Wonderful, wonderful, Copenhagen...

Low targets, goals dropped: Copenhagen ends in failure
Deal thrashed out at talks condemned as climate change scepticism in action
What bollocks. It wasn't climate scepticism in action in Copenhagen it was incompetent, overblown bureaucracy in action (or inaction). Tens of thousands of delegates, officials and hangers on were never going to produce anything. The whole thing was farcical. Failure was widely predicted. For Obama to commit to anything that could be seen as damaging US interests, the US economy or US jobs would be political suicide. He may as well hand the keys of the White House to Sarah Palin now and be done with it. 

I see that travellers were stuck in the Channel Tunnel for 12 hours last night and the motorway is shut down because the ferries aren't sailing and Calais is closed. It's snowing and we have sub-zero temeratures. Is this Mother Nature's attempt at a joke at the expense of the Copenhagen crowd? I'd like to think so.
