  1. Doña Christiana:

    Saludos desde Costa Rica, me permito por este medio presentarme, mi nombre es Sebastián, soy estudiante de las carreras de economía y derecho, aparte de eso, soy un creyente de las ideologías de su padre, un gran admirador de la labor que él hizo por nuestro país y por supuesto de la enorme tarea que está realizando usted ahora mismo por el mundo. Con toda honestidad, me dirijo hacia usted porque estoy interesado en un proyecto que puede marcar una diferencia en un sector de este país, para lo cual quería solicitarle una colaboración que no tomará de su tiempo un espacio mayor a 5 minutos y que no tendrá ningún costo económico para su persona. De ser posible le agradezco que me lo comunique en la medida de lo que le sea posible. Mi correo es: chinchilla0712@hotmail.com o por este medio. Termino agradeciéndole por la labor que usted empeña en favor de este planeta y terminando con una frase que quizá le resulte familiar (dado que es de su autoría)

    “Cuando los ciudadanos se sienten inspirados para actuar, es más fácil que los gobiernos tomen las decisiones que tienen que tomar”

  2. Dear Ms. Figueres,
    I am the president of the Southampton Town Democratic Club on eastern Long Island. I recently attended a League of Women Voters Conference on Violence Against Women at the United Nations and was taken by the good work that is being done. Also, I receive the UN Wire and saw this article about you and your efforts on climate change. The Democratic Club – which is not exclusive to Democrats and welcomes those of all political persuasions – holds monthly breakfast meetings from 10:00 AM to noon, generally on Saturdays but occasionally on Sundays (noon to 2:00 PM) as well. We invite interesting speakers on topics related to the environment or social and political issues.

    Would you have an interest in coming out to the lovely Hamptons some weekend to meet from 50-100 people, depending on the day and the time of year, to speak on the work that you are doing at the UN? It would be such an honor for us to meet you if we could entice you out here.

    The website for the Democratic Club is http://www.shdemclub.com. Under About Us – History you would be able to see some of the subjects and speakers we have had in the past.

    Thank you again for your good work and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Warmest regards,
    Joy Flynn, President, JP Spata Southampton Town Democratic Club

  3. That would be such an honor if you could arrange that when you’re in New York. I didn’t realize you’re based in Bonn! I so look forward to hearing from you.
    Mil gracias!

  4. Hi, Mrs figueres how can i know what is the position of unfccc about Geoengineering, please can you help with a link o articules from unfccc positions, this importan for one job of my university

    thanks

  5. If you are researcher you should find out its solution yourself. On the other hand, we should be aware that such solution of Science & Technology should be proved by Challenging UNFCCC rather to write personally. What are problems we know very well but we can blame on System rather one person?

  6. Hi Mrs Figueres,
    I Have received an e-mail indicating that I contact prof. Clarke. I wish to inquire about the Authenticity of this e-mail received in my yahoo account on 13th November, 2013.

    I will be pleased to receive your feedback.
    Regards,

    • Ms. Figueres, I am most grateful to be chosen as a winner in your lottery. I have sent off my details, and hope to see the money soon. With it, I will be able to dig a well for my small community to share, except for the man who lives on the corner who mistreats his dogs. They are hungry and bark all the time but they rarely bite. I do not understand why he does this.

      When all have water, we will praise the work of yourself and Prof. Clarke in helping those who are less fortunate. May God bless you and your organization for your service to humanity.

  9. Your longing to suspend democracy and emulate the despot human rights country China in order to fight your ‘invisible dragon’ global warming is pathetic and disgusting.
    You may wish to bring back the days of the Stasi to try achieve your personal eco-facist ideology, but the majority of freedom loving people will rightly tell you to go-to-hell with it madam.

