Kyoto deal loses four big nations

Just saw this at Anthony Watts. “Russia, Japan and Canada told the G8 they would not join a second round of carbon cuts under the Kyoto Protocol at United Nations talks this year and the US reiterated it would remain outside the treaty, European diplomats have said. From our SMH no less. How will this help our GreenLabor Govt in its efforts to introduce a Carbon Tax ?

  1. Dave soon there’ll just be us and NZ and the rapidly becoming poverty stricken balance of the EU
    Are we crazy or do we just have an inflated sense of our own importance in the scheme of things

    Or does the Govt just need money

    I need an election

  2. Oh I see ! It is rather like going to a Tupperware Party.
    Spending up large to impress & keep in with the crowd…until later when the cold light of reality sets in, wondering what on earth you have done and worse yet – how are you ever going to pay for it ? I would think that the Pike River Mining Disaster plus the Christchurch Major Earthquakes and the ongoing general recession should be more than enough for us on this side of the ditch to opt out. A ludicrous situation !

  3. In answer to your question, Warwick, No, it won’t help the Government.
    The whole thing will be seen as unrealistic, not to say, stupid by 60-70% of the population. But that won’t stop Julia trying anyway, because it was never about reality, just the need to keep the “green and gullible” coalition going until the polls improved.
    I think there’s a leadership change coming.

    But, Colleen, it is not quite like a Tupperware party. Overpriced Tupperware may be, but at least the basic product is sound and useful. With this lot in power only the first adjective applies. Unless you think “ding a ling” is a sound.
