I am not sure forming a global government would solve much. The problem is enforcement. How much commitment can individual countries and companies provide? How the global village will agree on that? I am afraid that practical enforcement will look like an outright war. At least, the meaningful enforcement and in the initial stage.

One organization which does some enforcing protection of the environment is Sea Shepherd. But I hardly know other examples.

enforcement is a key component of a functional government, of course.
