Nations pledge $9.8 billion to global climate fund; US opts out

The Green Climate Fund said Friday that rich countries have pledged $9.8 billion to help poor nations tackle climate change. Yannick Glemarec, the executive director of the Green Climate Fund, said 27 countries announced contributions by the end of a two-day conference. The Climate Action Network castigated both the US and Australia for refusing to pitch in.

How dare America not contribute to green housing in Mongolia?!?! On a more serious note, this is literally how the mafia behaves. It's the climate mafia, and they're shaking people down for protection money.

Why is there an obligation or responsibility for the US or Australia to donate money? Have the nations on that continent donate.

What buisness does the US have in helping nations which constantly talk shit about it? If they 2ant help, then be polite and fair; instead of blaiming the worlds problems on us.

So, the other 180+ countries only put up 10 billion? Seems like MOST of the world isn't taking this scam seriously.
