I just thought you might like to know how it happened.Â No, the Copenhagen "agreement" was less significant than the announcement would have us believe. But it was SOMETHING- which probably would not have happened without Obama crashing the party to be in the room.
I am a glass half empty kind of guy. SO far, climate change has actually been more like a few drops of water in the bottom of the glass. But I have to give Obama credit for old fashioned leadership, after Clinton who sort of halfway paid lip service to the existence of climate change, and Bush who pretended it was imaginary, or could be fixed by peddling corn ethanol.
