Quoted in Copenhagen

Dollar value, like beauty, is apparently in the eye of the beholder:

"One hundred billion dollars is a lot. It can have tangible effects."

--Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on the U.S. pledge to help fund $100 billion annually by 2020 for poor countries to cope with climate change.

"A hundred billion is never enough, but it's a small step."
--Indian environment minister Jairam Ramesh, who met with U.S. representatives Wednesday morning.
