Rio+20, the unhappy environmental summit

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) -- It was hard to find a happy soul at the end of the Rio+20 environmental summit.Not within the legion of bleary-eyed government negotiators from 188 nations who met in a failed attempt to find a breakthrough at the United Nations conference on sustainable development.Not among the thousands of activists who decried the three-day summit that ended late Friday as dead on arrival. Not even in the top U.N. official who organized the international organization's largest-ever event.\This is an outcome that makes nobody happy. My job was to make everyone equally unhappy
