Poznan Climate Change Conference Underway

The United Nations Climate Change conference has begun with reports of criticism of the failure of industrialized nations to agree to meaningful targets for emission controls and financial and technical support to developing nations. A substantial amount of the criticism by environmentalists has reportedly been directed at the Bush Administration. Apparently to underscore this criticism, the chief of the U.S. delegation has purportedly indicated that there will not be agreement on specific emissions goals for 2020.
