U.N. Climate Change Talks End With Plans To Talk About This Again Next Year

There, there.Did you forget to stay up late waiting for results from the U.N. climate talks in Doha? Well, you'll be happy to know global warming is solved thanks to a bold consensus decision to take aggressive international action on carbon emissions and sustainability. No, wait, that is not what happened. Here's a typically sunny reaction: "It’s very, very depressing. There is nothing [in the text] at all on finance, nothing about emissions reduction, it's all about workshops and talk shops. There is no commitment by [by rich countries] on anything."

Then again, "low expectations" were the only expectation at all. Sorry, polar bears and etc.

They were all probably distracted by watching that ultrabook love story unfold.

I don't understand why they hold these things in Doha. Better an ice floe in August, with a couple of hungry polar bears as floe-mates.

I have been writing about polar bear on animal essays for the past 3 years. And it still amaze me how the way they live.
