07 Jan 2004 “Everybody Knows” Disappearing Snow is America’s Fault
Interesting stats from the Guardian via the Daily Ablution blog regarding the number of nations in Europe that are meeting their mandated emissions-reductions targets under the Kyoto global warming treaty.
Two, Britain and Sweden, are meeting the target, so far. Thirteen others are not.
Remember this the next time you read or see a European who isn’t Swedish or British complain that the U.S. hasn’t adopted the Kyoto treaty. Anybody can sign a treaty and break it.
Have to feel sorry for the Swedes and the British, though. They are hurting their economies for nothing. Even if the global warming theory were to turn out to be real, Kyoto wouldn’t so enough even if the treaty signers kept their word — and they clearly aren’t.
