It’s 3:19 AM in Copenhagen, and we just got back from a hastily organized vigil outside the Bella Center. Now we’re listening to webcasts from the plenary inside the Bella Center, listening to Tuvalu, Bolivia, and Venezuela stand up to the "Copenhagen Accord" put forward by the U.S, China, India, and South Africa. Tuvalu’s negotiator, Ian Frye, spoke eloquently and said, "We’re being offered 30 pieces of silver to betray our children." In no uncertain terms, Tuvalu rejected the accord. Boliva now has the floor, and is equally strongly speaking up on behalf of the process initiated by the UN, toward achieving an agreement actually in line with science and justice.
