View Full Version : An "I Told You So" Moment
"Canada has no chance of meeting its commitments to cut emissions of greenhouse gases laid down by the Kyoto climate change protocol, the minority Conservative government said in a policy speech on Tuesday."
But fear not! Liberalism allows you to do nothing, yet feel GREAT about it!
In that sense, Kyoto is a smashing success in Canada. It's all abooooot the emotions, eh?
Carbon Dioxide Emissions of the three biggest polluters: (BBC Display of this information)
Population of the world 4.6%,
World Economy 30%,
CO2 Emissions 24%
That is higher than any other country.
China and the EU, both lesser polluters than the US, have one thing in common: They are both committed to further reducing their rate of emissions. Despite economic growth China has cut emissions by 17% since the mid 1990s. The odd one out is the USA. Immensely richer than China, but with less population than Europe, it emits more harmful chemicals than both of them. In addition, it has so far stubbornly refused to endorse international protocols designed to reduce such emissions. The world looks on flabbergasted as the world's greatest polluter cares not to take care or responsibility in the face of international pressure.
