Paying the price of a Durban victory

The trouble with the Durban agreement is that it's based on an economic world order that is unravelling in front of us. Meanwhile, Australia is courageously – and uncomfortably – alone.

The meetings of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change long ago changed from being a forum to negotiate a solution for global warming to being a spin-fest to hide its failure.

Did this happen at the failed talks in Buenos Aires in 1998, just a year after the Kyoto Protocol was triumphantly signed, or in 2001 in Bonn, when President George W Bush refused either to attend or to sign up?
