From the New York Post:
President Obama reportedly was reluctant to attend the final day of the UN’s Copenhagen climate-change summit unless it was front-end wired to be a major political success.
But he went anyway, was twice humiliated in public by the Chinese premier and then finally settled for what the White House hailed as a “meaningful agreement.”
Really? A top aide admitted that the deal was basically just “an important first step” that was “not sufficient to combat the threat of climate change.”
Then Obama himself dropped the other shoe: The agreement contains no specific commitments on carbon emissions, only pledges that “will not be legally binding.”
Obama basically went to Copenhagen and did nothing along with the rest of the worlds leaders. Waste of time and a LOT of pollution from private jets and entourages. Well done! Personally I am thrilled, this is the last thing we need. Still, what a waste.
