UN: Hooray for disasters!

March 9, 2014

They make me look good!

Devastating extreme weather including recent flooding in England, Australia’s hottest year on record and the US being hit by a polar vortex have a “silver lining” of boosting climate change to the highest level of politics and reminding politicians that climate change is not a partisan issue, according to the UN’s climate chief.

Christiana Figueres said that it was amoral for people to look at climate change from a politically partisan perspective, because of its impact on future generations….

Figueres said: “There’s no doubt that these events, that I call experiential evidence of climate change, does raise the issue to the highest political levels. It’s unfortunate that we have to have these weather events, but there is a silver lining if you wish, that they remind us is solving climate change, addressing climate change in a timely way, is not a partisan issue.”

“Because when you get caught out lying about the climate as often as I do, it’s a relief to be able to lie about the weather for a change. And don’t worry about all the dead people — I’ll put up a statue to them when I achieve world domination.”
