Things are going swimmingly at the Rio+20 Earth Summit

Greenpeace is apoplectic and has already declared the summit an "epic failure" even before the world leaders have shown up:
The future we want has gotten a little further away today. Rio+20 has turned into an epic failure. It has failed on equity, failed on ecology and failed on economy.
It has also presumably failed on delivering massive anti-capitalist world government policies to stifle growth in developed countries. If Greenpeace is unhappy, then I'm delighted. Cheers!

There's still time to check out the beach at Copacabana.
