I really hope this isn't a repost,..... but here ya go:

Kyoto Promises are Nothing but Hot Air

It seems some countries couldn't keep their promises. Maybe the U.S. isn't such a bad guy after all.





Now two teams that have monitored concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere say they have convincing evidence that the figures reported by many countries are wrong, especially for methane. Among the worst offenders are the UK, which may be emitting 92 per cent more methane than it declares under the Kyoto protocol, and France, which may be emitting 47 per cent more .....................Bergamaschi's calculations suggest that the UK emitted 4.21 million tonnes of methane in 2004 compared to the 2.19 million tonnes it declared, while France emitted 4.43 million tonnes compared to the 3.01 million tonnes it declared


Of course the only reason we learn about this is because money is involved. Countries are allowed to do Carbon Trading, so not monitoring how much each country REALLY pollutes could lead to the possibility of fraud.
