Neocolonialism and Fraud
by Larry Lohmann - The Corner House
For much of the left, John Howard's failure to implement the Kyoto protocols is one of his greatest crimes. And while Howard's failure to act on this displays his utter comtempt for the environment, it means that progressives have been cornered into hailing Kyoto as essential in humanity's struggle to cope and manage climate change.
However Kyoto is in fact a big-business con job. Labor Tribune is carrying this article from the Cornerhouse as it strips away the myths inherent in the the Kyoto protocol, exposing it as a market-based swindle that enormously benefits existing polluters, while locking the developing world out of the benefits of industrial development.
