Kofi Annan Rewards Enviro Benefactor?
Achim Steiner was a judge on the Zayed Prize for Global Environmental Leadership panel that awarded Annan $500,000 in 2005. Steiner was just named to head the U.N. Environmental Program. Of course the U.N. denies a quid pro quo. The Zayed Prize is sponsored by the United Arab Emirates. Steiner previously headed the World Conservation Union.
