Should the Copenhagen talks fail?

So it seems that even James Hansen, climate scientist extraordinaire thinks that it would be better for Copenhagen to fail than for us to be lumbered with a half-baked plan, based on false solutions, half hearted cuts and attempts to keep on with business-as-usual. This is something which I have been wrestling with for some time. Part of me wants it to end in acrimony so that at least we can all the mess we are in (and not just with climate), and begin to look at the underlying problems.. another part of me simply wants progress, to feel that something good is happening… If the only proposals put forward are the feeble statements from China, India, USA, Canada, then we would be better off letting it fail, and saying why.
