Clouds Over Global Warming
by by C.E. KarunakaranTamilnadu Science Forum
October 24th, 2002
"I'm not going to let the United States carry the burden for cleaning up the world's air," declared the US presidential candidate George W. Bush, in October 2000. "Only for poisoning it the most," he might have added, had he wanted to be completely truthful; as truthful as, say, Andrew Kerr of the World Wildlife Fund: "The United States is responsible for almost half of the increase in world carbon dioxide in the past decade. That increase is greater than the increase in China, India, Africa and the whole of Latin America." This minor fact would not, of course, deter President Bush from complaining that the Kyoto Protocol, the global compact on dealing with global warming "... exempts 80% of the world, including major population centres such as China and India," as he pulled his country out of the Kyoto process, within a few months of taking office.
