Video Interview: Activists & the UN Climate Process
In a 23-minute interview, filmed in the UK last month, I talk about activists and the UN’s climate process.
Anti-Democratic Green Activism
If the public is to be represented at climate negotiations by someone other than their own government, it has a right to elect and dismiss those representatives.
Independent Greenpeace? Never Mind
Greenpeace makes a show of rejecting government and corporate money. But it’s close pals with the WWF – which gets enormous funding from exactly those sources.
The Creepy Climate Conference
After frisking us for explosives, the UN repeatedly assures us that we’re good people.
Today’s Climate Summit Press Conferences
The WWF utilized UN press conference facilities yesterday. It’s doing so again today.
What a Nasty, Scandalously Rigged System
Activist media events are a shockingly institutionalized part of UN climate negotiations.
Initial Dispatch: the Warsaw Climate Summit
If the UN were serious about a new climate treaty, it would turf the activists. They are a distraction no one needs.
Inside the Warsaw Climate Summit
Obama’s imperious behaviour at the 2009 climate summit is a key reason negotiations have failed dismally in recent years.
