The 1997 Kyoto agreement on climate change, is clearly about to totally unravel, after Canada starts the ball rolling, by kicking it into the long grass.
Although I'm not entirely confident Cameron & Co will take the same (prudent and timely) step, we will no doubt see a whole host of countries taking a similar posture due to economic climate conditions.
In 1997, the world was a different place.
Canada will save billions by this measure, in the short term - by not paying fines for defaulting on targets.
Good for them, I say.
Anybody else with a view?
