The Biden administration is under scrutiny for sending numerous officials, including Vice President Kamala Harris and several Cabinet members, to the United Nations climate summit in Dubai.

Senator John Barrasso criticized the use of taxpayer funds for in-person attendance, questioning why virtual participation was not utilized.

He accused the delegation of hypocrisy and listed a series of questions regarding the costs and carbon emissions of the travel. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

“A significant number of Biden bureaucrats will be traveling across the globe on the taxpayer’s dime, all in an effort to advocate for these anti-fossil fuel initiatives,” Barrasso wrote.

“They will, of course, utilize fossil fuels throughout their travels while ballooning their own carbon footprint.”

“Even though COP28 has established a dedicated virtual platform to foster online participation, federal climate crusaders will gleefully spend the hard-earned money of the American people on airfare, hotels, and fine dining as they participate in person,” he added.

“Taxpayers will not and should not stand for this hypocrisy. This pattern of behavior suggests a troubling disconnect between public duty and the prudent use of taxpayer funds,” Barrasso’s said.

“As stewards of public funds, it is imperative that federal agencies demonstrate consistency in their actions and policies, especially in matters related to environmental responsibility and fiscal accountability.”

Despite the criticism, the U.S. delegation has been active at the conference, committing to initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat global warming.

John Kerry emphasized the need for faster and more substantial global efforts to address the climate crisis.

“It’s safe to say that there literally will be hundreds of initiatives that will be announced, many of them coming from the United States, but also many coming from other parts of the world, and I think it’s going to be a very exciting presentation of a global effort that is taking place, even though it’s not happening fast enough or big enough yet,” Kerry said.

“What is very clear to us – and we will be pushing this the next two weeks that we are here negotiating – we have to move faster,” Kerry added.

“We have to be much more seized of this issue all around the planet. There’s too much business as usual still.”
