Climate change and slavery: the perfect storm?

You know what else exacerbates poverty? Criminal enterprises posing as governments that are recognized by the U.N. and given all the privileges of U.N. membership. And if you’re really concerned about ending trafficking and slavery, fighting climate change by empowering the U.N.is quite possibly the most counterproductive way to do it.
The whole thing here.
