    COPENHAGEN — China, India and other developing nations boycotted U.N. climate talks on Monday, bringing negotiations to a halt with their demand that rich countries discuss much deeper cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions.

    Representatives from developing countries — a bloc of 135 nations — said they refused to participate in any formal working groups at the 192-nation summit until the issue was resolved.

    The African-led move was a setback for the Copenhagen talks, which were already faltering over long-running disputes between rich and poor nations over emissions cuts and financing for developing countries to deal with climate change.

    However, the move Monday was largely seen as a ploy to shift the agenda to the responsibilities of the industrial countries and make emissions reductions the first item for discussion when world leaders begin arriving Tuesday.

    "I don't think the talks are falling apart, but we're losing time," said Kim Carstensen, of the World Wildlife Fund. The developing countries "are making a point."

    Anything that throws a monkey wrench into the bullshit climate scheming is fine with me. And while we're at it someone please aim a nice heavy one at AlGore's noggin.
