  •  my hope is that issues excluded from this accord (6+ / 0-)

    will become included next year. Stories this past weekend were strange in that many don't know the legal effect of this accord. Obama was not sure if he had to sign the accord which is not legally binding.

    The conference took "note" of the accord instead of formally approving it, which was designed to make the accord operational even though no formal UN approval. UN secretary general urges nations to transform accord into legal binding treaty, indicating accord is one step only in the process.

    A meeting may be scheduled to discuss the legality of the accord, but some say the accord is weaker than legally binding treaty and political deal, that was objected by public before when such talk existed.
