Responding to the president’s pledge to give $3 billion in taxpayer funds to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer’s (MO-03) first piece of legislation he introduced in the 114th Congress would prevent American’s dollars from being used for any of the U.N.’s global warming schemes.

“For far too long, American tax dollars have been sent to the United Nations to produce controversial science and feel-good conferences. Now the president is pledging to pony up billions more to implement these ill-gotten policies,” Luetkemeyer said. “American taxpayers should not foot the bill for an unelected organization that is fraught with waste. The president has already spent an estimated $120 billion on climate change policies since coming to office in 2008. I hope my legislation makes it to the floor quickly to ensure that no future taxpayer dollars are spent to advance the United Nations’ global warming agenda.”

Luetkemeyer has introduced legislation since he’s been in Congress to prevent taxpayers dollars from being used to fund the UN International Panel on Climate Change, Framework Convention on Climate Change, and the Green Climate Fund.
