NYT on Bali

The New York Times editorial board agrees that the Bali climate conference ended in "disappointment."
Despite pleas from their European allies, the Americans flatly rejected the idea of setting even provisional targets for reductions in greenhouse gases. And they refused to give what the rest of the world wanted most: an unambiguous commitment to reducing America’s own emissions. Without that, there is little hope that other large emitters, including China, will change their ways.
Remember when Bush campaigned on reducing carbon dioxide emissions? That looks more and more like a deliberate lie.
