The Swiss are apparently the most worried people in the world about global warming according to a poll carried out by the Nielsen Company in 47 countries.

Given their concern, the Swiss might take on board the proposal made in Bern by the head of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the other Nobel Peace Prize winner this year whose name isn’t Al Gore). Rajendra Pachauri called on the Swiss to take a leading role in the fight against climate change as they had the financial and human resources to make a difference.
