Disaster in Copenhagen

We’ve spend the day watching the live feed of negotiations from the Bella Center, and unless there is a big change in the next few hours then we will end up with a document that basically says everyone realizes that climate change is an important issue but no one is actually willing to do something about it.Politicians are too busy being lazy and trying to commit to as little as possible instead of listening to the recommendations of the scientists and being bold enough to at least try for a 40% reduction in GHG emissions from 1990 levels by 2020. Or if they really want to use 2005 as the base level have a percentage of reductions that matches that amount knowing that it will be something like 90%.Instead we are currently on track for a 3-degree increase in the temperature of the earth that doens’t matter to any of the leaders because they will all be dead by the time the fallout from climate change becomes obvious. Instead my generation and my childrens generation will be the one’s who have to bear the brunt of climate change devastation. Many youth groups have been wearing t-shirts that read “How old will you be in 2050?” which are particularly poignant now we have been given an agreement that says nothing.Everyone had hoped for not only actual action in Copenhagen but serious targets. Instead we are left with what is basically the worst outcome.
