Whats News?

In Canada, this is news worthy of every paper, TV and radio station...

Canada's CO2 output has increased by 33% from 1990 levels! or some derivative there of....

1990 being the magical year that Kyoto reductions are based upon for no apparent reason. It sounded good at the time I guess. Just like Jean Chr├ętien's magical 6% reduction number that he pulled out of his ass. Perhaps it was just a number written on a napkin that he found laying around? Who knows...

In Canada, This is NOT news worthy at all...

Just as Norwegian delegates to the UN's conference on climate change started heading home from Bali, came news that Norway's own carbon emissions rose 80 percent from 1990 to 2004.

(Emphasis mine)

To 2004... NOT 2007, but to 2004! Go figure. And yet we are constantly told by our media how well the European countries are doing in comparison to Canada. Go figure.

This could not be the same Norway that just gave out some prize for Peace to some people over at the IPCC and good ol' Al Jr. could it? Why yes.... yes it is... Is that a little egg on those faces I see, or is that egget?

Must be a lot of Tree Hugging Hippies in Norway eh?
