California and UK in climate pact 

This is all very well and very laudable but just more than a tiny bit surreal. Our Tony (Yo Blair!) and Arnie Schwartzenegger (you check the spelling!) have signed an agreement to reduce carbon emissions. OK, Arnie is signing in his capacity as governor of California and not, as The Terminator but surely this sort of thing should be done at a national level? Isn't this like Brazil signing a trade treaty with Cheshire?

It is a start, I suppose, and shows that Bush doesn't entirely represent his people's views on climate change. There is a glimmer of hope but it's just a little tainted.
