Ban Ki-moon

The UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, has written an opinion piece in the Guardian today ahead of the Hokkaido Toyako G8 summit. Read it here.
It's interesting (although not in a good way) to see a reference to Malthusian thinking on global hunger and resource scarcity in such a piece. One would hope that such thinking had been discredited a long time ago.
