Bali Climate Change Deal Reached

At Bali a dramatic one and a half hour period seperated the world from the effective brakdown of post-Kyoto talks. Based on a reading of the US position going into the talks, and on the complex beurocracy that exists at UNFCCC meetings the result was as good as we where likely to see. Based on the somewhat more important meter of physical reality progress is appalingly slow. There is still a question in my mind over weather the UNFCCC process will deliver substantial mitigation of climate change. Perhaps a more flexible meeting of major economies, led by a post-Bush USA will reach a deal? For the time being the process moves on and although its often difficult to decide weather to laugh or cry in this case the US u-turn put a smile on my face!
