China is freaked out at Bali conference

Environmentalists are apparently "pleased" by China's sudden show of support for the Kyoto Protocol, after the Chineese delegation "blasted" Canada for our position that everyone has to be involved in any post-Kyoto agreements.

The quote from the Globe & Mail says, "China, in unusually harsh language, warned that Japan's proposal could “sabotage” the entire Kyoto process." Amm, DUH! Hello?!?! Of course they're going to be seen throwing their weight behind Kyoto at a time like this... that's because they're completely freaked out by the notion of any new regieme that would also require them to reduce their emissions. Why can't the environmental lobby see this? Why are they so supportive of China's right to continue to increase their GHG output?

Could it be because they also know full well that Kyoto is not really about reducing GHG, but about wealth re-distrubtion and moving industry from the West to the Third World? (not that that's entirely a bad thing, mind you...)

Why does the environmental lobby continually seek to protect two of the worst GHG offenders in the world, China and India? I've NEVER been given a good answer to that question.

This new position being staked out by Canada and Japan is a severe threat to China... so naturally, they're putting on a real good show of support for Kyoto now... ONLY because it's in their best interests, allowing them to continue with their ways.

    You've hit the nail right on the head.
