I've been asked many times what success will look like in Paris. Here's my scorecard and my predictions of five key elements that -- if all were achieved -- would constitute an exceptionally successful 21st Conference of the Parties:
When I heard that Amazon was doing a miniseries based on Philip K. Dick's Hugo-winning novel from the Sixties, I realized that it had been sitting on my shelves between DeLillo and Didion for years. Once I picked up the 1992 paperback (with a weird cover) and dusted it off, I couldn't put it down.
You would think the markets would be trading down with the World's largest tourist destination suffering the worst terror attack in their history right at the start of the holiday shopping season.
America is not at risk from North Korea or even the other Asian powers Snyder cites. Washington does not need the alliance with Seoul to deter Pyongyang. Like most of America's alliances, the U.S.-ROK treaty is entirely one-sided.

In a case of better late than never, the Obama Administration on October 27 dispatched the guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen to breach China's newly-claimed 12-mile zone around one of its just-completed artificial islands in the Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea.
