Least we forget about this expert in Climate Change

Karen Christiana Figueres Olsen (born 7 August 1956) is a Costa Rican diplomat with 35 years of experience in high level national and international policy and multilateral negotiations. She was appointed Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in July 2010, six months after the failed COP15 in Copenhagen. During the next six years she dedicated herself to rebuilding the global climate change negotiating process based on fairness, transparency and collaboration, leading to the 2015 Paris Agreement, widely recognized as a historical achievement. Over the years she has worked in the fields of climate change, sustainable development, energy, land use, technical and financial cooperation. She is a frequent public speaker and widely published author. She is the mother of two young women, and speaks Spanish, English, and German.

Early life
Figueres was born in San José, Costa Rica. Her father, José Figueres Ferrer, was President of Costa Rica three times. Figueres’ mother, Karen Olsen Beck, served as Costa Rican Ambassador to Israel in 1982 and was a member of the Legislative Assembly from 1990–1994. The couple had four children. Figueres' older brother José Figueres Olsen, was also President of Costa Rica (1994–1998).
Growing up in La Lucha, Figueres attended the local Cecilia Orlich grammar school. She moved to the German Humboldt Schule in the capital and later graduated from Lincoln High School. She travelled to England for a year of A Level studies before entering Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. As part of her studies in anthropology, she lived in Bribri, Talamanca, a remote indigenous village in the Southeastern plateau of Costa Rica for one year, designing a culturally-sensitive literacy program which was used by the Ministry of Education for several years.
Figueres joined botanist Dr. Russell Seibert to improve nutritional conditions in Western Samoa using highly nutritious plants.
She then went to the London School of Economics for a master's degree in social anthropology and graduated in 1981. She met there and later married German-born Konrad von Ritter (former head of the World Bank’s sustainable development unit). Her husband Konrad von Ritter founded a small (up to 50 employees) company WEnergy Global Pte Ltd in Singapore which is also working in green energy and ecology sector. He wrote several papers about ecology problems for the World Bank during 2003-2004. He has been working as a Sector Manager of Environmentally & Socially Sustainable Development department in World Bank Institute in 2006. The couple have two daughters with Arabic names: Naima (March 1988) and Yihana (December 1989).

1. Better than a shitpipe dowser.

35 years of experience in high level national and international policy and multilateral negotiations. She was appointed Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in July 2010.

Have you ever watched those videos where they test dowserss?
It's pretty entertaining because they fail miserably every time.

2. Not to mention

She doesn't know a fucking thing about meteorology or climate.

But then she doesn't need to. She doesn't care about those things. She is only concerned about destroying capitalism by promoting global warming.

"35 years of experience in high level national and international policy." What a joke.

17. yeah. he's called me a liar quite a bit as well.

Can never point to one piece of evidence to backup his claim that I lied.

He'll accuse me of supporting or being against something, I'll explain, with evidence, that he is absolutely wrong and he'll start calling me a liar.

I've caught him lying and pointed it out a few times already.

Another thing he likes to do is pretend he knew something all along when he just learned it. Even in the same thread where he showed he had no fucking clue what he was talking about, he'll pretend that he knew all along even though it's right there for everyone to see.
He thinks people are stupid.
It's hilarious.

19. He plays the 'gotcha' game.

Thinks that by asking a series of questions leading to a conclusion that he is clever or something. It's always the same shit too. Same lame questions.
Nobody falls for it so he just looks ridiculous.
That's why I have been saying the same shit to him all day over and over and over again.
That's all he deserves, to be mocked.

Like every time Aquila posts about hydrogen he asks "how is your hydrogen car doing?"
It's pointless, but it is good for a chuckle at his expense because he really has nothing going on other than that.
Nothing original at all, thoughts, data, reasoning.. he gets it all from anti-science lunatics and gobbles it up like a hungry puppy.

20. Get this he just claimed in another thread that

"There are 235 republicans and 307 democrats in the house"

That totals over 100 more than there are actual seats in the house.

U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare


2/10/2015
Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man's stewardship of the environment. But we know that's not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

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.

"This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution," she said.

Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: "This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history."

The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

Figueres is perhaps the perfect person for the job of transforming "the economic development model" because she's really never seen it work. "If you look at Ms. Figueres' Wikipedia page," notes Cato economist Dan Mitchell: Making the world look at their right hand while they choke developed economies with their left hand.
