Millions of children could die because cash for food aid is diverted to tackle climate change, Oxfam has warned.Is this the Oxfam that’s been banging on about climate change for the last few years?
Why, it seems it is. Yet now when they find out it might affect their other cosy sinecures, and thereby result in less employment opportunities and UN-sponsored dinner-dances, they are screaming even harder:
Next week world leaders will meet at a UN Summit in New York to discuss where the money will come from and how much should be put aside.Well, what do they expect will happen? That countries should just pony up the money for this in addition to the money already spent on…
However aid agencies are becoming increasingly concerned that the money will be diverted from existing funds to help countries deal with poverty, child malnutrition, Aids and other issues.
Oh. It seems that’s exactly what they expect:
Oxfam believe that £30 billion should be made available every year for climate change adaptation in addition to the 0.7 per cent of national income rich countries have already pledged as aid.Oxfam are welcome to their beliefs. They aren't welcome to my money to fund them.
