This week the United Nations begins two weeks of climate talks in Doha, Qatar. The primary goal of these meetings is to draw President Obama into accepting a redistribution plan designed extract money from the U.S. economy in the form of a global warming tax and doling out the cash to Third World nations.
“There will be expectations from countries to hear a new voice from the United States,” said Jennifer Morgan, director of the climate and energy program at the World Resources Institute in Washington.
The meeting in Qatar’s capital will focus on ramping up what is described as “climate financing for poor nations.” American leadership is considered crucial to these plans.
“We need the U.S. to engage even more,” said European Union Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard. “Because that can change the dynamic of the talks.”
