Canada pulls out of the Kyoto Protocol, Favor a Healthy Economy and Jobs Instead of Bad Science

Posted by PITHOCRATES - December 17th, 2011

Week in Review

How about that?  George W. Bush is still be blamed for ruining the world (see Canada first nation to pull out of Kyoto protocol by David Ljunggren posted 12/13/2011 on Reuters).

Canada’s widely criticized withdrawal from the Kyoto protocol ends a decade-long saga that began in earnest when former President George W. Bush walked away from the global climate change treaty in 2001…

Canada is the largest supplier of oil and gas to the United States and sends 75 percent of its exports south each month…

In 2002, Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers said ratifying Kyoto would cut gross domestic product by up to 2.5 percent by 2010.

George Bush hasn’t been president since 2008.  President Obama has been in office for three years now.  Surely if a president had the power to commit their nation to the Kyoto protocol it would have been Obama.  But he didn’t.  Why?  I can only guess that the American people didn’t want it.  Because it was based on bad science.  And was a job killer.

“In my judgment the person who really torpedoed this whole enterprise was George Bush. Had the Americans participated … by now there would be enormous pressure on the Chinese and the Indians to be accepting targets,” he said.

Yeah, like anyone can make the Chinese do what they want.  Everyone is bitching about the Chinese manipulating their currency to give them an unfair advantage in international trade.  And how has that enormous pressure worked so far on the Chinese?  Suffice it to say that their currency still gives them unfair advantage in international trade.

Canada may be green but they’re no fools.  They have an export energy economy.  And the last thing they need is some BS environmental restraints on that bustling economy during trying economic times.  Especially with the theory of man-made global warming having been further debunked by Climategate 2.  The second batch of leaked emails from the University of East Anglia exposing man-made global warming for the fraud that it is.

George W. Bush didn’t put the kibosh on the Kyoto protocol.  The bad science of global warming did.
