U.N. explodes into action...

On climate change.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon told reporters... "it may be too ambitious" to set targets for greenhouse-gas emissions in the draft text of an agreement aimed at replacing the Kyoto Protocol to stop global warming.
Now, how could that be possible? The United Nations has such a stellar record of solving all the world's ills.
Delegates from about 190 nations, now holding high-level meetings, are split over whether targets should be set now or later. Mr. Ban recognizes the divisions.

"Frankly speaking, realistically, it may be too ambitious if delegates would expect to be able to agree on target of greenhouse gas emission reduction," he said.

"But, as I told you, some time down the road we will have to agree on that."
I don't know... it sounds as though Steffi may have got to him.

NEWSFLASH: "Act Right Now or Die" warns Moon.

Apparently Ban Ki-Moon has an evil twin...
"We are at a crossroads: one path leads to a comprehensive climate change agreement, the other one to oblivion."
I'm so confused.

They should simply agree that it's 1974 and sign documents allowing GHG emissions for every year since - this would allow them to establish a clear and credible baseline, proving to everyone that they're smarter than you...
