Why Kyoto will never succeed, by Blair (Patrick Hennessy and James Langton, 25/09/2005, Daily Telegraph)
Tony Blair has admitted that the fight to prevent global warming by ordering countries to cut greenhouse gases will never be won.
The Prime Minister said “no country is going to cut its growth or consumption” despite environmental fears.
Mr Blair’s comments, which he said were “brutally honest”, mark a big environmental U-turn and will dismay Labour activists. […]
His remarks, unreported at the time but now published in a transcript of the conference, are certain to spark wide-ranging criticism that he is again signing up to the agenda of President George W Bush. Under Mr Bush, the US has consistently refused to sign the Kyoto Treaty.
Wonder if he used the same shiv with which he dispatched the EU?
