New UN Report Understands Government Is Problem

From TreeHugger:

According to a weighty new UN report (it’s 6,300 pages long and includes submissions from 2,500 experts) uncovered by The Independent, the world stands poised to enter a new era of peace, prosperity and empowerment. Increased democratization, economic and technological advances and medical breakthroughs have the potential to bring millions out of poverty and make the world “work far better than it does today”.

It concludes by castigating world governments as being “inefficient, slow and ill-informed” and reiterates a common refrain for more international cooperation and, most important, a “global strategy”. Without this, it says, neither climate change nor international organized crime, among others, will ever be resolved.
