Secret Greenhouse Gas Pact Signed by US, Others

| Wednesday July 27th, 2005 | 0 Comments

greenhouseeffect.jpgThe Australian reports that a secret pact has been signed between Australia, the US, China, South Korea, and India on Greenhouse Gas Emissions – those countries emit about 40% of the world’s share. The pact is known as the “Asia Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate”, and is billed by its promoters as different from Kyoto because it emphasizes technological solutions and does not involve caps on emissions.
Details are scarce, but critics have quickly emerged calling the pact “business as usual” and potentially undermining to the Kyoto accord. Additional information on Google News, which has curiously few US news sources reporting at the time of this writing.
