Biden promises to give ‘$11 billion annually’ so other countries can fight climate change

In the wake of Republicans’ horrible performance in the midterm elections, President Joe Biden is doubling and tripling down on his climate change agenda, and it appears the only ones who can stop him are congressional Republicans.

During a speech delivered Friday at this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), the president called for the United States to spend a whopping $11 billion per year to fund climate change efforts in other countries.

He said specifically that he’s “committed to work with our Congress to quadruple U.S. support to climate finance and provide $11 billion annually by 2024, including $3 billion for adaptation.”


The key word in what he said was “Congress.”

“If Republicans win the House or Senate in the midterm elections, they could balk at sending billions of dollars to other countries for a climate agenda they oppose,” The Washington Post notes.

As a result, environmentalists “are now urging the White House and congressional Democrats to fight to include this funding in the next government spending bill in December.”

The trick could work, since congressional Republicans have thus far approved every single spending bill that Democrats have put together.

The bad news is that Republicans are currently poised to lose the Senate and could theoretically lose the House as well.

Dovetailing back to the president’s remarks, it provoked massive criticism from those Americans tired of their money being spent on other countries:

Under Biden’s tutelage, America has been throwing out money left and right, especially to Ukraine, but also to other countries as well.

The really bad news is that $11 billion, while a lot of money, is still a far cry from the TRILLIONS — yes, trillions — that the Biden administration would like to spend to achieve its otherwise impossible climate change goals.

For proof, one only need listen to the words of U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry.

“We desperately need the money,. There is not enough money in any country in the world to actually solve this problem. It takes trillions, and no government that I know of is ready to put trillilons into this on an annual basis. That’s what the scientists and the U.N. finance report say we must do — $2.5 to $4.5 trillion every year, for the next 30 years,” he said to CNN this past Thursday.

Like the president’s remarks, Kerry’s words also provoked backlash.


The irony is that while the Biden administration is ready and willing to spend exorbitant amounts of taxpayer money to resolve climate change, its members, including the president, are unwilling to make any personal sacrifices.

How so? Biden, Kerry, and virtually everybody else who attended COP27 arrived there using a gas-guzzling private jet instead of just taking a regular plane like everybody else. Conservative critics have long criticized this hypocritical habit:

But there’s been a twist this year. Far-left activists have also been protesting the use of private jets by COP27 attendees.

“Climate activists across Europe and the United States blocked entrances to airports Thursday to protest emissions from the aviation industry and call for a ban on private jets. Activists with three groups — Extinction Rebellion, Scientist Rebellion and Guardian Rebellion — descended on the airport terminals as part of organized actions in at least 13 countries,” according to NBC News.
