took about 100 hours :laugh:

But there is now an aggrement to revamp a climate change treaty in the United Nations, and the aggreement that this Treaty must be signed by 2020, and the aggreement that the treaty will be law abiding involving sanctions on an International level.

The United States of America refused to acknowledge any such prospect...Unless China decided to play ball. China didnt know if it was possible to do...and India stuck its fingers up at the idea.

So...the United Nations basically stuck them all on a table and let every other nation stand around the table until they aggreed.

Eventually China Caved, calling the American bluff...so America signed up. India then got skeeerd being the only nation to object.

:laugh:

So they all aggree something must be done...but WHAT...well...who knows :rolleyes:

From SlashDot.com:

Canada will become the first country to formally withdraw from the Kyoto protocol (http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/12/12/canada-formally-withdrawig-from-kyoto-protocol/) on climate change, dealing a symbolic blow to the troubled global treaty. 'Kyoto, for Canada, is in the past,' says Environment Minister Peter Kent. 'We are invoking our legal right to formally withdraw from Kyoto.' Kent, a Conservative, says the Liberals should not have signed up to a treaty they had no intention of respecting and says Ottawa backs a new global deal to cut emissions of greenhouse gases, but insists it has to cover all nations, including China and India, which are not bound by Kyoto's current targets. Kent adds that meeting Canada's obligations under Kyoto would cost $13.6 billion (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16151310): 'That's $1,600 from every Canadian family that's the Kyoto cost to Canadians, that was the legacy of an incompetent liberal government.' Kent's announcement came just hours after negotiators in Durban managed to thrash out an agreement at the very last minute an agreement to begin a new round of talks on a new agreement in the years ahead. 'Staying under 2C will require drastic, immediate action with global emissions peaking in the next five years or so,' writes Brad Plummer. 'The Durban Platform, by contrast, merely prods countries to come up with a new agreement (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/post/five-things-to-know-about-the-durban-climate-agreement/2011/12/12/gIQAfEJ3pO_blog.html) that will go into effect no later than 2020.

When the ice caps melt, I'll blame the Milankovitch Cycles. As a secondary, just for fun, I'll blame Canada and be proud to call the beaver our national animal!

Thankfully, not all Nations are as selfish as the US. :ninja:

The countries Canada is effectively saying F off to is, YOU, China and India. She has a point. Why should she sacrifice for your benefit, when you wont do the same for her.
