I admire this guy for taking matters in to his one hands and wasting no time. Just wanted to find out general opinion :) what do you guys think.
Copenhagen, Denmark - Delegates at the U.N. Climate Change Conference are "running short on time" to reach agreement on a deal, U.S. President Barack Obama told them Friday.
"There is no time to waste," he said. "Now I believe it's the time for the nations and the people of the world to come behind a common purpose. We are ready to get this done today, but there has to be movement on all sides."

Ahhh yes another "the time is now" speech. Global warming added to by a fast plane, warm words and wasted breath. The conference will accomplish everything and nothing.

From an AP article: (http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20091218/ts_nm/us_climate_copenhagen_obama)

Some environmentalists criticized his remarks.

"This speech appears to be more of a face-saving exercise for President Obama than an attempt to unite countries around a truly planet-saving agreement," said Friends of the Earth U.S. President Erich Pica in a statement.

"The U.S. has failed to significantly improve upon the weak position it brought to these talks."
