UN+Maritime Capitalism. I'd rather stop shipping this pairing.

Tasked to Fight Climate Change, the International Maritime Organization - A UN agency - does the Opposite, in secret. The NYT reports that the industry that generates more CO2 than all of America's coal plants has, for decades, suborned the UN agency tasked with regulating it. The IMO keeps on delaying and watering standards down (and neutering their enforcement) so much, that shipping is dirtier and more consumptive every year. Regulatory capture, old school transnational-capitalism style.
