Why Copenhagen Failed?

This is a fascinating article describing why the Copenhagen Climate Conference failed to produce a binding legal international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The reasons include Chinese obstructionism, U.S. domestic politics and its own desire for economic prosperity, the rise of power of developing nations, and the fall of Europe. The article is titled, “How China and India Sabotaged the UN Climate Summit.” See http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/0,1518,692861,00.html
