In case you missed it, the Bali Climate Conference has come to an end. I’ve felt that the coverage of this important conference has not been spectacular. For a recap, you can visit the PBS News Hour piece, Bali Climate Conference Ends with Compromise (you can watch, listen, or read the transcript). The bottom line is that a new “road map” (is everything a road map these days?) for climate change was negotiated, but the US, which is the only leading industrial nation to not agree to the old “road map” from Kyoto Japan in 1997. Let’s hope that our country catches up to the late 1990s at some point.
