United Nations climate change negotiations in China make little progress
Who was it who said that insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”?
Oh yes, that was Albert Einstein, a pretty smart guy I reckon.
I wonder what The Great One would say about the spectacle of yet another series of United Nations talks on climate change failing to make much progress on an international agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
“Failure” was the word out of Tianjin, China today, where the week-long talks, involving 3,000 participants from more than 170 nations, are nearing an end with “no consensus in sight,” according to a dispatch from the Environment News Service.
It was hoped that these talks would make some progress in advance of the next climate change talks, in Cancun, Mexico on November 29. My bet is that I’ll be writing something very similar toward the end of those talks.
