Unsurprisingly, not much happened at the latest and greatest climate conference.  Many thanks to the hackers who spun up a flurry of negative PR for a meeting that only had the slightest chance of reaching a meaningful agreement in the first place.

What is utterly discouraging is that nothing will come of this.  It was a waste of time (emphasis mine):

“The agreement recognizes that an increase in global temperature should be kept to two degrees Celsius — the threshold that UN scientists say is needed to avert serious climate change — but the deal is not legally binding and has no long-term global targets for emissions cuts.”

So really, in essence, let us continue to our plunder of the earth.  We will make the requisite noises:

“Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the agreement “realistic” and said Canada was “very comfortable” with it.”

You know if Harper agrees with this particular tidbit of climate folly it is can only be a hollow shell of dank turpitude and risible half truths.  In other words nothing will change.

For the eternally optimistic:

“Ban Ki-moon, the secretary general of the United Nations, welcomed the climate deal as an “essential beginning,” but said it must be transformed into a legally binding treaty next year.”

Yep.  The US will also get Israel to respect the 1967 borders, pay reparations to Iraq for ruining their country and will make peace with Osama bin Laden.  I’ll also be having a piping hot mug cocoa and a blueberry scone with Pope while we discuss how he should not act like such a douche bag.
