Reason’s Ronald Bailey thinks so. If he’s right (let’s hope), good riddance.
And this point is worth noting for all those who like to stress America’s supposed isolation on this issue:
“The conventional wisdom that it’s the United States against the rest of the world in climate change diplomacy has been turned on its head. Instead it turns out that it is the Europeans who are isolated. China, India, and most of the rest of the developing countries have joined forces with the United States to completely reject the idea of future binding GHG emission limits. At the conference here, Italy shocked its fellow European Union members when it called for an end to the Kyoto Protocol in 2012.”
Kyoto was junk science and malign politics.
We should dance on its grave.
