New estimates show the federal government will spend nearly twice as much fighting global warming this year than on U.S. border security.
The White House reported to House Republicans that there are 18 federal agencies engaged in global warming activities in 2013, funding a wide range of programs, including scientific research, international climate assistance, incentivizing renewable energy technology and subsidies to renewable energy producers. Global warming spending is estimated to cost $22.2 billion this year, and $21.4 billion next year.
At the same time, the federal government will spend nearly $12 billion on customs and border enforcement this year.
Don’t worry. Next time there’s another terrorist attack, you can rest secure that the money was better spent teaching small children to be terrified of carbon.
Everyone has their priorities. We’re ignoring border security to fight the evil carbon fairies who are stealing all the world’s sunshine. It’s superserial.
