Annex B countries are those listed in the Kyoto Protocol as having to reduce their CO2 emissions. Non-Annexe B countries (such as India and China) do not have to reduce their emissions.
Well blow me down with a feather. The countries that have no emissions reduction target are doing more damage to the environment than the rest of us. Oh! The humanity!
China has made it past the US (as it did at the Olympics) and India has almost claimed 3rd place from Russia. Putin won't be happy about that.
No wonder Australia's so-called Climate Guru, Ross Garnaut, has been flip-flopping like an Obamafish on the matter of reductions in Australia that are not mirrored in the rest of the world.
And how's that global temperature anomaly been going lately?
Hmmm, CO2 has been rising and the temperature has done nothing.
The reason is that CO2 is not the primary driver of climate but, shhhhhh, don't tell the Climate Faithful. They're a bit sensitive to pesky little things like facts.
