Low Expectations Met

Following China, the U.S and almost every other country, it is now Singapore’s turn to try and put a good spin on the Copenhagen Climate Summit. Singapore says it supports the "sentiment, commitment and above all, good faith" of the Copenhagen Accord even though it is “not prefect”.

Personally I think it’s just a polite way of saying the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen was a total failure and the Copenhagen Accord isn’t worth the paper it is written on.

People who read my blog knows that I have low, low expectations for the summit and sadly it made all of my expectations. People are blaming China (true), Russia (true), the U.S (true), the developing countries (true), the protestors (true) and everyone else for the failure.

Fact is there is plenty of blame to go around as everyone was more concern about their own national interest and there were no heroes in Copenhagen.
