By Juliet Eilperin

Also in the Globe, Beth Daley chronicles the precarious state of the U.N.-sponsored talks right now.

Since the one area where the talks are making progress is preservation of tropical forests, check out this video of Doug Boucher from the Union of Concerned Scientists explaining the issue.

And Clean Skies, a television network that receives financing from the U.S. natural gas industry, provides its account of the latest back-and-forth in Copenhagen, where U.S. special climate envoy Todd Stern is front and center. You can download it in both a DV file and MP3 format.

One of the film celebrities who keeps popping up here is Chinese martial arts star Jet Li, who not only subbed in for China's climate change minister Xie Zhenhua at a side event here, but he's briefing a bunch of U.S. environmental donors along with former vice president Al Gore on Wednesday in a closed-door meeting.
