I really dislike the U.N. and I loathe the global warmongering industry. So when these two things combine forces, well, I feel the need to go to the range and shoot the heck out of a target.
The U.N. of course has a carbon trading scheme. And guess who some of the lucky recipients of the payola are: Iran, North Korea, Sudan, China.
The U.N. is funneling millions of dollars worth of tradable carbon credits to corrupt nations worldwide, including Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Uzbekistan in an attempt to encourage clean energy projects in the developing world.
The U.N. Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) is defined in Article 12 of the Kyoto Protocol. Western European countries fund energy projects in the developing world in order to obtain Certified Emission Reduction credits (CERs), tradable credits that enable Europeans to count foreign emission reductions towards their own domestic emission reduction targets.

What constitutes clean energy to the U.N., I wonder? Could nuclear energy qualify? I sincerely hope that the U.N. hasn’t given money to Iran for their nuclear energy program, which of course is just for domestic energy purposes and would never be for a weapons program.
Because really if part of the money I pay in taxes goes to build a nuclear weapon in Iran that ends up killing me, I will be truly ticked.
And China seems to be learning the game well. “The Chinese government, an aggressive host for CDM projects, has manipulated the system, going so far as to re-open defunct factories in order to get Europeans to pay them to close them again.”
I can be very unproductive, too. Maybe the U.N. will pay me to not run a business. That has always seemed a critical flaw of carbon trading to me.
I think this is reason #143 to de-fund the U.N. and kick them the hell out of New York.
