Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, is the man who chaired the UN Climate Conference in Bali as well as the recent one in Poznan. In this remarkable Guardian video, George Monbiot charges him with lacking ambition for a global emissions deal, and takes him to task over expensive carbon offset schemes and his support for the US president, George Bush. Being the UN’s leading climate bureaucrat certainly isn’t an easy job, but do you really have to go as far as saying that Bush and his administration did do a great job in Bali in regards to dealing with climate change? What does that say about de Boer’s climate change views, leave alone his concerns for the planet? And what does it say about the UN’s leadership’s position and philosophy in regards to global warming?
