Why is Obama delaying any binding treaty to reduce emissions in China until a year after Copenhagen? Why not sooner?

    Any binding treaty between the U.S. and China about emissions reduction requires both sides taking into considerations a lot of different parties special interests within their own countries first. Then the proposed legislation has to be drawn up, then changed, then drawn up again, ect. ect. until everyone is perfectly happy (which takes a long time to do when it comes to international treaties). If Obama is waiting to get started on this important initiative, it is probably because he wants to be able to devote his full attention to it, and right now there are more pressing issues at home that must be dealt with before he starts on this long term project.
