France to allocate $1.4 billion to develop energy sources

In an article titled "U.N. Warns of Rapid Decay of Environment", the New York Times discussed a UN report which issued on Thursday, Oct. 25:

[Achim Steiner] also warned of a global collapse of all species being fished by 2050, if fishing around the world continued at its current pace. The report said that two and a half times more fish were being caught than the oceans could produce in a sustainable manner, and that the level of fish stocks classed as collapsed had roughly doubled over the past 20 years, to 30 percent.


[Sarkozy] said he would make 1 billion euros, or $1.4 billion, available over four years to develop energy sources and maintain biodiversity. He said each euro spent on nuclear research would be matched by one spent on research into clean technologies and environmental protection.
