We are a lot closer to the latter than the former though. Embarrassing as that is.

Yes efforts to limit CO2 have been inadequate, but it's better than business-as-usual.

And it's not either-or here: the US can cut its CO2 emissions and then start wagging its finger at developing countries. Rather than sticking that same metaphorical finger up its ass and saying "I'm not going to do anything until everyone else is already doing the right thing"!
