Sorry Dave, but you are the one who is wrong. The UNCHR's mandate was to "examine, monitor and publicly report on human rights situations in specific countries or territories". It was not to bring notorious violators on board as peers in order to engage with them. Yes, there is a place and time for that, but the police's role is to arrest offenders, not to have a discussion with them and definitely not to enrol criminals among their ranks in order to help improve these criminals' reputation. It was in fact so discredited that to the UN's credit, it was dissolved in 2006 precisely for that reason and replaced by the HRC. And since we are at it, what are the human rights improvements that were made in Lybia and Iran, under the respective presidency of those two countries?
And, more importantly and closer to the topic, what about Figueres' view that political pluralism is "very detrimental" to the CO2 emissions cause? Is it also a case of a wannabe dictator appointed by the UN so that she can improve her ways?
