This is just unbelievable…how the UN and its various bodies are literally a law onto their own and now the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or UNFCCC, is now scrambling to get diplomatic and legal immunity.
Fox News, has discovered that among other things, top officials hope to use those immunities to avoid challenges in the future based on such things as:
- Possible conflicts of interest in their duties,
- Breaches of confidentiality in their work,
- Violations of the due process rights of those affected by UNFCCC actions,
- Making decisions or actions that are beyond the legal mandate of the organization or its subsidiaries.
A Brussels-based non-government organization named CDM-Watch, which says it is sponsored by the British government s Department for International Development and the International Climate Protection Initiative of the Federal Environment Ministry of Germany, among others, issued its own scathing critique of the Kyoto mechanism at a UNFCCC climate conference in Durban, South Africa, last December.
Among other things, CDM-Watch claimed that anywhere from 40 percent to 70 percent of CDM projects removed no additional carbon from the atmosphere, that CDM projects “have been known to cause social and environmental harm,” and that only the say-so of governments that host UNFCCC projects is involved in declaring whether the projects actually contribute to “sustainable development.”