  10. Dear Mrs. Figueres,

    I am the external affairs coordinator of a student association AWAke (Association for World Affairs), based in Tilburg University, in the Netherlands. Every year we organize and host an inter-faculty symposium for all the university students. This year, the topic is the Environment and Sustainability, which will be approached from economic, juridical, and purely environmental points of view. It is clear that now more than ever, it is important to raise awareness about this issue, and we were wondering if you would be willing to come to the university, hosted as a guest speaker? I know this is a lot to ask as I am sure you have a very busy schedule, but I think you would be perfect to convince people who do not care as much as they should to start caring a little more. The symposium is currently scheduled for April 2nd (or possibly 3rd if you are more available). I would like to thank you in advance for reading this, and if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

    Kind Regards,

    Helene Marie Kratz

  11. Dear Mrs. Figueres, from my experience in writing a blog with climate change topics popular for the past 4 years, I believe that you would be wise to take more care in statements that can be miss-used by climate change deniers. For instance, our resident denier put out an email to our department weather & climatologists at Univ. of Washington, Seattle, to say ” The extreme cold over North America this winter was “very strange” so it must have been caused by global warming’s cousin climate change according to the U.N.’s climate change chief Christiana Figueres. She regards her work not just as important, but as “sacred.” This appears to be more proof that climate change has left the realm of science and turned into a new religion.”
    I’m certain that your climate change knowledge is not faith-based, but it is true that a scientist would not use a term like “sacred”.
    Cheers, RA Brown: http://blog.seattlepi.com/robertbrown/

  12. Ms. Figueres.
    I thank you for being approachable, and for answering your emails. This by itself is very commendable.
    A couple of weeks ago our group met with the DOE and the EPA and CURC and members of congress and of senate to discuss our environment. It appeared to be very positive, but we are dealing with DC politicians. I hate to say “forked tongue”, but maybe their desire is a better translation.
    We the Team at (SidelSystems.com) want to show America the proof, but it seems so hard for the government to truly and accept that it might be / is on the floor wanting to show. We want to show the big number reductions capable for America.

  13. Dear Mrs Figueres,
    I have received an e-mail indicating contact to prof. Michael Clarke. I wish to inquire about the authenticity of this e-mail. I have received it on my e-mail account on 15th April 2014

  14. Anyone who knowing the historical data of environmental nightmare in the former Soviet bloc countries, even mentions such a possibility as a solution to any natural world problems, should be directly send to the lunatic asylum.

    • Christiana, have I made contact with you? It’s Larry Thomas, ex Lincoln teacher. I’d like to exchange a few greetings with you and your family.

  15. Media release

    The Mathematics of God, General Mathematics, The Mathematics of the Bible, Understanding the Bible, A Third of God’s Teaching Lost, the Second Coming, Churches’ Responsible for Modern Problems etc. A Great Conspiracy?

    I have written a book on General Mathematics and on applying it to the Bible found that a similar mathematics of concepts was used to construct the Bible. This is not surprising as mathematics, as we know it, is quite ‘recent’ and the Bible is ancient.

    The ‘template fit’ of the book with the Bible is uncanny and ‘proves’ that the Ancients or God ‘knew’ what they were doing by including the three Laws of Life, but over the last two thousand years, one third of the teachings have been ‘lost’ by the Church, but is still reflected in the Bible and in the Trinity. Is this an oversight or a huge conspiracy on the part of the Churches? This is (possibly) a very important omission and perhaps should be brought to the public notice for comment.

    Further, this omission, has resulted in the Churches ignoring the ‘unforgivable sin’, and if God’s teachings were better understood or the Church more forward looking, the planet and people might not be in the parlous state that they are and approaching an Armageddon through Global Warming, over-population etc.

    If you are interested, or know someone that might be interested in this subject and would like a copy of the Afterword (8 pages) of an unpublished book, that contains this example, please send the relevant email address. Regards Darryl

  16. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  17. Dear Ma’am:

    I just want to inform you that someone might be using your name without your knowledge. I received an email dated June 28 2014 informing me that UNFCCC is giving me a very huge grant. I found the selection process to be suspicious.

    Thank you.
