William Connolley: Hot air
I've pretty well given up paying the slightest attention to climate-change negotiations (err, hence this post...), as they seem to be utterly pointless. The political response to something is to talk about it, and so they do, spending large amounts of money and emitting large amounts of CO2 in the process. But as Nature admits, these are talks about talks about talks. Obama's election is more significant. All these stupid conferences should be cancelled.May '08: The Opinionator: Solomon - FP Comment
Next to Al Gore, William Connolley may be the world's most influential person in the global warming debate.
