New role for secret service
British MI6 targets climate sinners
In the past, several international climate goals were agreed upon by the international community of states. However, it is primarily federal states that are responsible for self-compliance. The British Secret Service sees this issue at the top of its agenda – and whenever it comes to control, does not want to miss a chance.
British Secret Service MI6 has declared war on climate sinners: According to its owner Richard Moore, Secret Service agents are now looking at large industrialized countries to see if they are complying with their climate protection obligations. In an interview with Times Radio, Moore stressed that “climate protection is the most important topic on the foreign policy agenda for this country and the planet.” “Of course we play a role in this area.” Moore is the first MI6 chief in history to speak of his agency’s work in a radio interview.
“Where people are making commitments on climate change, it can be our job to ensure that they are committed to what they do.” “As someone used to say, ‘Trust is good, control is better,” Moore said. Climate protection only works when everyone participates and behaves appropriately. “Sometimes” should therefore be checked whether this is also the case.
In the interview, Moore also commented on the current tensions between the Western states and Russia. The Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin was explicitly warned against an invasion of the neighboring country in view of the large-scale movement of Russian troops into the border region with Ukraine over the past few weeks. “The Russians have no doubt where Britain stands on this issue,” Moore said. Moscow is also aware of the US position on the matter. In the last few weeks, Russia had assembled tens of thousands of troops in the border region with Ukraine and captured the Crimea peninsula.
Army transfers, which Russia justified with military exercises, feared an open war between Moscow and Kiev in the west. On Friday, Russia said it began withdrawing its troops. Moore has been at the helm of MI6, made famous by the “James Bond” films since July last year. The head of the Secret Service appears in the films “James Bond” as “M”. One of the many artistic freedoms that the film series allows itself – is actually the MI6 boss’s nickname “C”.
