Kyoto is dead?

I'm sitting on the floor of the ICC in Durban, South Africa. It's the last day of the COP and only 3.5 hours from its supposed end. I'm waiting for news, grabbing every little tidbit I can. It's a tense environment, and Kyoto is on the chopping block. 

The lights just shut off in the building, I don't know why. It seems eerily symbolic.

What's going to come next? How long will we wait?

A friend shared that we seem to be following the law of the jungle - every man for himself.

Here's an excerpt from Kipling's work:

"Now this is the Law of the Jungle—as old and as true as the sky; and the wolf that shall keep it must prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
And as the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk, the Law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack."

The strength of the wolf is the pack. C'mon world, let's get this together.
