U.N. agency pressures Ban on climate crisis summit

The U.N. environment agency pressured Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday to call an emergency climate summit amid dire reports about the risks from global warming.
We can hope this receives the same emergency attention from the UN as has the genocide in Darfur. Even Kofi Annan has acknowledged this UN failure, though he felt obliged to simultaneously spew non sequitur criticisms of the United States - the only country actually trying to get the UN off its backside.
