Climate change: That didn't take long

Climate change talks are starting in Doha, and New Zelaand has already won a "Fossil of the Day" award on the first day:

The First Place Fossil is awarded to USA, Canada, Russia, Japan and New Zealand for running away from a legally binding, multilateral rules based regime...

The Second Place Fossil is awarded to New Zealand. Unlike its neighbor to the west, New Zealand decided not to put its target into the second commitment period, citing spurious grounds when the reality is that it is just a massive display of irresponsibility. It's island partners in the Pacific should think again before ever trusting NZ again.

First-equal and second. Heckuva job you're doing there, National. Way to go with upholding our international reputation and our "100% pure" branding.
