    But, two cheers for some real progress, more than seemed possible.  

    Life is good. Injustice? Not so much.

    •  Same here. I appreciate the pros and cons (0+ / 0-)

      discussed in the comments. I had low expectations so this agreement exceeded them. I see this agreement as movement in the right direction with all parties on board. It's a start, that we can use to push for more effective action.

      I'm hoping that the dropping cost of wind and solar power will make them economically preferred in the very near future. With peak conventional oil here now, there will be strong cost pressure against rising auto use. Economically driven changes in energy use will be favorable in a few years, IMO.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
