Taxpayers foot $140K for 10 students’ ‘climate change journey’ to Australia

By Elizabeth Harrington | Washington Free Beacon

The National Park Service is spending $140,368 to fly 10 students to Sydney, Australia so they can experience a “climate change journey.”

The government announced last week they are paying for the group to attend the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s World Parks Congress, a global conference on conservation this Fall.

The funding will go towards “youth engagement” at the conference, which will feature a “Responding to Climate Change Stream” and a “Climate Change Journey” initiative. Ten students will be selected from Colorado State University (CSU) and universities in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Bamako, Mali to attend.
