Another problem from the venerable Austinmer Life Saving Club (100 years and going strong): I recommend WolframAlpha for anyone not familiar with the ancient measuring and currency system. http://www.wolframalpha.com
I have been absorbed in the twitter stream (#cop15) on the dying hours of COP15. The agony of the delegates can be easily imagined as a few hold-outs prevent consensus on the "Copenhagen Accord". It is hard enough to stay awake but after some 48 hours of meeting (according to the Saudi delegate, who described the current meeting as the worst he has ever been), it must be hellish torment to deal with such questions as whehter the conference rules permit a document to be agreed with objections noted, or whether the whole thing just falls over.
I am sure the delegates are convinced that the fate of humanity is on their shoulders and so on, but I am also sure that right now there are two thoughts uppermost: "God, we have to get an agreement or I am going to get a right b***cking when I get back to my capital and we haven't got anything we can call an achievement"; and the other, not quite consistent, is "Please let this be over".
Not all the delegates are officials - but Ministers have their own demons as well. And retribution to fear.
I was glad to see the Sudan delegate (spokesman I think for G77 plus China) got a sharp rebuke from the Australian representative because of comparing the Copenhagen Accord to the Holocaust.
Last seen, the meeting was in brief adjournment. It's probably down to a few players now with the dissidents being dragged off to private meetings. Most delegates are probably hunched over wondering why the coffee shop has been closed.
