On London, the Olympics, taxes a lot of things.
Also this quote which should have gone along with yesterday’s post in regards to Kyoto.
“Canada remains fully committed to its obligation to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions by six per cent of its 1990 figure by 2008.
That’s great to know, isn’t it? So how’s it going so far?
Well, by the end of 2003, Canada’s greenhouse-gas emissions were up 24.2 per cent.
Meanwhile, how are things looking in the United States? As you’ll recall, in a typically “pig-headed and blinkered” (Independent) act that could lead to the entire planet becoming “uninhabitable” (Michael Meacher), “Polluter Bush” (Daily Express), “this ignorant, short-sighted and blinkered politician” (Friends of the Earth), rejected the Kyoto treaty. Yet somehow the “Toxic Texan” (everybody) has managed to outperform Canada on almost every measure of eco-virtue.”
