You asked about "Green Cross". There is some information on Wikipedia 

1) "Green Cross" was the (code) name for a nervegas used during WW1. To name 
an organisation, which claims to stand for such a number of humane thoughts, 
by the name of a poison which was used to deliberately kill thousands (tens 
of thousands?) of human beings is a little difficult to understand

2) It is an initiative based on Gorbatchev. I am more than sceptic about any 
"world wide" humanitarian initiatives of politicians and history shows that 
humanity is usually not the real driving force. I do not go into detail, but 
there are more than enough examples throughout history, especially the 
recent one, to prove this opinion.

3) People active in this circle seem to be mostly politicians. Anyway 
according to the links (many of them do not work) this circle seems to be 
rather exclusive. This can explain the importance of this meeting according 
to MacPherson, this ultimate expert in nuclear matters..  The "Dialogue with 
international Experts" (No names given or is the Japanese Prime Minister 
another ultimate expert?) It will last for two (two!!!) hours in Zurich. 
Experts from Japan, Russia and Switzerland, no others available? No other 
countries affected? This is absurd - anybody travelling from wheresoever to 
Zurich for two hours discussion?

No, I stop now, because this topic is to absurd and silly to spend even a 
few minutes wasting time on PR for a few polificians.

Best regards,
