Hillary Tries To Defend The Failed Copenhagen Climate Summit

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a tough time defending her record on global warming in Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate. Clinton scrambled to defend a climate deal she helped broker — a deal widely regarded as a failure.

“But I have been on the forefront of dealing with climate change, starting in 2009, when President [Barack] Obama and I crashed a meeting with the Chinese and got them to sign up to the first international agreement to combat climate change that they’d ever joined,” Clinton said during CNN’s first Democratic presidential debate.

Clinton was referring to a 2009 United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen she attended while Secretary of State under President Obama. The Obama administration had hyped up the summit, saying they could get countries to sign onto a legally-binding agreement to cut carbon dioxide emissions.

Despite the high expectations that Obama and Clinton could rally the world behind a climate agreement, the summit quickly fell apart and no legally-binding agreement was signed. The summit was widely regarded as a failure, and even Obama was disappointed in the results.
