Because Obama is representing us as the President, I don't appreciate what the Chinese are doing. But on a personal note, with regards to Obama as an individual, I almost side with the Chinese. Because I think that whole conference is a farce and not in the best interests of the US.By Chris Green

China is attempting to scupper chances of a comprehenive agreement at the Copenhagen climate summit by using delaying tactics, sources inside the negotiations have told The Independent.
At an emergency meeting convened at the Bella Center this morning, Barack Obama and Gordon Brown assembled 26 heads of state in an attempt to revive a deal. But China's Premier Wen Jiabao did not attend and was replaced by vice foreign minister He Yafei. This afternoon, the US president and his secretary of state Hillary Clinton called another meeting with China, but were snubbed again when only three low-level Chinese delegates arrived.
