Expected debate over Kyoto Protocol threatens to stall progress on other fronts.

” …“I think what really kept developing countries at the negotiating table in Copenhagen was the $100 billion per year,” says Timmons Roberts, who heads the Center for Environmental Studies at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. “If it’s just another empty aid promise, the Copenhagen Accord is going to fall apart.”… “
There was of course, no “Copenhagen Accord” it was the Copenhagen Discord!
And who pops up prominently commenting in the “Comments” – Professor Singer!

Newly prudent nations, including the world’s biggest greenhouse gas emitters, have no intention of following the kamikaze lead of Australia, which produces just 1 per cent of global emissions.
Everyone but Australia has figured out we can no longer afford the luxury of empty gestures. And the latest batch of leaked climate scientists’ emails, dubbed Climategate 2.0, confirm suspicions of something fishy about the global warming gravy train… “
