The United Nation’s environment chief has resigned after being accused of ‘obscene CO2 hypocrisy’ for the expenses he claimed while flying around the world to give lectures on climate change.

Erik Solheim has stepped down from his role after an internal audit revealed that he had spent £390,000 on flights and hotel stays in just 22 months and had spent 80% of his time away from his base in Nairobi.

It is believed that Solheim was asked to resign by the UN secretary general, António Guterres and a UN staff union leader branded some of his expenses as ‘mind-blowing’.

Countries like the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden were so incensed at Solheim’s attitude that they were withholding tens of millions of dollars in funding to the UNEP, the UN’s environment programme, threatening a financial crisis.

    Let’s face it. This UN scammer is hardly alone in the fraud even at the UN

    Why are nations suddenly getting so concerned?

    A present from the ‘rapidly warming’ Arctic?

    Now if we could cull all the UN climate change departments and charge those in charge with fraud we might get somewhere. As it stands all this does is placate a few people to get the money tap turned on again.

    On the face of it, I don’t care. I had a job 30 years ago that required me to travel extensively. For all I know, travel may have been an important part of Solheim’s job. He didn’t create the irony having to travel to get people to stop traveling.

    That sounds like a bit more than just travelling to the next lecture venue. Over £4,000 a week.

    I assume he went first class. I didn’t.
