Joe Biden said the United States will sign on to a United Nations-backed fund to pay reparations to developing countries supposedly worst-effected by fictional climate change.
Biden reportedly plans to divvy $1 billion from American taxpayers.
While the Biden Administration intends to rob working-class Americans, China will contribute nothing to fight the non-existent climate crisis.
The fund, negotiated at the UN’s COP27 Summit, was originally known as a ‘loss and damage’ fund and had been blocked by previous administrations.
Ultimately, Biden expects to face opposition from the Republican-controlled House, which would have to approve any funding.
Joe Biden agreed to pay $1 billion in climate reparations to foreign nations for climate change.
The world's largest polluter, China, will pay $0.
American taxpayers deserve better!

Are we supposed to pretend that it isn't obvious that Biden's $1 billion in climate reparations is just going to get funneled back to Democrats and their campaigns?

“Climate reparations" are a slush fund for the well-connected at the expense of American workers.
We should have nothing to do with this scam.

Daily Mail reported:
The nations who’ll benefit from the funds are largely from Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and the South Pacific. They say they’re set to be worst-affected by rising sea levels and other weather extremes blamed on carbon emissions created by wealthier countries.
Last year, Biden was granted $1 billion to help developing countries tackle climate change, although it’s unclear if that cash will go into this fund.
The president also faces having his plans stymied by the GOP-majority house, which would have to approve any funding mooted by the White House.
There will be wrangles with fellow UN members over who pays what – which could well mean nothing gets done until after the next presidential election in 2024.
And if a Republican like GOP golden boy Ron DeSantis ends up winning the presidency, the fund could face being scrapped again.
Donald Trump famously pulled the US out of the 2015 UN Paris Accord on climate change, saying it represented a bad deal for America – with DeSantis known to share many of the 45th president’s views.
China – the world’s biggest polluter – wouldn’t have to contribute to any global fund, because it is still considered a developing nation, despite its vast wealth.
