The headline is the story: "Climate talks stumble from Page 1!" Yep. The Third World wants more handouts; Hugo and the Arabs (remember their chart-topping hit from 1972?) are frettin' over not having a seller's market for their crude and China doesn't want anyone lookin' over their shoulder while they cook the books. And me, I'll unbend so far as to point you at an AP story bemoaning the horriawfulness of it all.
No "marvels of science" tag for this one -- 'cos I'm not seein' any yet. Politics, meet Darwin: root, hog -- or die.
