Curbing Global Warming: US Must Set Example

http://goldsea.com/Asiagate/707/27ban.html

How many of us actually know who is the current Secretary of the United Nations? It seems nowadays people are more inclined to only read the news if headlines characterizing Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan's latest blunders are right smack on the front page, rather than being concerned with what is really happening in the world. There are more important things than what's hot in Hollywood Gossip (quite frankly, I could care less about these supposed role models and their antics).....but back to the matter at hand: for those of you still wondering, Ban Ki-Moon (South Korea's former foreign minister) is now the eighth Secretary of the United Nations by succeeding Kofi Annan.

Ki-Moon has stated that in this term, he hopes to place the spotlight on the issue of global warming and the deleterious effect it is having on the global community. The most significant point he made is that the United States must lead the way and be the role models for other nations to follow if this predicament is ever to be contained. The status of the United States these days is often one eliciting great skepticism due to the many questionable decisions that the nation has made in regards to various global issues (e.g. War on Iraq). Having faith in the United States shows that Ki-Moon supports in the credibility that the United States is assumed to have as one of the leading global powers.

Can the United States truly be the kind of leader that Ki-Moon believes it has the potential of once again becoming? The nation has definitely shown progress and with individuals like Al Gore spearheading an environmental awareness campaign, it seems as though the issue of global warming is finally taking center stage with the world wondering exactly how it can control this issue so that future generations are not grealty devastated by the mistakes of the present.

Ki-Moon has already shown great leadership in the manner in which he upholds himself and is truly being a great representative on behalf of the United Nations. Issues like global warming are what we as global citizens need to be truly aware of and how the global community is reacting to such topics. These are the kinds of things we should be concerned with, moreso than the aforementioned 'Hollywood gossip'.....now you know who the Secretary of the United Nations is....that's definitely a start: keep it going...
