Well, guess what? When we decided against signing that stupid thing, it seems that we knew what we were talking about. You see, the Kyoto Treaty deliberately excluded the ChiComms. And, almost on cue, we see that (from The Guardian, via Conservative Grapevine):
China has overtaken the United States as the world's biggest producer of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, figures released today show.So, I wonder how Al Gore and all the liberals who have jumped on board the Whacky, Whacky, Warmin' Globe! Tour are going to handle this. Will Sheryl "Brownfinger" Crow be demanding that people in China stop using toilet paper? Will Al "We need to get serial about ManBearPig" Gore start jumping around China on a jet, spewing even more pollution into the air, in addition to what his jet will put out? Will Laurie David get in the face of the Chinese premier, like she did to the REAL mastermind behind "global warming", Karl Rove?
The surprising announcement will increase anxiety about China's growing role in driving man-made global warming and will pile pressure onto world politicians to agree a new global agreement on climate change that includes the booming Chinese economy. China's emissions had not been expected to overtake those from the US, formerly the world's biggest polluter, for several years, although some reports predicted it could happen as early as next year.
Or maybe, just maybe, people in this country will wake up to the fact that this whole "man-made global warming" thing is all just a hoax to try and wrest control of your life, and put every decision you make as a private citizen into the hands of the government. Kinda like they do in...China.
