The last UN Climate Change Summit took place in Doha, capital of Qatar. By choosing this venue, did the UN wish to reward Qatar for its energy and environmental policies?
Qatar has by far the world’s highest output of CO2 per capita. Good choice. No wonder that delegates achieved nothing after getting chauffeured around from one air-conditioned building to another. More hot air was produced in a country that has enough of it already.
This is even more ironic than UNESCO’s choice of Iran as the venue of the World Philosophy Day in 2010.
