Doha finally concluded

Wow – AP and Reuters just reported that Doha finally came to an agreement to extend the Kyoto Protocol to 2020.  Here’s a link to the pre-final decision document:  http://www3.unog.ch/dohaclimatechange/sites/default/files/FCCCKPCMP2012L9.pdf

It’s really impossible for me to tell whether any parts of this draft document were changed before being adopted.  Decisions about financial assistance were apparently postponed.  As expected, only European Union and a couple of other states are part of the emissions limit extension deal, covering just a fraction of global emissions.
