FILE - In this March 30, 2013 file picture former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev speaks during his open lecture ''Does a man change history, or history change a man?” i in Moscow, Russia. Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev painted a dim picture of the world's environmental progress Thursday, April 18, 2013, two decades after he and a former Swiss lawmaker founded Green Cross International. Shortly before the Soviet Union's demise in 1991, then-leader Gorbachev proposed a Red Cross for the environment that could also tackle threats from a nuclear arms race and the overconsumption of the world' resources from runaway population and development pressures. But after two decades since he and Roland Wiederkehr launched the Geneva-based organization, the 82-year-old Russian icon admits to deep frustrations as an environmental crusader. "All that has been done is too late, and it's not enough," Gorbachev, speaking in Russian, told reporters in Geneva by video link. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko,File)
