The Copenhagen process, or what has become the official name, is strolling along. Most countries (read: politicians) have signed the no-one-knows-really-what-to-call- it document, though some after deadline. Reviving Kyoto is still on the table, recently half heartedly suggested by the European Union (read: a bunch of politicians from countries with different agendas).
At the same time, the UN (read: even more people with different agendas) has decided to let new people have another look at the IPCC report that was the official document before the above mentioned became desperate to at least take some action. Before it became apparent that the report in many aspects was flawed. No one suggests it was altogether wrong.
The scientific work is starting – hopefully – all over again. The political game continues as if nothing, really, has happened.
In real life, people are constantly, sometimes more seriously confronted with choices. Make a huge investment? Buy a house? Get married? Buy a dog?
