How To Explain Copenhagen To Anyone
Comedian Eugene Mirman is going to Copenhagen for Grist to cover the international climate talks. Eugene is a fairly well-informed guy (he at least scans Google News looking for reviews of his latest album), but he's the first to admit that he doesn't live, eat, and smoke climate policy.
At his request, the Grist staff threw together a basic cheat sheet on Copenhagen. It's overly simplistic. It avoids lots of important details. It's probably offensive. In short, it's just enough to help Eugene feign cluefulness when he's accosting world leaders in Denmark.
