The Copenhagen (or was that Hopenchangen?) Climate Change Conference is a bust, despite all the rainbows and sunshine the media tries to blow up your ass. It was doomed from the beginning, what with the entire theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming pretty much disproved by the fact that he scientists seem to have faked their 'facts'. It was bound to trip up because of the conflicting interests of business and state (yeah, like the Chinese were gonna keep any promises they made, and the Indians just flat out gave the world the middle finger on Carbon limits).
Of course, it got progressively worse. Al Gore made an appearance to...do what no one seems to know. Probably to make more money, and a bigger ass, out of himself. You know your little soiree is fucked when Al shows up. Then the Prince of Wales shows up, talking apocalypse in the next seven months, trailing an entourage big enough to choke a Pharaoh, after spewing 2,600 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere just to get to the conference, while the average Briton spews 11 tons in a year, and the hypocrisy is lost even on him. These two sorta make your cause look ridiculous.
Then there were the riots. About what, no one seems to know. Save the planet; Storm a Starbucks. It doesn't make any sense at all.
And then, The One arrived and put the kiss of death on the whole thing. According to the tales being told, Obama was so desperate to a) get a deal that he could use for propaganda purposes, and b) get someone... anyone... to talk to him, that he basically threw a tantrum and then behaved as if the whole thing were some sort of made-for-TV drama -- with him as the star. He made an ass out of himself, declared victory (without explaining what that meant), and then left before anyone could discover the truth.
The only things missing were the giant "Mission Accomplished" sign and a carrier landing.
But, according to those who were there and covered the (fortunate) catastrophe of Copenhagen, the Savior of the Universe left a bad taste in a lot of mouths, and lied through his teeth to the American public, just so he could buff his 'image' and throw a bone to the foaming-at-the-mouth Left.
What an asshole.
