Trump to spend climate change fund on global warming speed-up

I swear that there must be staffers in the Trump White House tasked with taking already bad and unpopular 'policies' -  - like Trump's hamstringing the world's fight against climate change by having the US pull out of the Paris climate accord - - and making it worse by, say, diverting a United Nation fund set up to battle climate change and make the air cleaner into the construction of more climate-altering coal-fired power plants.
The U.S. will seek to use a United Nations fund designed to aid nations hard hit by climate change to promote the construction of coal-fired power plants around the world.
The U.S. already donated $1 billion to the so-called Green Climate Fund, and it can now use its seat on that board to advance American-energy interests globally, a White House official said.
Smoke stacks from a factory. 
That kind of in-your-face/bad-health inducing perversity - - sort of like withdrawing health care coverage for millions of Medicaid patients or pre-existing condition treatments people with birth defects (take a bow, Ron Johnson) - - requires some forethought.
