Surprise: Samantha Power Admits There’s A Problem In Spreading Out Climate Cash

First up, you know how much climate cultists say the U.S. owes?

Yeah, they’ll build airports, coal power plants (paying China to build them), and, surprise, corruption

Samantha Power acknowledges a hurdle for U.S. climate change funding for developing nations: corruption

Samantha Power, administrator of the United States Agency for International Development, said Monday that President Biden’s pledge to donate $3 billion annually to help developing nations adapt to climate change is a crucial commitment, but acknowledged that addressing rampant corruption in countries that will need those funds could prove challenging.

“I think it’s really important for donor countries to do what the United States has done, which is to elevate the anti-corruption agenda and mainstream it across development financing,” Power told Yahoo News in an interview just outside the U.N. Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26. “That is something that USAID is doing for the first time this year. President Biden is the first president to declare fighting corruption a national security imperative, and of course he considers the climate crisis a national security threat.” (snip)

Yet ensuring that billions in U.S. taxpayer funds and loan guarantees can find their way into the right hands and have the desired impact is made more difficult in places where corruption has become endemic.

“In the short term, you know, you have to have a lot of auditing, a lot of vetting, you have to work with trusted partners,” Power said. “USAID has relationships with developing countries that date back the entire 60 years of our history. We have missions in 80 countries. There is a sense of where money can be well spent, and where there’s risk of waste, fraud and other forms of abuse.”

I’m shocked that giving no-strings attached climate cash to 3rd world shitholes, er, developing nations, would be problematic. If we’re going to piss away money, let’s do it for American citizens.

    The United States, Europe, Russia and China have made pretty good lives for themselves at the expense of the GLOBAL climate which affects all nations. It’s an example of “The Tragedy of the Commons”.

    When a nuconservative drives his F250 over a group of cyclists, his insurance company is forced to compensate the injured parties without limitations on what the victims do with the compensation. Oldcons used to support responsibility.

    What conservatives support is America, and America first. We should pay exactly $0.00 to foreign countries.

      Whenever I want to know what conservatives think, I always consult a militant democratic party activist.

    Third world problems are caused by third world leaders so let them pay for it.

    • Professor hale says:

      Third world problems are caused by third world leaders AND PEOPLE so let them pay for it.

      Fixed it for ya. You’re welcome

      Of note, you don’t have to go to the Third world to find examples of this.
