AEA Issues Statement on Green Climate Fund Vote

WASHINGTON – American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement after the Senate Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to funnel $500 million to the UN’s green climate slush fund:

“It’s disappointing that the Senate Appropriations committee has capitulated to the Obama administration’s climate agenda. The green climate slush fund is a political stunt to help politicians in developed countries feel good about themselves while their policies raise energy costs and consign millions of people around the world to poverty.

“Republicans have largely pledged to fight back against the president’s agenda, so it is inexcusable that they would even consider green lighting this blatant misuse of taxpayer funds. Even more appalling is the fact they did this through a voice vote to protect those who voted for it from scrutiny. This is exactly the type of action that has voters so upset with the established political class on both sides of the Atlantic. We’re confident that Majority Leader McConnell, Majority Whip Cornyn, and the rest of the Senate Leadership will swiftly announce their objection to this vote and will work with Speaker Ryan and the House Leadership to prevent the president from advancing his harmful climate agenda.”
