Did you know the United States now has a “U.S. Special Envoy for Biodiversity and Water Resources?”

Neither did I. Perhaps that is because the position is new. The Daily Caller has a great name for the position: Ambassador For Plants And Animals. Sounds about right. Even the Washington Post makes a bit of fun over the position. At least I think they did. If they take the whole thing seriously they deserve even less respect than I normally give them.

Why do we need such an envoy or ambassador? Well it turns out that the president’s Chief of Staff has a wife in need of a nice sinecure, and the president has the power to invent one just for her. So he did, and you have to admit that it sounds like a great gig. Represent all the biodiversity on Earth to mankind without having to do anything but bloviate. It’s not like plants and animals can make many requests for help or even take a meeting with her.

The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it is appointing the wife of White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain to be a special diplomat overseeing international animal and plant habitats.

The State Department appointed Monica Medina as the first-ever U.S. Special Envoy for Biodiversity and Water Resources to solve the world’s intertwined biodiversity and water crises, according to a department media note. Klain’s wife will adopt an “all-of-government effort” to represent the interests of plants and animals abroad because the administration believes that such species are currently threatened by the “climate crisis.”

Any good liberal would want to make a nice buck while being able to claim that she is saving the world, all without having to do much more than jet around the world whinging about how awful humanity is. Don’t be surprised if Miss Climate Change is killing us all gets to fly around on private planes to lecture Africans about how they need to eat less and quit burning fossil fuels.

Medina and the department will crack down on “nature crime” such as illegal mining and logging, to promote biodiversity and keep water supplies clean, the department stated. The special envoy will also implement the White House’s water security plan and the Global Water Strategy, initiatives that seek to stop droughts across the globe without increasing greenhouse gas emissions.

Medina will continue to serve in her current role as the Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs in addition to taking on her new responsibilities as special envoy, according to the announcement. The envoy will also represent the U.S. in global climate conferences like the 2023 United Nations (UN) Water Conference.

The Biden administration’s appointment comes ahead of the Montreal UN Biodiversity Conference that will be held in December, according to the UN. The conference was originally supposed to be hosted by China in 2020 but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to The Associated Press.

Cracking down on “nature crime.” Sounds important. Glad somebody is going after nasty nature for committing crimes against humanity.

The Biden Administration is apparently striving to avoid the danger of being parodied by being more absurd than anything the Babylon Bee could think up. If it didn’t cost every American some ungodly amount of money to support such idiocy it would actually be amusing. You could make a movie starring Peter Sellers that would make big bucks.

Unfortunately, this is reality. It not only costs big bucks, it makes America look absurd. This is late-stage decline of empire behavior, and unfortunately it leads me to believe that our country may not survive the fall of civilization.

But with Monica Medina on the case, perhaps biodiversity will be preserved for when the cockroaches inherit the Earth.
