Mixed Result Proclaimed As Triumph


Bali Climate Talks, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

A healthy thing happened among the hype. Despite Nobel Laureate Gore and Australian PM Rudd making many wrong and grandiose claims, the US has had substantial influence on the outcomes.

Over two weeks, the US has worked to the sensible position of providing no concrete numbers regarding limiting the little understood contribution of greenhouse gasses. Some radicals have asserted the need for economy crippling, useless gestures of some 40% reduction in carbon dioxide.

US won out, but the media have still proclaimed a victory for greens. Figures.
