Monckton's far flung crash

Lord Monckton came, saw and got flung off a camel – and then banned from UN climate talks for life. This merely served as a distraction however, as negotiations failed to bring up more than a few silver linings.

Anyone expecting grand commitments to emission reductions and the provision of finance will have been disappointed with this year's UN climate talks, which ended on Saturday. Held this year in Doha, Qatar, the summit produced only one new pledge to cut greenhouse gas output and only modest promises of financial support. The deal will likely do little to prevent global warming from exceeding the 2 degree Celsius ceiling thought necessary to avoid the most serious effects of climate change.
