Two weeks for a sub-group of nations to agree that it would be nice if we didn't fry the planet. Surely they could have signed up to that a bit quicker? Something rotten in the state of Denmark?
There is still much to be done to solve the climate change problem facing every living thing on this planet.
See what the papers around the world say about it - New York Times, Times of India, Sydney Morning Herald, Le Monde, Mail and Guardian online from South Africa, Los Angeles Times and the Guardian. Not exactly a vote of confidence in the deal.
More to do - so much more to do.
Afraid I never have much confidence in any politicians of any kind. Not surprised that so many different & varied nations/peoples could not agree on a policy - they even have problems with the little things in life, so a big one like this would stump them totally. However, I have a huge belief in Mother Nature finding a way around things, and I have an innermost hope that things will perhaps not turn out too badly in the long term: there have been major changes in the earths climate in the past, and we are all still here.
