Re: Behringer, Slight Return

Bullocks.  China's insistence upon the use of coal as a MAJOR source of
energy guarantees that the 17% figure is a complete lie.  Since when has
China adhered to a single treaty they've ever signed anyway?  Kyoto 
is a smokescreen for diplomatic egg-throwing at the US in more than just a
few circles, and not just the reactionary right either.
