Where is the $1.4 billion going each year?

That is a very good question and one that seems very hard to get an answer to.

We do know that New Zealand contributes to the Green Climate Fund, one of those unaccountable United Nation offshoots providing high-paid, tax-free, meaningless jobs for those who think that they are saving the world.

Whaleoil has featured the Green Climate Fund before,?here and here.

Willis Eschenbach has run the numbers to check on what our millions are achieving: Quote:

To see just how bad the Green Climate Fund waste is, I took a look at the?Green Climate Fund ?mitigation? projects. These are the projects that are supposed to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted. To date, there have been 22 of them, with a total funding (Green Climate Fund + other public and private) of $US 6.9 billion dollars.

And according to their undoubtedly rosy predictions of CO2 saved by windmills, solar panels, building insulation, and the like, all of the projects together will save just under two gigatonnes (Gt) of CO2. Two billion tonnes! That?s a huge weight of CO2 ? but what does that all mean?

To understand it, let?s convert that to parts per million by volume (ppmv) of CO2. At present, we?re at 410 ppmv. Back in 1750, we were at about 278 ppmv of CO2.

And according to the UN IPCC, that increase in CO2 is claimed to have caused a temperature increase of 2.0787?C. The reason for the number of decimals will become apparent in a moment.

Now, to increase the atmospheric CO2 concentration by 1 ppmv, you need to emit about 16.8 Gt of CO2. The Green Climate Fund has avoided the emission of 2 Gt of CO2 ? so IF their estimates are correct, and IF we got all of the savings today, instead of 410 ppmv it would make the CO2 concentration 409.88 ppmv.

And in turn, this would make the claimed temperature increase caused by CO2 to be smaller ? at 2.0771?C.

So IF their estimates are correct, and IF we got all the savings today, and IF CO2 actually were the secret temperature control knob for the planet ? if all that were true,?the total of all the projects funded by the Green Climate Fund would cause a temperature reduction of ? wait for it ? 0.0015?C.

How small a temperature change is this? Well, if you walk up a flight of stairs, which is about ten feet (three metres) vertically, there is a temperature difference due to the change in altitude. How big a difference? Well, temperatures drop about one degree C for every hundred metres you go up in altitude. So in climbing a flight of stairs, you?d experience a temperature drop of about 0.03?C. Three-hundredths of one degree. Far too small to detect without special instruments.

But that?s still twenty times the possible temperature reduction from the $US 6.9 billion dollars wasted on these Green Climate Fund mitigation projects, a reduction which was only 0.0015?C. So we?ve spent $6.9 billion dollars for a POSSIBLE decrease of about the temperature difference from the floor to half-way up to your knee ? be still, my beating heart ?[…] End of quote.

You can sleep easy tonight, knowing that your hard earned tax dollars are making a real difference!

Let’s have another quick look at the picture above:
