Progress in Copenhagen

They kinda, sorta reached an agreement to reach an agreement someday on climate change at Copenhagen this week. It's being roundly condemned by green activists and other stakeholders as a sell-out, a failure and some kind of disaster. And of course, it's all Obama's fault. He's no better than Bush. Worse than a thousand Hitlers. But this is actually progress.

For crying out loud, am I wrong in recalling that under Bush, the talks broke down so badly, they wouldn't even bother to meet anymore? And Obama cooly walked into a secret meeting between China, Brazil and India and got some additional consensus out of them. I can't call it a failure, it's a partial success.

I'm willing to take that and celebrate it. Sure as hell beats no progress at all.
