French President Jacques Chirac is leading the charge to replace the existing UN Environment Programme (UNEP), but he lacks the support of the United
States, Russia, China, India and Brazil. Chirac noted that the biggest polluters are refusing to accept the consequences of their acts.

The charge led by French President Jacques Chirac came a day after the release of an authoritative and disturbingly grim scientific report in Paris
that said global warming is "very likely" caused by mankind and that climate change will continue for centuries even if heat-trapping gases are
reduced. It was the strongest language ever used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose last report was issued in 2001.
The document, a collaboration of hundreds of scientists and government officials, was approved by 113 nations, including the United States.
Despite the report's dire outlook, most scientists say the worst disasters huge sea level rises and the most catastrophic storms and droughts may be
avoided if strong action is taken soon.

Just remember more government doesn't guarantee any solutions, but it does mean we still pay for it. So don't be surprised if it comes down to every
man, woman and child for themself, after they clean our pockets...remember Katrina.
