Eeee Ewwwwww

Oh those bothersome details. For all their endless meetings and moral superiority and smugness, the EU isn't doing so much for the environment.
Some industries and lobbying groups opposed to mandatory limits point out that emissions in the United States grew just 1.3 percent during that period, far less than the 2.4 percent measured in the European Union.

But environmentalists said economic growth in the United States was slow in those years, and they noted that Europe's binding restrictions took effect only this year.
In other words, while the EU talked -- endlessly -- about emissions, the U.S. was actually doing something. Bush's fault.
