If House Republicans have their way, the U.S. may sever its fiscal support for the United Nations ‘ climate group, reflecting the last lingering effects of the Climate-gate scandal that shook climate science and wobbled the world’s confidence in the theory that man’s actions are causing the planet to rapidly warm.
Wrapped into the many amendments recently passed by the House of Representatives — a total of $60 billion in spending cuts that the president called a “nonstarter” — was one by Republican Missouri Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer that would prohibit $13 million in taxpayer dollars from going to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  (IPCC), the group whose occasional missteps have been the source of countless confrontations among climate scientists over the past year.
And sources tell FoxNews.com he plans to push that issue — a movement labeled “defund the IPCC” by climate-change skeptics — regardless of what happens to the larger package of amendments.
“The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  is an entity that is fraught with waste and fraud, and engaged in dubious science, which is the last thing hard-working American taxpayers should be paying for,” Luetkemeyer said in a public statement when he announced the bill.
