Future-Forward: Innovations for a world that does not yet exist

Our fearless leaders unite…and agree to stand still

In a stunning failure to lead in a time when we need it most, world leaders met at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit and agreed to postpone the challenging issues of climate change and use Copenhagen to set non-binding agreements. With Congress unable to pass any binding climate change legislation, Obama couldn’t take a strong stance, and without US leadership, other nations followed suit. The delegation also failed to move forward on any decisions regarding international trade and economic policy.

It’s always encouraging to know that our global leaders, when faced with a challenge, can be relied upon to do absolutely nothing.
