Amidst a gathering for the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF), Joe Biden revealed Thursday that another $1 billion in U.S. money will be forked over to the United Nations for its Green Climate Fund (GCF).
This investment by the White House means the total amount of American taxpayer dollars spent on the GCF, a U.N. initiative that pushes so-called green technologies, especially in poor countries, to $2 billion.
A ‘FACT SHEET’ produced by the White House noted that Biden is also calling for another $500 million from Congress to bolster the Amazon Fund, a sum of money overseen by the Brazilian Development Bank that is claimed to safeguard the Amazon Rainforest.
“GCF welcomes President Biden’s announcement of a significant contribution from the United States,” the fund’s interim executive director, Henry Gonzalez, stated in a press release. “This money will provide urgently needed climate finance for the most vulnerable countries in the world. The [funding] will increase the resilience of populations in Least Developed Countries, protect Small Island Developing States threatened by climate change, and support the transition to low-emission, climate-resilient development around the world.”
A notable backer of the GCF is John Kerry, who Reuters describes as the U.S. climate envoy. When he was promoting the initiative in April 2021, Kerry reportedly promised that Joe Biden’s request for around $1.2 billion to carry out the plan “is just the beginning of what we intend to do.”
Kerry is infamous for being a long-time climate hoaxer — he claimed in 2009 that all of the Arctic’s ice would melt completely in 2013.
The climate envoy’s phony allegation was made in the form of a Washington Post op-ed and in the U.S. Senate.

This news comes as the Environmental Protection Agency is working on setting strict regulations for new cars and trucks through 2032 in a plan to force consumer adoption of electric vehicles. Currently, the White House hopes to have an emissions-free power sector by 2035, with emissions sliced by at least 50% come 2030.
Similar energy initiatives to supposedly reduce emissions are also underway in the European Union, per Reuters.
