Thursday, June 15, 2012—From The Washington Free Beacon:
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.

Iran, with 16 separate CDM projects, brings in around 4.8 million CERs, worth about $26 million, every year, despite numerous U.N. sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
If the Climate Alarmists are right, then Saving All Of Life On Earth does justify supporting horrendous human rights abuses and mass murders around the world. But does it justify aiding a nihilistic regime bent on acquiring nuclear weapons while idolizing suicide, a regime that has stated that it would be better for its own nation to die in a nuclear reprisal than to allow other nations to live? The logic is not inevitable.
But if, as the great weight of evidence tells us, the Climate Alarm is nothing but an excuse for a worldwide power grab by people who need a Cause of Great Importance, then there is no justification at all for giving these evil governments so much as a bronze groat, much less millions of dollars.
The Dictator's Club called the UN brings to mind a verse from Sweeney Todd. We can't claim that Mr. Sondheim will approve of its use, but this is political commentary.
And the vermin of the world inhabit it
And its morals aren't worth what a pig could spit
And it goes by the name of ...
Turning beauty into greed and filth; I too
Have sailed the world and seen its wonders,
For the cruelty of men is as wondrous as Peru.
But there's no place like ...
