The United Nations Climate Change Secretariat released its first ever annual report this week, in which it held up its “Gender Action Plan” as a key to increasing the participation of women in responding to global warming.

“Climate Change is the single biggest threat to life, security and prosperity on Earth,” said UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa at the roll-out of the report.

“This annual report shows how UN Climate Change is doing everything it can to support, encourage and build on the global response to climate change,” Espinosa said, adding that “UN Climate Change’s mandate is to lead and support the global community in this international response, with the Paris Agreement and the Convention being the long-term vehicles for united global climate action.”

In his foreword to the report, UN Secretary-General António Guterres, expressed a similar conviction that global warming poses a singular threat to the world in the third millennium.

In many countries, the UN is one of the greatest threats to life, security and prosperity. Just ask Bangladeshi's about the arsenic-tainted shallow wells dug for them by the UN and the UN's subsequent throwing of money for fixing the problem to corrupt politicians! Just ask Rwandans how effective UN "Peacekeepers" were in the mid 1990s!

Tell that to the Christians in the Middle East and Asia.
