The international agreement on global warming will gain legal force on Wednesday but it is generally believed that Canada has no immediate hope of meeting its targets for greenhouse gas emissions.We don't have any immediate hope? Please.
Here is what I'll do. I'll make a $50 dollar bet with anyone who thinks Canada's gas emissions will ever be below our 1992 levels for any year in the next 20 years. That is basically what our Kyoto commitment is. Of course 'global calamity' scenarios outside of global warming don't apply. Nuclear war. Plague. The usual caviats.
Maximum of ten bets. Payable on February 15, 2005. Bad karma will haunt those people who place a bet in bad faith.
