Bank of England governor Mark Carney has been appointed United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance which he will take up once his term as governor ends on 31 January 2020.
The announcement comes ahead of COP25, the UN’s annual climate change conference, which gets under way in Madrid on Monday.
The governor said he was “honoured” to be asked to take on the role.
Mr Carney said the UN climate change conference “provides a platform to bring the risks from climate change and the opportunities from the transition to a net-zero economy into the heart of financial decision-making”.
“To do so, the disclosures of climate risk must become comprehensive, climate risk management must be transformed, and investing for a net-zero world must go mainstream,” he added.
The special envoy post is a pro bono position that is undertaken essentially for free – the UN will pay Mr Carney $1 a year once he steps down as governor of the Bank of England. This of course is not the reality as Carney will have access to many lucrative career options as a result of this.
Billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was the last person to hold the post. He worked with the UN on climate change-related issues from 2014 to 2019.
Opinion- Carney famously worked alongside George Osborne during the EU referendum to come up with a variety of ridiculous warnings about what would happen in the event of a leave vote. Literally none of them came to fruition therefore why on earth should anyone trust Carney on ‘climate change’. Carney is just another globalist stooge once again receiving a plum job from his puppet masters.
