Representatives from nearly 200 countries are gathering in Durban, South Africa, to negotiate strategies for dealing with climate change, including how to extend the soon-to-expire Kyoto Protocol.
Efforts to negotiate a successor to the Kyoto pact, which committed industrialized nations to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by a set amount by 2012, have been on hold since the failure of the climate conference in Copenhagen two years ago.
Previous debates have focused on how to balance the responsibilities of developed nations with those of emerging and still-developing countries, and few believe this conference, which begins Monday, will result in a new agreement.

America is broke. No more money for these people. Too bad, so sad, they killed the goose that laid the golden eggs.
Let’s start by grounding Air Farce One. At $180,000 per hour, cutting a few less days of travel by Obozo should allow him to save a little money (which we don’t have) for the UN scammers’ begging cup. If he’s such a genius let him (and the Goron himself) attend Durban by telefrickingconference!!!
I hope every one has noticed that they don’t hold their meetings north of the equator any more. Guess they got tired of that white, solid, global warming falling out of the sky.
