This morning, REDD-Monitor received an email, apparently from Kirk Roberts of Nupan Trading Corporation Ltd. The email is signed “Kirk William Roberts For and on behalf of the people of PNG,” and attached to it is an letter from Roberts to Kevin Conrad, Papua New Guinea’s Special Envoy and Ambassador for Environment and Climate Change.
The letter is available here (pdf file 1.8 MB) and below.
The temptation to headline this post “Man living in glass house throws stone,” was almost overwhelming. I could have pointed out that Roberts is perhaps better known as a “cock-fighting, carbon cowboy, king pin, tree tyrant,” and that Conrad was busy in Cancun on Papua New Guinea’s behalf watering down safeguards in the REDD text.
But that will have to wait for another day. It is, in any case, perhaps better to simply post Roberts’ letter and allow readers to form their own opinions. As ever, REDD-Monitor would be interested to hear from you.
