think he’d show his commitment to his beliefs by being silent. That’s his “thinking” at least.

      The same reason that YOU are not going every free minute to protest in front of abortion clinics

      If John truly believes that protesting against the killing of children means a 24/78 requirement, it stands to reason that if he supports killing kids he should be out murdering children on playgrounds, in schools, etc. Anywhere there is a kid, John’s logic is that he should kill it.

      You always seem to criticize others on the left for lack of commitment, where is yours?

      Most sane people will realize that it is not so much a lack of commitment that is criticized, but a blatant hypocrisy from the hateful left. They want people to act a certain way and yet they will not act that way in their own lives.

      But that is hate for you. It blinds you to stupidity and hypocrisy.

      Then again, all the left has is hate.

      And what was your outfit?

      44235th Secret Squirrel Battalion? 98th Rump Rangers?

      And what do you do? Get paid minimum wage to be incoherent on the Interwebz?

  5. I’m pretty surprised to hear that the Sudanese and Yemenis are getting anything at all. The whole point of this was to make connected insiders wealthy. Nothing was ever supposed to trickle down that far. Peasants would just squander it on something worthless, like extra food.

    All H&R Blockwiz has is nothing.

    I’ve got the side that will take everything this fall.

    That’s more than what you have.
