More hot air on global warming

The latest United Nations climate summit in Lima finally adjourned Sunday after issuing a watered-down “agreement” to address global warming even its supporters admitted was weak.

The deal that emerged after two-weeks of negotiations and two all-night bargaining sessions puts off every major decision 195 countries — including Canada — must make, until another UN meeting a year from now in Paris.

This has been the UN’s standard operating procedure in global climate negotiations for years, but this year, things were supposed to be different in Lima.
