Sounds like the start of a joke, right?

The way some see it, it is.

Caritas Internationalis– the international consortium of
Catholic relief agencies– and CIDSE (an alliance of Catholic
development agencies) are denouncing the Cophenhagen climate as “a weak
and morally reprehensible deal which will spell disaster for millions
of the world’s poorest people.”

“It is inconceivable that with more than 100 world leaders gathered
together in one room to make a pact to solve a global problem, they
have failed to commit themselves to adequate and binding obligations”
said CIDSE Secretary General Bernd Nilles.

Shameful, says Caritas.
