Copenhagen blues

The backstory to the Copenhagen Climate Soiree –

“More than a year ago, Mr. Obama said of climate change: ‘Delay is no longer an option. Denial is no longer an acceptable response.’ But when Mr. Obama and other world leaders met last month, they were forced to abandon the goal of reaching a binding accord at Copenhagen because the American political system is not ready to agree to a treaty that would force the United States, over time, to accept profound changes in its energy, transport and manufacturing sectors.” (John M. Broder, New York Times)

Funny how democracy gums up the works. Especially in a new world order.

Then again, Gore Vidal has a good point: “Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.”
