As the shouting dies down, it's increasingly clear that the Copenhagen Climate Summit was largely pointless. Absent a real agreement that he could simply sign on to, Barack Obama made a fumbling, angry, cliche-filled speech which disappointed his fellow eco-communists.
As the purpose of the Summit was always more about redistribution of the West's wealth than actual climate change, many attendees were initially enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton's offer for the US to spearhead a $100 billion a year giveaway to developing nations. Fortunately, it now seems more likely that Hell will freeze over before this "international" fund actually starts paying out.
And so the Copenhagen carnival of climategate, faked data, bad poetry, and economic revolution has accomplished nothing...other than adding untold tons of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere from the private jets and limos of the Green intelligentsia.
