Canada Withdraws From Kyoto Protocol

    They would have owed $14B if they hadn't withdrawn.

    Anybody still think we should have agreed to this nonsense.

    Burn baby burn. The wingnuts score one for carbon monoxide.

    Good for them. If you'll recall, the U.S. Senate rejected the initial Kyoto Protocol by a 98-0 vote, so if you want to say all 98 of them were wingnuts then be my guest.

    Sounds like reasonableness defeated the wingnuts.

    No. Fuck no. They should be paying us to reduce CO2 emissions, not the other way around.

    We're boned regarding global warming anyway, so why go broke at the same time?

    LMAO! Leftwing extremism loses another one. In Canada of all places!

    You probably should spend about six months learning about both climate change and economics.

    Kyoto is an absolute joke without us and China. Canada withdrawing doesn't mean that carbon emissions should not be limited. It means that there is a global collective action problem. There is no way in hell that Canada, or any nation, that has a carbon-based economy should fall on its own sword for this cause, when nothing they do makes a difference without us and China being involved.

    And your point is?

    The fact the U.S. and China aren't part of it insults liberal wackos who think the earth is melting.

    First of all, the earth is melting. Figuratively speaking. And we are causing it.

    Second of all, the fact that the U.S. and China aren't part of it has nothing to do with "liberal wackos." Or the reliability of the science. It has everything to do with the fact that we have the most to lose, economically, from following the protocols. And the least to lose from not following them, as we are a wealthy nation that can absorb the effects to a much greater degree than the rest of the world. Like I said, we can sign us when they compensate us. Not before.
