United Nation’s members serenade outgoing ‘Climate Queen’ Christiana Figueres to ABBA as she steps down as Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Bonn Climate Change Conference

Lyrics:
You can dance, you can jive, having the job of your life
See that woman, watch her lead, diggin’ the Climate Queen.

Denmark and the mood is low
Climate hopes have taken a blow
We had to come together, to get back in the swing
You came in to give us that zing.

Cancun was the next year’s stop
You and Patricia made it hop
Impossible is not a fact, as you made it clear
It’s an attitude, based on fear

Your spirit made us cheer.
You are the Climate Queen, best there’s been, you reign supreme
Climate Queen, moving us to a future clean.
You can dance, you can jive, having the job of your life

See that woman, watch her lead, diggin’ the Climate Queen.

Then in Paris, the game was on
You made sure the job was done
Fighting for ambition, a future for our kids
You made us raise our bids
We are so glad you did.

You are the Climate Queen, best there’s been, you reign supreme
Climate Queen, moving us to a future clean.
You can dance, you can jive, having the job of your life

See that woman, watch her lead, diggin’ the Climate Queen.

Climate Queen: Abba takes over UN talks in Figueres tribute – Tears, applause and a 1970s Swedish pop group dominated UN climate talks on Thursday, as as envoys and civil society lined up to pay tribute to the departing Christiana Figueres. Executive Secretary of the global talks since 2010 and credited with guiding 195 countries to approve the Paris Agreement on climate change in December 2015, the Costa Rican leaves her post in July. New Zealand diplomat Jo Tyndall described her as a “pocket rocket, a small car with a powerful motor… a pint-sized hot chick,” one of many warm speeches on a relaxed final day of two weeks of talks in Bonn.

UN climate chief Christiana Figueres steps down – Lamented U.S. democracy as ‘very detrimental’ – Sought ‘centralized transformation’ – Lauded one-party ruled China for ‘doing it right’ on climate – Climate Depot Statement: ‘Figueres legacy will be one of central planning, limiting development for the world’s poor, creation of climate slush funds, appeals to climate claims and ‘solutions’ that would make medieval witch accusers blush. The world can smile today that Figueres will soon be out of power.’

 


  • OMG, Marc! I can’t believe I watched the whole thing! Not only were these unnamed serenading sycophants totally off-key – which in hindsight seems somewhat appropos – but also Figueres succeeded in living up to (down to?!) a definition she had inspired almost two years ago i.e. Tinkerbell-cubed (see, for example The United Nations: “a shadow of its intended nature”)

    Sometimes in subsequent posts/comments I slipped up and dubbed her “twinkletoes”. In this instance, Figueres fits both bills … to a T;-)

    Methinks Abba may be looking at copyright infringement proceedings.
