More nations bail out from commitments to reducing the generation of CO2 (plant food). Is this an outbreak of commonsense or just opportunism in the face of economic adversity? Who is still on board apart from Australia, Spain, Portugal…?
Even in the heart of political correctness there is a change of direction.
The wrangle over the EU’s controversial climate package at a separate summit in Brussels wrong-footed the world’s green bureaucracy. The EU climate deal was diluted beyond recognition. Instead of standing by plans to cut CO2 emissions by 20% below 1990 levels by 2020, the actual reductions might be as trivial as 4% if all exemptions are factored in.
The Brussels summit symbolizes a turning point.
