Breaking News! UN Climate Conference President Resigns!
COPENHAGEN, Dec 16 (Reuters) – Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen will replace Danish minister Connie Hedegaard as president of the U.N. climate talks for a final summit session, the United Nations said on Wednesday.
“With so many heads of state and government having arrived it’s appropriate that the Prime Minister of Denmark presides,” Hedegaard told the 193-nation meeting.
“However, the Prime Minister has appointed me as his special representative and I will thus continue to negotiate the…outcome with my colleagues,” she said.
She said the move was procedural. Separately, Hedegaard has been criticised by African nations for favouring rich nations in the negotiations.
In October, Denmark’s chief climate negotiator Thomas Becker resigned. Becker was described as the right hand of president Connie Hedegaard.
A little trouble in the tropical waters of the Global Warmers? It would seem so. Perhaps the fear of prosecution for fraud is becoming a very real issue.
And just yesterday Al Gore was caught in a huge lie.
And climate-gate head hoax master Phil Jones is nowhere to be found in Copenhagen. Strange, that.
