UN Delivers a Downer

No wonder Mitt Romney wants to shut down the United Nations: Everything it says is sooo depressing, like this less than uplifting diagnosis coming out of France today, via The New York Times:

U.N. Warns of Rapid Decay of Environment
By James Kanter

PARIS, Oct. 25 — The human population is living far beyond its means and inflicting damage to the environment that could pass points of no return, according to a major report issued Thursday by the United Nations.

Climate change, the rate of extinction of species, and the challenge of feeding a growing population are putting humanity at risk, the United Nations Environment Program said in its fourth Global Environmental Outlook since 1997.
Of course, if Mitt disbanded the U.N., we wouldn't have to read these types of reports and this whole enviro-crisis wouldn't be an issue, right?
