Waterfall puts Chavez in a froth

Being angry about the devil is a standard refrain for Hugo Chavez. In 2006 he declared that George Bush was Lucifer incarnate, and just last week he told the Copenhagen climate summit that in Barack Obama's presence he could "still smell sulphur".

David King: There is a way ahead after Copenhagen

Leading article: Copenhagen: our lost chance

Perhaps our expectations were too high. Yet we should be clear about what precisely was disappointing about the accord that was reached in Copenhagen yesterday, and what was worthwhile. We have known for some months that a legally binding treaty was most unlikely. The crushing disappointment was that the undertaking to sign such a treaty by the end of next year was dropped from the final document. What was achieved in Denmark was no more than the old standby of diplomacy: agreement in principle. That principle is important, of course. For the first time, all the nations of the world accept that climate change is a problem and that they must do something about it.
