I originally posted Part One of this two part article about a year ago. I'm reposting it now because recent events, the extraordinary rapid melting of the Greenland ice sheet and the report on excessive CO2 emissions circulating in Europe, have once again made it relevant.

Lousy article. "New numbers"? Where?

And why harp on about gas fracking without mentioning that it has made the US the world leader in carbon emissions reduction?

Answer:

Russia's emissions dropped rapidly in the early 90s due to an economic collapse with the fall of the USSR.
France's emissions dropped in the 70s-80s as it switched to nuclear power after the Arab oil embargo.
Britain's emissions dropped in the 80s-90s as it switched from coal to gas for economic reasons and because of the miners' strikes as well as to cut smog.
No countries have managed to cut emissions as a result of a deliberate policy to combat climate change.

There is also a strong argument that Western countries where emissions have fallen or grown slowly (especially Britain and the US) have really been exporting their emissions with their manufacturing industries to developing countries like China, where emissions have been rising fast.
