Below is copy/paste from a post by AlexofTelamon. Link to the original is: http://boards.fool.com/house-votes-244-179-to-kill-ipcc-fund... on the Climate Change Board.

The U.S. House of Representatives today voted by a wide margin — 244-179 — to defund the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The $13-million cut, which garnered support from some Democrats, is part of the House’s budget for 2011. It now goes to the U.S. Senate. [1]

The amendment was introduced by Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, who made the case "that the Climategate emails discredit the UN’s claims to scientific integrity:"

Luetkemeyer: Scientists manipulated climate data, suppressed legitimate arguments in peer-reviewed journals, and researchers were asked to destroy emails, so that a small number of climate alarmists could continue to advance their environmental agenda.

Since then, more than 700 acclaimed international scientists have challenged the claims made by the IPCC, in this comprehensive 740-page report. These 700 scientists represent some of the most respected institutions at home and around the world, including the U.S. Departments of Energy and Defense, U.S. Air Force and Navy, and even the Environmental Protection Agency.
