Kyoto hypocrisy

From the State Department? Washington Times? The White House?
Although the US is portrayed as the ecological villain for refusing to sign up to the agreement, 10 out of the 15 European Union signatories - including Ireland, Italy and Spain - will miss their targets without urgent action, the Institute for Public Policy Research found.

France, Greece and Germany are given "amber warnings" and will only achieve the objectives if planned policies are successfully carried out.
None of the above. This surprising story was reported in the Independent. Here Wait! Wait, you say. Isn't that the Leftwing newspaper from the U.K.? Yes.

And those are only the European countries. You ask, how about Canada? Well, it isn't in this story, but Canada has not reduced emisions either. In fact, Canada's emissions have increased 30% since 1997. Like 13 out of 15 European countries, emissions are increasing every year in the Land of Sanctimony and Ze Boondoggle.
