Protocol more important than the Earth! Richard Black, the BBC's Environment correspondent, has reported that the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, won't be attending Rio+ as it clashes with the celebrations for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next year.

Obviously it's more important to be seen in the right places than to do something worthwhile to save the planet. No disrespect to the minister attending in his place but, the presence of the PM does, at the very least, give the impression we take matters seriously - more seriously than pomp and ceremony anyway.
