Kyoto comes quietly into force…

The Kyoto Protocol came into force yesterday with only RTE it seems giving the subject any decent air time (sound file). Apparently only 4 per cent of Ireland’s energy outputs are renewable.And the WWF calls on DETI to put together a strategy to tackle its status as “the worst climate culprit in the UK with CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions 3.0% and 1.9% higher respectively in 2002, compared to 1990 levels”. Ah, if only we had politicians in a position to care and do something about such matters.
