Well. Her wikipedia page says she is a "Global Climate Change Analyst." Pretty illustrious job for an anthropology degree. However, I thought a Ph.D in climatology would be a more appropriate background for such an important job. Silly me. At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism. So if we take her at her word, we can better understand why it’s appears to be a political debate, and not about science at all. And, indeed, it lines up as a political debate. All very interesting.
