Oops, Bush’s man at the UN goes off on global warming: “It’s an emergency”

This guy was basically selected by Bush because he seemed to be a do-nothing Bushie. Woops.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has become the first chief of the United Nations to visit the continent of Antarctica.

Ban flew to Antarctica from southern Chile Saturday in preparation for a climate conference in Indonesia next month aimed at replacing the Kyoto accord, the BBC reported.

The U.N. chief wanted to see for himself the effects of climate change on the world’s largest wilderness.

Ban told reporters what he had seen flying over the melting glaciers was both “extraordinarily beautiful” and “disturbing.”

He visited a research station set up by his home country of South Korea and was briefed by experts about the impact of global warming on the frozen continent.

“This is an emergency and for emergency situations we need emergency action,” the U.N. chief said.

Time for regime change, eh, George?
