Talking 27 nations pledge nearly $10B to fight climate change - 10-25-2019, 04:04 PM

27 nations pledge nearly $10B to fight climate change, U.S. not among them

Wonder how much more time we have now?? LMAO

The U.S. did not participate in an international climate fund Friday in which wealthy countries pledged nearly $10 billion to assist poorer nations in combatting climate change.

The Green Climate Fund, which organized the effort, said in a statement that 27 countries combined to pledge $9.8 billion by the end of a two-day conference in Paris later this year.

It said the resources “will help developing countries reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the negative effects of global warming, such as rising sea levels, record temperatures, prolonged drought, and more frequent and severe weather events.”

“We are honored by the global community’s confidence in the Fund’s ability to support countries and communities to raise and realize their climate ambitions,” said Yannick Glemarec, executive director of the Green Climate Fund.

“The coming years are critical as we empower our partners to innovate, accelerate and scale up climate investments that match the pace and urgency of the climate crisis," he continued.

However, the U.S. did not join the 27 nations in pledging any money, as President Trump

The Climate Action Network, which consists of more than 1,300 nongovernmental organizations, said in a statement that the U.S. and Australia, which also did not donate any money, have “turned their backs on the world’s poorest and have once again isolated themselves in global efforts to respond to the climate emergency."

Despite the absence of the two powers, the Green Climate Fund expressed optimism that it would be able to find supplemental resources.

“We will most likely be able to find additional resources” before the United Nations’ annual climate conference in December, Glemarec told The Associated Press.

The United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan and Sweden were this year’s top contributors to the fund. The total pledged this year surpasses the $9.3 billion announced at the Green Climate Fund’s previous pledging conference in 2014.

Existing investments supported by the Green Climate Fund are working to assist less developed countries, such as Rwanda, Kenya and Mongolia, with projects that seek to close energy gaps for the power deficient, assist in the transition to renewable sources of energy and boost the strength of water supplies.

They'd be better off spending the money to find bigfoot or research on where unicorns reside... Has the Lochness monster been found yet?


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

10 billion in "pledges'.

Not the actual cold hard cash.




In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

What happens when the citizens don't want to pledge? Will they accept someone taking a knee, or will they automatically go to prison?


Yes my custom cue also doubles as a light saber. You might say that it shoots lights out. You are now activated Agent 92395. Obtain the funds from Goldman Sachs and deposit into my Swiss account. This message will make you shit your pants in 5 seconds. Sev found it first.

27 nations pledge nearly $10B to fight climate change?

Seems it will cost much more to put this idiotic concept to bed.

They all display the classic tell of liars.

The story is in reverse order. Benefits first and negatives last.

Imagine putting $10B toward something worthwhile that has
a real payback.

Name it. Anything would be better. Even throwing the money
down a sewer.

Pledging is nothing. Let's see if they actually pay up. Let's check each ones account payables as well. 100% on those NATO payments?

Nothing like pissing away other people's money.
Leftists claim to worry about the planet being destroyed by climate change (in reality it's capitalism they hate) when it's THEM and their insane ideology that will accomplish that.

Yeah, that's some funny stuff! You probably have time. Your kids and grandkids? Not so much.


God bless each and every one of you

Might be time to rethink and sped somtime resolving real real problems, not make believe problems, like climate change & global warming. IMHO climate change has been going on as long as man has lived. It call the four seasons, winter, spring, summer, and last fall.

What next for the nut job enviorement aliet who worry about heathy eating, but breat the polluted air were they live.

Love the enviormantists who worry about how much gas, & oil people consume. But think noting of flying on a private jet, to a save the world conference, in some exotic places, with their wealthy nut job think a likes.
