While people have been voraciously devouring WikiLeaks disclosures this past week there's been a major UN climate change summit underway in Cancun that seems to have fallen off the radar screen.
I've been searching about for news of what the delegates have accomplished and - nothing. No word. Oh, a few speeches and a bit of grumbling here and there but no news of anything remotely substantive much less some breakthrough.
I guess there's no point in saying "back to the drawing board." After all, Cancun was supposed to be the drawing board. Greenpeace climate director Wendell Trio described the summit this way. "This is a meeting of emitters anonymous. They haven't even taken the first steps to admit there is a problem."
