Oh, this is good.
…there is a very real hope that the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21), which starts on Monday, will be the last. Either Prince Charles and Dame Vivienne will prevail, and COP 21 will rescue Mother Earth from destruction by agreeing worldwide legally binding carbon emission restraints; or they won’t, and then, by their own logic, it will be too late for any international conference to do anything ever again, so they might as well shut up.
In case you were wondering, the author takes a third position: to wit, nothing will happen, and… nothing will then happen. Which is very sensible of the fellow… and by that I mean that I agree with him, of course. Nothing will happen, and nothing will happen. Which is the solution that everybody wants, really. Well, everybody who isn’t a dupe, of course.
