It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Agreeing to work to agree to work to...

As Maribo (aka Simon Donner) points out, the forward momentum these days is well nigh infinitesimal. This is from a declaration of the Asian and Pacific nations (APEC) recently:
We agree to work to achieve a common understanding on a long-term aspirational global emissions reduction goal to pave the way for an effective post-2012 international arrangement.
In case you find that hard to parse, Simon elucidates nicely.
