UN climate hoax bureaucrats "put out the begging bowl"

SKNVibes | Budget battle at cash-strapped UN climate forum
(Bonn, DEU) - Administrators tasked with running the UN's talks on climate change have put out the begging bowl to help implement deals that in theory could reach a hundred billion dollars a year.

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is asking its 194 parties to boost its roughly 25-million-dollar annual budget by about 15 percent for 2012 and 2013.

The proposal has so far been rejected by the handful of rich nations that usually foot the bill, according to sources at a meeting in Bonn, where some 3,000 delegates and observers are gathered until Friday.

The UNFCCC secretariat has a staff of 145, headquartered in the former West German capital.
