Bush again

25 11 2004

A report by 250 scientists this month warned that the Arctic is warming twice as fast as the global average, threatening to wipe out species like polar bears by 2100.

President Bush pulled out of the Kyoto protocol in 2001, saying it was too costly and wrongly excluded developing nations. Kyoto seeks to cut rich nations’ carbon dioxide emissions by five percent below 1990 levels by 2008-12.

Kyoto is meant to be a first step against global warming. U.N. projections show that Kyoto will brake rising world temperatures by only about 0.1C (0.2F), a pinprick compared to a forecast rise of 1.4-5.8C by 2100.

“The United States is like an ostrich burying its head in the sand,” said chief Gary Harrison of the Arctic Athabaskan Council, which represents thousands of people in Canada and Alaska. He urged Washington to act to stop a melt.
