Shocker: Yet another expensive, world-saving climate hoax response is actually ineffective and corrupt?

United Nations warned that corruption is undermining grants to stop logging | Environment | The Observer
Campaigners say countries intend to abuse system by pocketing billions in subsidies while continuing to fell trees
A revolutionary scheme backed by the World Bank to pay poor countries billions of dollars a year to stop felling trees is the best way to stop logging and save the planet from climate change, according to wealthy countries and conservationists, yet documents seen by the Observer show the plan is actually leading to corruption and possibly more logging.

Human rights and environment groups yesterday called for a radical rethink of the United Nations scheme, known as Redd (Reduced emissions from deforestation and degradation), after it emerged that many countries were trying to cheat the system.
