Cancún – Already Lost?

Because of lack of time, today only a quotation from a short article about the probable failure of the forthcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Cancún:

[L]et’s see what happened to the hurricanes threatening Cancún: Paula went on to drench Cuba; Richard pummeled Belize, and crossed the Yucatan peninsula, threatening the Texas coast. Cancún may have dodged the storms, but let’s not forget they hit elsewhere. Analogously, an uneventful meeting in Cancún may dodge the kind of storm we saw in Copenhagen. But the impacts of inaction, like those of hurricanes Paula and Richard, will be felt elsewhere, both by developing and developed countries.
