China Wrecked the Copenhagen Deal
Mark Lynas wrote in The Guardian How do I know China wrecked the Copenhagen deal? I was in the room. "Copenhagen was a disaster. That much is agreed. But the truth about what actually happened is in danger of being lost amid the spin and inevitable mutual recriminations. The truth is this: China wrecked the talks, intentionally humiliated Barack Obama, and insisted on an awful 'deal' so western leaders would walk away carrying the blame. How do I know this? Because I was in the room and saw it happen."
It's a must read.
