'Organized Hypocrisy' at Durban Climate Talks
Lee Lane, RealClearScience
"Organized hypocrisy" saved the recent UN climate talks in Durban South Africa. The phrase refers to a common feature of diplomacy. Statesmen often tacitly agree to pretend to believe each other's duplicities. The fiction saves all involved from the inconveniences that would result were the lack of agreement to break into the open.
