Well Mary's Climate protection thrust was good. Along with all the other societies: The Greens, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, all played and are playing a part. And we musn't forget the Scandinavian teenage girl Gretta who managed to galvanize the press.Looks like the foundation is winding down after playing a "key" role in shuffling papers and reports around the world.
Did we sub this?
The notion that we irish should pay 3rd world dictators for polluting the world, and taking all their spare people, wasn't ever going to get a single vote anywhere.
In January 2018 the Board of Trustees of the Foundation announced their decision to scale back activities at the end of 2018 and undertake a planned closedown of operations, to be completed by March 2019.
The Board made this decision knowing that as a direct result of the Foundation’s activities since 2010 climate justice has gone from being effectively a taboo topic to being an approach to climate decision-making and action that is people-centered, rights-informed and fair. Climate justice is supported as a concept by a growing academic literature and in practice by new funding streams from governments and philanthropy. It is now a concept and language that different actors in the world of development, climate change and human rights coalesce around to find commonalities rather than differences.
The Foundation is grateful to all the people and organisations who have supported its work to advance climate justice. Without this broad coalition the Foundation would not have been able to play a key part in realising ten binding decisions or resolutions at the United Nations level that reflect principles of climate justice.

What a diversion/ distraction...
Suffice to say that Mary is probably passed the sell-by date now. She did a good job standing up to the anti contraceptive Catholic establishment in her time as Labour Senator TD. This Latifa thing? She was played for a sucker and big-time. the fact that she hasn't come out and admitted it shows that she's ripe for retirement.
