[video] The 7pm Project gives a both-sides-speak report on global warming - rare on television. And when people finally get to hear both sides, they will realise the extent to which they have been deceived.
-- Press Releases March 2011 - Secretary-General welcomes new report on efforts to green the UN - United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) --
Nairobi, 1 April 2011 - The United Nations has released details of its greenhouse gas emissions for 52 institutions, covering 200,000 employees, in a new report published as part of ongoing efforts to reduce the organisation's carbon footprint.

The report, co-ordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), calculates the UN's total greenhouse gas emissions for 2009 at 1.7 million tonnes of CO₂ equivalent, or 8.3 tonnes per capita.

Over 50 percent of UN's emissions are from air travel (4.1 tonnes per capita) making this the biggest challenge for the organisation in reducing its overall carbon footprint.
