Schwarzenegger to address United Nations

(CNN) – Arnold Schwarzenegger will jump into the mix of world leaders convening in New York this week for the United Nations General Assembly.

The former California governor, who backed strict emissions controls while in office, is set to discuss clean energy practices Tuesday at a forum focused on combating climate change in the private sector.

He’s known as a steady advocate for environmental protections and has criticized fellow Republicans who question man-made impacts to climate change.

Schwarzenegger completed his second term as Republican governor earlier this year. His departure was soon followed by scandal when he admitted to fathering a child outside his marriage more than a decade ago.

    Ya gotta appreciate anyone who fights for the planet, these days. Most politicians ignore the planet, and will continue to do so, right up to the time when it dies!

    Will his address be in English or Saptokian? At least he is not addressing the people of Kali-forn-ya anymore. Anyone else who wants him and have him!

    And which language will he be speaking in during his address? Would it be German, English or Arnold English? At least he is a Republican that understands science. He knows that we can't screw up the planet and need to fix what we mess up.

    Yes, his departure was followed by scandal. Much more importantly, however, his tenure was marked by failure.
