The United Nations seems perplexed that its fight against global warming isn’t going well these days.
Canada, under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has been explicit in breaking with the UN in its decision to pull out of the Kyoto accord.
But the U.S. never even ratified Kyoto, which expires at the end of this year, Russia and Japan aren’t enthusiastic about possible successor agreements and China and India don’t want to participate unless they don’t have to do anything............http://www.torontosun.com/2012/06/29/un ... green-mojo
As for the rest of the world, concerns over global recession have pushed worries about global warming to, you should pardon the expression, the back burner.
