Last year, even as the U.S. economy expanded, the United States reduced CO2 emissions by 1.3 percent.
At the same time, Britain, which signed the anti-CO2 Kyoto Protocol in 1997, increased CO2 emissions by 1.25 percent.
And the BBC, investigating the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (Wow, is that the real name? Scheme?), is reporting that “CO2 emissions across the EU [European Union] also rose by between 1 and 1.5% over the last two years.”
So being part of the Kyoto Protocol brings what benefit?
