Copenhagen accord reached: We're screwed
It's time to buy a shotgun, stock up on baked beans and head for higher ground:
Western leaders began to leave Copenhagen in the early hours of Saturday morning, claiming to have secured a global agreement to keep global warming below two degrees Celsius. But the deal provoked immediate anger for failing to include concrete measures to reach that target, and scientists at the talks said it would set the world on a path to 3.5 degrees of warming by 2100.
Like anyone with an IQ over 70 seriously thought any meaningful agreement would come out of the Copenhagen talk-a-thon.
