Emissions of CO2 Continue to Rise Despite Pledges

A UN agency said most industrial nations continue to increase their emissions of carbon dioxide and other so-called greenhouse gases by 11% despite pledges under the Kyoto Protocol to cut.

Eastern Europe increased emissions 4.1%.

The U.S., which isn't a party to Kyoto, had a slower increase in emissions (1.3%) than members of the EU (2.4%).

Canada emissions rose 4.6%.

We don't need Kyoto to be efficient. Efficient energy use is a good business decision. My entire house uses those low wattage high brightness bulbs.

118 gigatons of carbon are put into the atmosphere each year, only 5 gigatons are from fossil fuels. The Kyoto agreement is a farce.

Irrelevant since the culprit is Aviation, not ground level emissions.
...besides our bio-mass thrives on CO2...I call it plant food!
