More Mush From the Wimps

12:20 PM -- Tough times call for tough waffles. Today's New York Times reports from the G-8 summit in Rusutsu, Japan:

    Pledging to “move toward a low-carbon society,” leaders of the world’s richest nations endorsed Tuesday the idea of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2050, but... refused to set a short-term target for reducing the gases that scientists agree are warming the planet...

    On food security, the leaders said they were “deeply concerned..."

    On aid to Africa, they agreed to monitor their own progress...
Well. That shouldn't be too hard.

re: More Mush From the Wimps Gordon Brown and his fellow world leaders have sparked outrage after it was disclosed they enjoyed a six-course lunch followed by an eight-course dinner at the G8 summit where the global food crisis tops the agenda...

The dinner consisted of 18 dishes in eight courses including caviar, smoked salmon, Kyoto beef and a "G8 fantasy dessert".

The banquet was accompanied by five different wines from around the world including champagne, a French Bourgogne and sake...

The dinner came just hours after a "working lunch" consisting of six courses including white asparagus and truffle soup, crab and a supreme of chicken.
