Anger erupts at U.N. climate summit as major economies resist bold action

Sure they resist bold action. They know that this comes with major pain for their citizens and that this also translates into losses at the ballot box. Even the unaccountable leaders of China fear popular backlashes. So, they are fine with grandiose but hollow declarations and no action. I should glad as I don’t buy the climate hocuspocus anyhow. But I am not. The world needs some stern and decisive leadership to get out of the rut it has put itself into. I did not like the Cold War very much but more and more I come to understand that it gave the world much-needed focus. We lost our Mojo and so we allow kids with iPhones to tyrannize us with Lala Land visions. So, there is anger? Not enough.
