South African president Thabo Mbeki launched himself high into the atmosphere courtesy of a hot air balloon yesterday to begin what he described as "intense mediation talks" with the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Mr Mbeki's undertaking is viewed as an alternative to conventional means of battling climate change.
The South African leader is expected to spend several months in the air trying to persuade excess levels of carbon dioxide to not trap as much solar radiation as they have been. "We must not jump to any conclusions," he added "These things take time."
