US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, announced on Thursday that the country will join the fund of 100 billion dollars a year from 2020 to developing countries if there is an agreement in Copenhagen, although she didn´t say how much they will contribute with, or how much of that money will be publically or privately sourced.

Friends of the Earth US President, Erich Pica, welcomed the decision of his country to finally speak of contributing with long term finance to face the climate crisis, but stated that the proposal announced by Clinton is “hollow”.

“The amount falls far short of what the United Nations says is needed. Inadequate funding will condemn the poorest to languish in poverty while the world suffers from climate chaos. In addition, loans and private investments must not substitute for public money, and it is unclear how much of this package is public” said Pica, according to a press release issued by Friends of the Earth International.

On Thursday, Real World Radio interviewed Karen Orenstein, from Friends of the Earth US, who has been following closely the negotiations, especially in terms of the role of her country. She blames the US of blocking all ways towards an agreement with “real” solutions.

Orenstein also said that Barack Obama´s policy with reference to climate change is “substantially” the same that the policy of his predecessor, George Bush.
