The fall of the Kyoto Accord, continued

Here's one more sign of the end of the Kyoto era. No country that signed the Accord a decade-plus ago has met its carbon dioxide emissions targets.

The conventional wisdom was that Britain had come closest and showed that significant reductions in CO2 emissions were possible. But the conventional wisdom is wrong.

The respected Stockholm Environment Institute, in York, has done its own CO2 emissions audit and found that Britain's emissions have been rising along with everyone else's, at a similar pace. The official figures demonstrate how open the entire issue is to manipulation.
