"The U.S. Has Made Big Promises. Where’s The Money?"

"The latest spending bill in Congress contains far less money to help developing countries than President Biden had pledged. That fits a pattern."

"It’s easy making climate promises. It’s harder keeping them.

Take note of the $1.5 trillion spending bill passed by the United States Congress last week. It included $1 billion in climate aid. That’s less than half of what the White House had requested and far short of the $11.4 billion that President Biden promised to deliver each year by 2024.

On Twitter, Rachel Kyte, a veteran climate diplomat and now dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University, called it “thin climate finance gruel.”"
