I feel sorry for you who have to pay for this bs via increased taxes
What can I say, it was the obvious next step.
The Kyoto protocol was merely a thinly disguised extortion plot. It demanded that developed nations pay third world pestholes what amounted to protection money. Third world backwaters probably pollute more than either the US or Cananda, but they don't produce greenhouse gasses because they lack the sources of those gasses. Instead they produce pollutants in the form of ash from slash and burn agriculture, they ruin what little topsoil they have through poor farming methods, they fail to treat human excrement properly, if at all, they pollute the ground with mercury in the open-pit hellholes they call gold mines. But they don't produce many greenhouse gasses - whooopeee-dooooo!
The fact that the US rejected this crap is one of the very, very few foreign policy decisions our government has made with which I can agree. I'm all for reducing pollutant levels, but I see no reason to pay the likes of Zimbabwe, Nigeria, or Ecuador for the "privelige" of exceeding some arbitrary standard.
Maybe one day you Canadians might also tell the UN to screw off. That is, assuming you can ever get control of your government again.
It's not only that, Environment Canada is coming down really hard on local mills with regard to disposal of saw dust and wood chips/shavings. I guess rotting methane producing woodchips/shavings is the real problem environmentally.
you sure it's not moose farts ?
After prolonged exposure, moose farts can cause migranes and typos. :tng:
