UN Climate chief: Communism fights global warming

As crazy as this sounds, bear in mind that four years ago Thomas Fried­man wanted the US “to be China for a day,” to “autho­rize the right solu­tions”:

UN Cli­mate Chief Praises Com­mu­nism, Dis­misses Democ­racy

The Costa Rican exec­u­tive sec­re­tary with the UN Con­ven­tion on Cli­mate Change, Christina Figueres, said in an inter­view on Jan­u­ary 13 that democ­racy is a weak sys­tem to fight global warm­ing, and instead praised China’s com­mu­nist model.

Even though the Asian power is one of the biggest emit­ters of car­bon diox­ide, the coun­try is “doing it right” in the fight against global warming.

Ms Figueres asserts that, being a Com­mu­nist dic­ta­tor­ship, China approves laws and reforms with less strug­gles than occur in the US repub­lic, where laws are debated.

(Unless, of course, Nancy insists that “you have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.” Maybe Ms Figueres is copacetic with that, but she could not be reached for comment.)

How right is China “doing it” in the fight against global warm­ing? The smog has become so thick in Bei­jing that the city’s nat­ural light-​starved masses have begun flock­ing to huge dig­i­tal com­mer­cial tele­vi­sion screens across the city to observe vir­tual sunrises.

But then, if you’re a high offi­cial at the UN, you may have risen to your exalted posi­tion by prov­ing that your head is buried far into a body cav­ity where the sun don’t shine, which prob­a­bly explains a lot.

On the other hand, should we thank China for the 8″ of global warm­ing that needs to be plowed off my driveway?
