Wow! The one thing that the U.S. and China can agree upon is that both countries don't care that the Earth is becoming hotter than hell. The article states something that I think I have heard before:
Harlan Watson, the head of the American delegation, said in an e-mail that the U.S. goal is to produce a report that is "useful to the policy community" and is "supported by scientific and economic data."
Just reading this makes me feel doomed.
