    Good morning fellow deniers. I bring you great news.

    AGW heads must be exploding across the planet. First Prime Minister David Cameron refuses to attend the Cancun summit and now this.

    :lol:


    Cancún climate change summit: Japan refuses to extend Kyoto protocol

    Talks threatened with breakdown after forthright Japanese refusal to extend Kyoto emissions commitments


    The delicately balanced global climate talks in Cancún suffered a serious setback last night when Japan categorically stated its opposition to extending the Kyoto protocol – the binding international treaty that commits most of the world's richest countries to making emission cuts.

    The Kyoto protocol was adopted in Japan in 1992 by 16 major emitting countries, who committed themselves to cut emissions by an average 5% on 1990 figures by 2012.

    Yeah and China (and America) are not going to stop burning coal, either.

    And so the global tragedy of the commons continues.
