Oh no! It looks as if the coming Copenhagen climate change, prosperity murdering summit will not produce an enforceable treaty to raise taxes, stifle employment, and kill energy production. From the story:

A global treaty to fight climate change will be postponed by at least six months and possibly a year or more, senior negotiators and politicians conceded today. In a day of gloomy statements, the world’s key industrialised nations said they had abandoned hope of a legally binding treaty at the Copenhagen summit next month and had begun to plan only for a meeting of world leaders. The stark statements follow weeks of pessimism and represent a significant downgrading of the summit’s goal. In London, Ed Miliband, the UK climate change secretary, became the first British politician to acknowledge publicly that Copenhagen would produce no legal climate change treaty.

We’re all doomed!  At least that’s what UN head hysteric, Ban Ki-moon said a few months ago.
