Prime Minister Stephen Harper once called the Kyoto accord a "socialist scheme" designed to suck money out of rich countries, according to a letter leaked Tuesday by the Liberals....This really isn't that hard: the US signed Kyoto, remains a signatory and is making more progress towards it's goals than Canada and most of western Europe. I do understand that the fact that we're not even trying is frustrating, but it's no excuse for bad facts.
The Kyoto Protocol went into effect Feb. 16, 2005, with 141 countries signing on, including every major industrialized country, except the United States, Australia and Monaco.
