Here’s the truest point I’ve heard a politician make about the Cancun global warming conference. UKIP’s Paul Nuttall mockingly congratulates fellow European politicians – just back from the conference – on ensuring that dictators will get more Mercedes cars and private jets.
How will this happen? Well, as Louise Gray reported, the delegates promised to pour £60 billion annually from 2020 into a “green fund” to help poor countries adapt to floods and droughts. Nuttall reckons, quite plausibly, that the fund will be diverted into dictator’s pockets – which is what happens to much of our existing foreign aid budget.'
