The Copenhagen Conference (December 7-18, 2009) may be our last, best chance.
But a wise person (Aesop? Lou Holtz?) once quipped,
"When all is said and done, more will be said than done".In fact, UN Climate Chief Yvo De Boer has recently warned against a "half-baked climate deal":
"'The time for speeches is over' before final negotiations in December, he said. 'Our planet is being plundered and pillaged on an unprecedented scale.'I bet he's looking at you, Canada!
"De Boer said the EU, China and Japan are taking needed steps to prevent climate change, but other countries must do better."
