OBAMA’S “ARE-YOU-KIDDING-ME” GIVEAWAY: $1 BILLION TO PRESERVE TROPICAL FORESTS OVERSEAS…

Obama’s at it again, spending what we don’t have to the tune of $1B, AND IT’S NOT EVEN FOR OUR OWN COUNTRY!!!  He is so dispicable, I can’t even look at his mug on TV anymore.  When I see his image, I quickly change the channel.  If only changing who’s in office was that easy and quick!
 
The difference between Bush and Obama…
 
Bush tortured terrorists, and gave American citizens tax breaks; Obama is torturing American citizens with tax hikes, and saving terrorists from torture…

U.S. gives $1 billion for forests

By Juliet Eilperin

Breaking news: U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsak announced Wednesday the United States would provide $1 billion over the next three years to preserve tropical forests overseas.

At the same time, leaders of the African Union and the European Union announced they are close to reaching agreement on how much rich countries should provide poor ones in a long-term finance package to cope with climate change.

Ethiopia’s Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has proposed developing countries accept a $10 billion short-term finance package, as long as it’s followed by a commitment to providing a long-term package that would reach $100 billion by 2020.

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt and Zenawi held a joint press conference Wednesday afternoon, where Zenawi said his group had made the offer as a way of "breaking the logjam" at the U.S. talks.

Andrew Deutz, Director of International Climate Policy for The Nature Conservancy, said in the statement the group hopes the U.S. announcement spurs commitments from other countries to "address the global challenge of deforestation."

"These types of announcements are exactly what’s needed to build trust for an ambitious outcome by the end of the week," Deutz said.
