Copenhagen – the comedy

Our beneficent publisher, who is cultivating a nice tan Down Under, thought y’all might enjoy this screed from Bill McKibben, eco-pundit extraordinaire. I suspect the piece is meant to inspire; but you’ll have to wade through the silliness first.

The President of the United States did several things with his agreement today with China, India, and South Africa:

“He blew up the United Nations. The idea that there’s a world community that means something has disappeared tonight. The clear point is, you poor nations can spout off all you want on questions like human rights or the role of women or fighting polio or handling refugees. But when you get too close to the center of things that count—the fossil fuel that’s at the center of our economy—you can forget about it. We’re not interested.”

See what I mean?
