[Here is gryposaurus’ answer. Accepting it has some incidence on the due diligence climate blog debates deserves. Let’s hope grypo’s right: farces usually end well. But what if it’s a neverending farce?]
This isn’t really a soap opera. Soap operas have twists and turns that are so unbelievable as to be unable to predict. Everything here is very believable and predictable. Each character is acting just as they have acted all along. It is better described as a farce. It should be rather embarrassing for the players, but it isn’t. The entire climate debate is a farce and completely disconnected from what should be being discussed. And we continue to spin our tires in the mud because of it. Sorry to poor countries. Sorry to the next generation.
