Due to the topic of my blog I feel compelled to comment on the outcome of COP15, but the truth is I don't have much to say.
Some countries managed to create some sort of non-legally binding accord that will help poorer countries curb their emissions, but did not come up with any actual targets for top emitting nations. So... this is better than nothing. I don't doubt that it's hard to get nearly over 100 leaders to agree on something. But should we be comparing it to nothing, or the ideal? If it's not legally binding, you could say it doesn't mean much. Or you could choose to believe that they will follow up and continue to build on this accord.
Canada managed to look as uninterested as possible in this conference. Big surprise.
I just have a big case of the 'whatevers' when it comes to this topic. It's all been said before.
