So if Britain has an annual uptick in carbon despite long term progress (presumably because of trends not government policy), there is a round of self-flagellation. If the western countries think about substituting bio-fuels for petroleum, there is condemnation (from Fidel Castro, what else is he going to say, the US is pursuing the right policy?), and if Al Gore meets with a football (soccer) coach to propound his messianic (Cassandric) propaganda campaign, there are cheers. But if BMW builds a car factory in India, a country 20 times the size of England which is growing quickly and will eventually consume more cars, produce more pollution, and be stuck in traffic far longer, nary a peep on the environmental consequences is mentioned.
