With just three days until President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, the State Department on Tuesday announced a half-billion-dollar contribution to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund, part of $3 billion the United States has promised to the fund under President Obama. That’s on top of another $500 million transferred last year, meaning the United States has now sent $1 billion to the fund, or a third of the president’s pledge.
"Days Before Trump’s Inauguration, State Dept. Sends $500 Million to United Nations Climate Fund" is from the January 17, 2017 Energy and Environment section of The Washington Post. It was written by Chris Mooney and narrated by Sam Scholl.
