Today marks the end of the first week of the landmark climate talks that have been taking place in Copenhagen [1], and there’s already been so much news surrounding the conference on the interwebs that we thought you could use a quick refresher! While most of the major news networks have been broadcasting the main points that we’ve already gone over with you [2], there are also a bunch of titillating side stories and developments that we thought would pique your interest. For example, did you hear that “COP15″ hit the web’s #1 most googled term [3] the other day? Here are some more lesser known tidbits about Copenhagen that you can use to impress your friends over Friday night drinks tonight.

Treehugger [4] says that Gordon Brown believes that if you still think climate change is a crock [5], you can join the group of people who believed the world was flat. And for those of us that do believe, help create a Twitter book [6] for Copenhagen.

Guardian [7] reminds us that nothing important in this world can happen without it becoming a video on YouTube [8].

If you really want to make a personal change to help the planet, you should eat less meat and dairy [9] — and submit a question to be asked at COP15 here [10]. You have until December 14th!

Forbes [11] reports that China has turned hostile on “The West.” [12] (China also says that climate change can be fought with population control [13])

Grist [14] produces the first of quirky videos featuring Eugene Mirman as he reports on all the Copenhagen happenings [15].

Worldchanging [16] reminds us that those who walk, save the planet [17].
