On Saturday, UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner announced that actor Don Cheadle would serve as a U.N. Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador.

In accepting this honor, Don will fight climate change and promote environment conservation around the world.

He already started by naming a baby gorilla Zoya, a name that internet users chose as part of a UNEP awareness program.

Amazing.

    however, I'd be anxious to see how he fights the "climate change"……………..
