LOL. Climate change is happening but if it's entire cause is man made is still a bit of a moot point. The earth has actually been hotter and colder at different periods of history. People are might be speeding up the process but who knows. The interesting thing is that global warming is not bad for everyone. Some regions will be able to produce more food and a greater variaty of food.

I think that if you want to slow global warming/ climate change then the best way to do it is not through taxing industry and individuals but rather offering tax benifits to business and incentives to become more efficient and reduce greenhouse gas emmisions. For example the government here put 5c per litre on petrol to buy carbon credits to meet the Koyoto obligations. How does that help the world? I still use the same amount of petrol it's a flawed idea. If the governemt offered a tax benifit for car s that used less fuel or were cleaner burning then people might change what they buy as transport in the first place.

I hope the world's pesky active volcanoes are aware of this emissions concern. Kyoto concerns itself with more the Earths increasingly bad breath than its occasional fart though.
