These are not wealthy industrialised nations yet they are making commitments. I am angered that Harper withdrew Canada from the Kyoto Accords saying he had a better plan . . . a plan that we have yet to see. He is more interested in tar sands toxic sludge! And the US . . . with so many climate change deniers in Congress (especially on one side of the aisle), improving emmissions by cutting down on fossil fuel use and promoting alternate green energy just isn't going to happen.
