Trouble in Canada

Dave in Texas reports in AoSHQ, that the Canadian government has "revised emission targets, claiming the ones previously agreed to are unachievable, totally unrealistic and caca poopoo."

Canada had agreed under the international Kyoto Protocol to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to 6.0 percent below 1990 levels by 2012, but emissions have instead increased by more than 35 percent.

Last year, the government outlined a new plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent, based on 2006 levels, by 2020, saying the targets agreed to by the previous administration were unattainable.

Dave then nails it shut:
I'll add Dave in Texas' .02 here: the revised target is also unachievable, totally unrealistic and caca poopoo.

The only way they can "reduce" emissions is to participate in the stupid ponzi game of trading carbon credits with other countries, because there's no way in hell they're actually gonna reduce jack shit. And if the UN overlords decide against them on registry compliance, they'll be barred from doing that.

I'm sure the current admin is really, really worried about that.

Say what you want about Billy Jeff "Bubba" Clinton, but he isn't stupid.
There were very good reasons he deep sixed the Kyoto Treaty by never sending it to the Senate for ratification after his VP Al Gore signed it.
One was the unanimous vote by the US Senate saying they were against what was clearly an economic treaty designed to punish the US and other first world countries.
Anybody who tries to tell you that the Kyoto Protocols were an "environmental" treaty is either ignorant or lying.
