    the expectation was an announcement of "we dont do shit...ever."

    I guess we are so despairing that frankly the US even agreeing not to destroy life on earth in some vague principle is astonishing.  

    Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.

      gs are busy either destroying it or burying their heads even further up the asses of polluters.

      I don't know if it's been in public or not, but every delegate clearly understands that the US will talk when 2020 is part of the discussion.

      Climate Science, on the other hand, seems to point to 2015 as a good time to stop fucking up so badly if we don't want life to get too excessively unbearable.

        This agreement kicks the can down the road.  That is really dangerous.

        Unbearable is a good word in the sense that life will not bear it, and when life does not bear somethign the result is death.

        Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.
