Hate to bust your bubble jimmy, but once again, your numbers originate in lalaland as do your arguements. Here's reality from CBO:
In response to your request, this memorandum compiles information on federal funding from FY2008 through FY2012 for climate change activities of various departments and agencies, as presented by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and by the individual departments and agencies where noted. CRS deferred to these OMB and department and agency sources, as comparable comprehensive information on funding allocated for climate change activities across departments and agencies is not
broken out in all cases for each relevant program or activity in annual appropriations bills and the accompanying committee reports.
Some of the OMB or agency sources are incomplete or may report inconsistent data, as explained below.
As such, the amounts in the following tables likely represent an underestimate of federal funding for the period, perhaps on the order of tens of millions of dollars (i.e., not billions). Information is not available for all programs for all years, as explained below.
In sum, OMB and agencies have identified approximately $70 billion available to federal agencies from FY2008 through FY2012 for climate change activities. The large majority – about 80% -- has funded technology development and deployment, mostly through the Department of Energy (DOE). More than one third of the identified funding was enacted in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-5). Tables in the memorandum detail funding by agency in terms of budget authority. 1 Funding information is provided for each of the four major federal initiatives to address climate change:
1. the Global Change Research Program;
2. the Climate Change Technology Program;
In Response to Re: Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists:
Yes, by all means, FOLLOW the money...
