UN CLIMATE SUMMIT COSTS RISE WITH CO2 EMISSIONS, NOW EXCEED $150 MILLION, ECONOMIST SAYS
The cost of United Nations climate summits have ballooned in tandem with the carbon dioxide emissions officials are trying to restrain, according to estimates put together by environmental economist Richard Tol. Tol estimates that the costs U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change’s (UNFCCC) annual negotiations exceed $150 million in the last three years.

The U.N. is also convening an increasing number of climate meetings compared with the late 1990s, according to Tol. However, the costliest negotiations are the annual summits known as the Conference of the Parties (COP).“If anything, this is an underestimate,” Tol told The Daily Caller News Foundation. To estimate the annual costs of U.N. climate talks, Tol multiplied the number of meetings by the length of each meeting, the number of participants and travels costs and salaries for government workers. For example, Tol estimated U.N. climate talks cost about $200 million in 2015, the same year delegates met to hash out the Paris climate accord. Climate negotiations the following year cost slightly more, according to Tol, a professor at the University of Sussex.

Tol said that while the number of participants is fairly certain, the travel and salary costs are rough estimates. For example, Tol estimates the cost of flights and hotel stays and assumes the average government employee’s salary is four times the global average income. “I also exclude the time spent on preparing the meetings and the debriefings,” Tol said. By putting rising U.N. climate negotiation costs alongside rising greenhouse gas emissions, Tol illustrates an inconvenient truth for politicians and environmentalists: Spending hundreds of millions of dollars on climate conferences has done nothing to cut emissions.
