Kellogg-Briand Climate Pact Signed in Paris!

The climate is saved! As expected, the UN climate summit today delivered a triumph—a climate agreement (not a treaty) that every nation has agreed to sign!

The agreement commits no one to doing anything they don’t end up wanting to do, and the notional wealth transfers will remain exactly that—notional, to be taken up again next year at COP-22. It is sure to be just as effective at stopping greenhouse gas emissions as the Kellogg-Briand Pact was at ending war in the mid-20th century.

As expected, everyone in Paris is engaged in a round of hearty back-slapping:
