Breaking: Japan refuses to extend Kyoto treaty at Cancun

Breaking: Japan refuses to extend Kyoto treaty at Cancun“. Japan, one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases refuses to cut their emissions. Why should they when their trading partner the USA is entering years of Republican obstruction? Make money now, let future generations look after themselves!

Anthony Watts is right that this important, but not for the partisan reasons he is focused on.

  1. Have you read the paper that corrects the teams work on the antartic peninsula?
    Why not chat about that Benny, over 80 pages of chewing the fat with the Team , yet it still gets published.
    What you got to say about that Benny?

  2. “Japan has said in the past that it would not reject a new legally binding overall agreement, but is concerned that it would be penalized if it signed up to cuts while other countries such as India and China ((and US?)) were not legally bound to make similar cuts.”
    From the same Guardian article.

    “But this is by no means the death knoll of the Kyoto Protocol. Japan has made it clear that they are prepared to make future emission cuts. But not within the current form of this agreement.”
    From Hot Topic’s man in Cancun

  3. Let’s see there Ben…

    “Anthony Watts is right that this important, but not for the partisan reasons he is focused on.”

    But, just before that we get…

    “Why should they when their trading partner the USA is entering years of Republican obstruction?”

    Help me out Ben, which is more partisan? I really don’t care, but it kinda seems hypocritical to call Watts out for being “partisan” right after slamming Pubs because you don’t like them.

    You need a better hobby Ben. Chasing Watts and looking in the mirror are failing you. Maybe you should run more. I know I should.

    [You’re playing word games. The Republicans have pretty much stated their intention of spending the next two years obstructing the President. Not sure why you bring up running. Have you taken up Anthony’s passive-aggressive hobby of Google-stalking people you don’t like? How devoted! – Ben]

  4. No Ben, no stalking. But when you plaster your face on every blog you go to, and that pic is the one on this page, it tends to make people curious. You seem fond of yourself. I just wondered why.

    Neither passive nor aggressive, so you need not be worried. Just find the whole thing amusing.

    As for devoted, c’mon, you have a freaking blog based on your obsession of the guy. That is devotion.

    Thanks for the response!

    [So you think an anonymous generic icon would be more “humble”? I bet you’d be accusing me of cowardice if I hid behind a pseudonym. Anthony Watts is the strutting class clown of the climate debate, there’s nothing more I’d like than to filter him out. But as Homeland Security is fond of telling Americans these days, “if you see something, say something.”

    Laugh all you want, but stop for a minute and think about why you’re laughing. – Ben]
