RT @TheGuardian – Copenhagen climate change conference: ‘Fourteen days to seal history’s judgment on this generation’

Earlier today, 56 major newspapers in 45 countries and 20 languages joined together to publish a shared editorial on climate change ahead of the Copenhagen summit, a project largely led by the Guardian.

As the Guardian points out, in a sort of primer to the actual editorial piece, it is immediately obvious that the “the sole representative of the world’s second biggest polluter” – us over here in the U.S. – is the Miami Herald. Then this line is just too good not to quote: “It is hard not to be struck by the parallel with the Kyoto agreement when the US stood to one side as the world began to move against climate change.”
