The UN’s climate chief said on Friday she will step down in July, at the end of a six-year term, and praised governments for reaching a 195-nation deal in Paris in December to shift the world economy from fossil fuels to cleaner energies.

Christiana Figueres, a 59-year-old Costa Rican, said she would not accept any extension of her term as head of the Bonn-based UN Climate Change Secretariat after what she called the historic Paris Agreement.

“We now move into a phase of urgent implementation,” she wrote in a letter to governments, which agreed a goal in Paris to cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2100 by shifting from fossil fuels to renewable energy such as wind or solar power.

UN climate chief Christiana Figueres seeks ‘centralized transformation’ that is ‘going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’ – ‘The Industrial Revolution was also a transformation, but it wasn’t a guided transformation from a centralized policy perspective. This is a centralized transformation that is taking place because governments have decided that they need to listen to science. So it’s a very, very different transformation and one that is going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different’

    Was there any doubt that CAGW, in it’s desired state, is a “1 party rule” movement. They call that by many names most commonly, COMMUNISM.

    Global waming will cause blindness and hair to grow on you palms. Oh wait that’s pornography. Or was it what boys and girls do while watching pornography?

    Or it could be caused by global warming. The IPCC has requested more government funding to study this pornography pattern.

    The woman has no respect for democracy. She has no idea what it means when hundreds of thousands of people have been prepared to fight to their death in defence of freedom and democracy, so that today’s generation can enjoy it. Europe of all places should understand this. And this Marxist woman from South American (a continent hardly a bastion of democracy) should take a lesson in history and tyranny … and learn how countries that have no democracy have the worst human rights record and are inferior to democratic societies that are free to express and create.
