UNEP promoting more Pachauri self-puffery?!

The decidedly disgraced former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Rajendra Pachauri, of whom one can only say that he must be a very slow learner – and a man of ever-changing stories – appears to have been off gallivanting around the globe, again. In no small measure, thanks to the co-operation…

UNEP recycling Pachauri … already?!

08/21/2015 – Please note update below. The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), as I have previously noted, is an ever-expanding unchartered body under the “leadership” of head honcho, Achim Steiner. One of the UNEP’s many, many “children” is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC); in this instance, IPCC parenthood is “shared” with another UN…

The windmills of my mind

There are some days, as I peruse the net, when it occurs to me that others must have been trans-versing the windmills of my mind! Yesterday – on the heels of the Pope’s pronouncements – just happened to be one of those days. As I’ve been assiduously assessing the current validity of snippets I’ve gathered…

Of United Nations’ voices, visions and values

A few days ago, I came across an article at the Gatestone Institute regarding the hot diplomatic water in which the Swedish Foreign Minister, Margot Wallström, found herself by failing to follow “the rules” (my bold -hro): […] Wallström’s criticism of “medieval” conditions in Saudi Arabia has caused great parts of the Muslim world to…

Ongoing silence from the CBC’s Pachauri front

By now, it is fairly common knowledge that Rajendra Pachauri – the “voice and face” of the oh-so-prestigious (but, as I had noted in my previous post according to its putative UN parents, “unchartered”) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – quite suddenly resigned from his far-too-long-held position as Chair.
