This MSNBC article reports that international negotiators in Barcelona are working on a global climate change treaty. However, it seems they've settled on a political agreement rather than a legally binding treaty, meaning that no one will have to follow the agreement if they don't want to. Aren't we at the point where we need concrete goals, and penalties for harming the environment? Enough of the carrot, break out the stick!
