A Dialogue for the September 12th World

Uh…I’d Rather Trade Baseball Cards

Anyone noticed the latest liberal game of ‘feel-good’ moral equivocation and hypocrisy? Yah…it’s trading carbon emissions. If you can’t meet your Kyoto-Nazi quota- you work a trade. Uh-huh…find someone worse than you. Or better.

Greenhouse gas emissions are rising in more than half the countries of the EU, according to official figures yesterday that threaten to undermine its call for the rest of the world to join a new climate-change treaty.

European leaders including Tony Blair and Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, have led the call for global targets to succeed the Kyoto Protocol, but 14 of the 27 EU countries are pumping out higher annual levels of CO2, says the European Environment Agency.

Spain is the worst offender among the large countries, emitting 15.4 million tonnes more CO2 in 2005 than the previous year, a rise of 3.6 per cent.
The 15 pre2004 members of the EU agreed to cut their greenhouse gases by 8 per cent by 2012 under Kyoto, but have so far achieved a cut of 2 per cent, a rate of progress causing deep concern among campaign groups.

EU leaders are pinning their hopes on the second phase of their carbon-trading scheme, from 2008 to 2012, even though it failed to make cuts in its first two years.

All together now….awwwwwwwwwwwwww. Those self-righteous BLOWHARD Europeans can’t seem to make any progress. And now they want to start trading their problems. You sorry sack of greenhouse gases- will you take a Nolan Ryan rookie card instead?
