Whom would you nominate to an international committee to save the planet?

Let's suppose all nations irrevocably agree to follow the tough-love recommendations of a "Manhattan project" type super committee to keep the planet viable and inhabitable through the next million or so years. What specific people and/or skill sets would you like to see on the committee?

@Banana Breath,
St Bono, of Dublin.

He can bring a sense of cool to any occasion, can preach on any subject and would be happy to sing to the rest of them during teabreaks.

Mel Brooks. If there is anyone expert at controlling emissions, it would be him. Just look at Blazing Saddles for proof.

That's at least as sensible as George Harrison's role as point person for the Bangladesh relief efforts of the early 1970's which were ultimately quite successful.

@Banana Breath,
The only difference being that the late, great George was never up his own arse in any way.
Spiritual, yes.....hippie dippy, maybe....but a totally sincere and gentle human being.
