UN chief: economic model an environmental threat

U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon says the current economic model is an environmental "global suicide pact" that will result in disaster if it isn't reformed.
He says political and business leaders need to embrace an economic "revolution" in order to save the planet.
Ban Ki-moon told a panel at the World Economic Forum on Friday that time is running out to make the global economy sustainable.
His words received a mixed reception from fellow panelists including Mexico's President Felipe Calderon, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Walmart CEO Mike Duke and Microsoft's Bill Gates.
