COP15 Is Over
- ClimateGate was a sham, but that didn't stop good old politics from throwing a few wrenches into the works. A 'non-binding-agreement' might be better than nothing, but a lot remains to be desired. Keep in touch with finishing coverage in our road to Copenhagen series.

COP15 & Schwarzenegger: "We Are The Climanators" - With multi-national agreement on the iffy side, there remains a chance that local and regional governments can create some degree of progress on the climate front, and California's Governor claims to advocate this.
