A Summary of the Week

From Oxfam:
The summit has been a mirage. The promises look good from a distance, but the details are hard to see, and when the world’s poorest people most need help, pledges could still vanish into thin air.
They are dead on with their assessment.
But this had to be the best moment of the week.  It comes from Director of Greenpeace International Dr. Kumi Nadoo who opens with the following statement:

Well, generally I am very favorable to the idea of recycling and reusing, but I have to tell you, that what we’ve heard mostly over the last week is the recycling of old commitments and the restating of things that have not been delivered that have been promised a long time ago.
Definitely watch his conversation as he gets better after that opening statement.
