Straight talk on Kyoto | Toronto Sun
So the real story on Kyoto is this.

Yes, we failed to meet our targets. But that’s in the context of 154 of 191 nations, including China, not having to cut their emissions at all.

Add to that the U.S., which never ratified Kyoto, going back to the Bill Clinton/Al Gore administration.

Given all this, the idea Canada should have wrecked its economy while spending billions of tax dollars vainly attempting to comply with the protocol is absurd.

By constantly vilifying Canada as if it is the major impediment to a global emissions treaty, opposition MPs and environmentalists are misleading Canadians.
