Another of Julie Bishop’s handbags to the head for the moonbats at the UN.
Bishop should really go much, much further and tell the Pacific Island scroungers riding the climate bandwagon where to get off, especially since flooding is far more a result of geological sinking rather than sea level rise, and that sea level rise is probably mostly natural rather than burning fossil fuels, but it’s a start:
Australia will continue to directly pay for climate change adaptation in vulnerable South Pacific island nations through its aid budget rather than donate to a UN Green Climate Fund designed for the same purpose, the foreign minister said Friday ahead of traveling to climate talks in Peru.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said governments should judge for themselves whether bilateral action to reduce the impact of climate change on developing countries was a more efficient use of aid money than donating through the UN.
“The Green Climate Fund is about supporting developing countries build resilience to climate change. Australia is already doing that through our aid program,” Bishop told The Associated Press before leading the Australian delegation to Lima for a UN climate summit.
“From my experience, bilateral work is able to customise responses when we’re working directly with another partner country,” she said. (source)
Send any dollars to the UN, and a large chunk of it will be syphoned off to pay for the rent seekers at the IPCC and WMO, rather than going to its intended beneficiaries.
Shock. A government that thinks for itself rather than bowing and scraping to the unelected fraudsters at the UN.
