China at Copenhagen:
China's strategy was simple: block the open negotiations for two weeks, and then ensure that the closed-door deal made it look as if the west had failed the world's poor once again.
India doesn't come off looking much better. The moral of the story is not to try very hard to mitigate global warming; the collective action problem is intractable. Time and money are better spent anticipating and adapting to future climate change. This is a good start.
