A Summit That's Hard to Swallow

James Chapman, of The Daily Mail: "Just two days ago, Gordon Brown was urging us all to stop wasting food and combat rising prices and a global shortage of provisions. But yesterday the Prime Minister and other world leaders sat down to an 18-course gastronomic extravaganza at a G8 summit in Japan, which is focusing on the food crisis. The dinner, and a six-course lunch, at the summit of leading industrialised nations on the island of Hokkaido, included delicacies such as caviar, milkfed lamb, sea urchin and tuna, with champagne and wines flown in from Europe and the US."

A Worthless Gust of Hot Air

The Independent UK: "The leaders of the world's eight largest economies committed themselves to 'avoiding the most serious consequences of climate change'. They also set themselves a goal of halving global emissions by the middle of the century. It is hard to fault the target. But how is it going to be achieved? There is no detail in the communique; no medium-term targets; no commitment to agreeing a legally binding successor to the Kyoto protocol at Copenhagen next year. There is not even agreement on the date from which CO2 cuts will be measured. By far the biggest problem, though, is the lack of detail on the method. These leaders can set all the long-term goals they like, but without realistic means of achieving them, any document they produce will simply be a gust of hot air."

The Anti-Climate Summit

Foreign Policy in Focus columnist Walden Bello writes: "The G8 position is a giant step backward. It may have effectively undermined the prospects for an effective global climate strategy for the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol that is expected to be finalized at the crucial UN meeting in Copenhagen in December 2009."
