More Wrong Numbers


George Monbiot's on the case yet again with an excellent demolition of British and European CO2 emissions targets.

"The rich nations seeking to cut climate change have this in common: they lie. You won’t find this statement in the draft of the new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which was leaked to the Guardian last week. But as soon as you understand the numbers, the words form before your eyes. The governments making genuine efforts to tackle global warming are using figures they know to be false."

I couldn't have put it better myself.
