Hat tip to Th!nkaboutit.com who’ve dug up Copenhagen related cables:
Benno Hansen and myself, as bloggers about Cancun for Th!nk4: Climate Change, are working together on climate change revelations in Wikileaks’ Cablegate. Benno also has an introductory blog in Danish: Hvad Wikileaks lægger til COP15-skandalen
We are now getting a clear picture of US climate change policy over the last decade.
COP15 was bound to fail based on these cables:
FOR SECRETARY CLINTON FROM AMBASSADOR MURPHY, BERLIN EMBASSY
11. (C) As the Chancellor’s remarks underline, German officials want strong U.S. leadership going into the Copenhagen Summit. They are advocating for a unified US/EU position towards the major emerging economies, particularly China and India, to urge them to commit to ambitious national actions at Copenhagen. They are looking for signals of our commitment to domestic and international actions that will allow us to collectively meet science-based targets. German leaders recognize the challenge of passing climate change legislation in the U.S. and have lowered their expectations for the possibility of reaching a legally binding agreement next month at Copenhagen. They have begun to describe the Summit as one step in a larger process — a politically binding framework — and may be preparing the German public for a less ambitious outcome.
The Germans were looking for US leadership… and where was it?
While the world mobilised to support efforts at COP15 - just think of the work of activists and groups such as 350.org – the world’s governments were already planning for its failure.
And what does that say about talks in Cancun (COP16)?
Time for the sceptics to wake up! Climategate was a storm in a tea-cup, Cablegate is the real story.
The scientists have told us what to expect but the world’s politicians are dragging their feet. Their complacency is in stark contrast to the urgency of mitigating and adapting to climate change.
The climate sceptics are intellectual cowards, preferring to hide themselves in a bubble of denial:
“No, no! I won’t believe it! It’s all too much for me, I’m scared!”
They don’t have the courage or energy to accept the challenge climate change presents our civilisation.
More like climate cowards. 
They hide behind the disinformation of right-wing think tanks, con-men like “Lord” Monckton and bloggers like Anthony Watts and Jo Nova.
We need people brave enough to challenge the complacency of politicians.
Time to act; time to make our voices heard.
 Yes, I’m calling climate sceptics cowards and for good reason! Don’t like the name? Too bad! Cablegate reveals the acceptance of the science and the failure of governments such as the US, Saudi Arabia and Australia to act.
