Talks ..... for the sake of talk?

It looks very much as if the next round of climate change talks has resulted in ......... well, nothing.

As reported by Channel 4, the much hyped Hawaiian negotiations have agreed no deal on targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Lots of hot air, and again no progress. What a waste of time!

But, as ever, it does rather depend on just who is doing the reporting, as this from exemplifies - "participants praised what they saw as a new willingness by the United States to discuss possible solutions", and, "Delegates said the U.S. showed a new flexibility since earlier climate change meetings, and that they were able to talk frankly about their differences."

Perhaps our friends over the pond ARE slowly starting to make a slight shift in their stance?
