How Would You Measure Success at the Rio Summit? (Asking Nikhil Seth? )

Rio+20 was an astounding success.
Pity they had to waste all those resources to stage it but it was nevertheless very effective in showing to the world that the environmental scam is over.
None but a few dedicated cranks are buying it any longer.

A road that began with the release of E-mails in 2009 revealing a conspiracy of wholesale & orchestrated fraud between publicly funded scientists, which came to be known as Climategate.

The subsequent series of conferences in Copenhagen, Cancun & Durban became a growing embarrassment .

If Rio +20 isn't the final nail in the coffin of the hughly expensive, distracting & corrupt UNEP then it will undermine and terminally damage the very UN itself.
