And David Suzuki thinks the Europeans can cut emissions....

On his recent cross-Canada tour, David Suzuki was touting the success of the Europeans in cutting CO2 emissions...well...as with most things, he is wrong...
The amount of greenhouse gas pumped into European skies rose by up to 30 million tonnes last year despite the EU’s pledge to lead the world in tackling climate change.

A much-heralded emissions trading scheme, which is being copied by California and is seen as the market solution to reducing harmful gases, failed to achieve the cuts in industrial pollution needed to hit Kyoto targets, figures from the European Commission showed.

The Europe-wide increase in CO2 came in the second year of the scheme to allocate emission permits to companies and power generators. Critics described the EU trading system as “botched central planning” because too many permits were granted, enabling polluters to buy them at knockdown prices and carry on producing the gases that cause climate change.

Why do people still listen to David Suzuki? Don't people realize that this emperor truly has no clothes?

European pledges are completely meaningless - good for one photo op only, they're just like our Liberals that way.
