Diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks last week confirmed suspicions that the U.S. and Chinese governments held secret talks to undermine worldwide climate emission agreements. According to the cables, in May 2009, Senator John Kerry told the Deputy Prime Minister in Beijiny, Minister Li Kequiang, that they would draw up “a new basis for ‘major cooperation‘ between the United States and China on climate change.”
The cables happened prior to the U.N. climate change conference in Copenhagen that same year (COP15), by all accounts considered to be a failure from an environmental standpoint since both the U.S. and China would not commit to enforced emission reduction targets. Secret discussions between the two countries to resist emissions targets began under President George W. Bush, and helped ensure that no lasting impact would be made by the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, the first attempt to institute worldwide emission reductions, particularly from industrialized nations.

But because this leak actually reveals the complete opposite, of course all it gets is awkward, uncomfortable silence...
*sigh* I used to have so much faith that one day conspiracy theorists would rise up and change the world. I now realize most of them are even bigger sheep than all the regular sheeple
