It’s the How that Counts

In a typical piece of EU stupidity, the alternative to Kyoto as suggested by the USA has been attacked.
"If it is simply technology and clean coal, it is no substitute for agreements like the Kyoto Protocol and we do not expect it to have a real impact on climate change.
That would make it more or less like Kyoto which itself will have basically no effect on climate change. The problem however is that Statists like members of the Eurocracy believe that only by banning things can a problem be solved. Using technology is cheating. Now I know very little about the US proposal and it may well be useless, but the only solution to growing CO2 emissions is new technology, full stop. How the incentives are provided to enable this to happen I do not know. What I do know is that No Pain No Gain might work in the Gym but it’s a pathetic approach to political issues.
