Did anything significant result from the recent international climate talks in Barcelona?

    Unfortunately the short answer is no.  Richer, more industrialized countries and poorer countries which are still developing were not able to find a compromise.  African countries say that cutting emissions by 40% would stop the development of their countries, and many poor countries are calling upon the richer countries for funding help.  In these rough economic times, however, that call probably will go unanswered.  The talks continue in Copenhagen this month, so hopefully those will be more productive.
