It remains to be seen whether it is even a "good start". All these national leaders cheering themselves because they have met, discussed the problems, and have agreed that some stuff should be done. I suppose that having them acknowledge the problem is a baby step in the right direction, but let's see how much actual getting started on their "to do" lists takes place. The signs and symptoms of global warming aka. (euphemistically) climate change are becoming more apparent all time. Can the results of these meetings truly lead us out of the woods before the fires burn out of control?
