Wonderful to behold

A group of world leaders who will all be well and truly gone from office in 20 years expect applause for agreeing to make a difficult decision about what tough rules should apply to their successors in 2050. Yet no agreement on what the world should expect in the near term when the G8 nations are run by them. If you believe in miracles you will believe that a meaningful agreement will be reached in Copenhagen on limiting carbon emissions.

An agreement by the leaders that they want to limit the rise in the world’s temperature to two degrees is as meaningful as saying they intend to abolish all wars and poverty at the same time.
