The PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain) all show up in this chart pretty clearly. And the only reason Ireland shows a bit as an outlier is that she exports all her young people to other countries.
Of course, we know that these liberals are a bunch of liars when it comes to promising to leave America if the peasants don’t elect their chosen one, but we can only hope that Susan Sarandon follows up on this one:
If McCain gets in, it’s going to be very, very dangerous,” she says.
“It’s a critical time, but I have faith in the American people. If they prove me wrong, I’ll be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I don’t know. We’re at an abyss.”
We will all rejoice if she actually leaves. And if she goes, I hope she takes her filthy idiot Tim Robbins along with her too.
World and U.S. opinion seems to revolve around who signed Kyoto rather than actual carbon dioxide emissions. Once again, stated intent trumps actual results. Can even the global warming believers possibly believe this treaty has anything to do with it?
One would think that countries that committed to the Kyoto treaty are doing a better job of curtailing carbon emissions. One would also think that the United States, the only country that does not even intend to ratify, keeps on emitting carbon dioxide at growth levels much higher than those who signed.
And one would be wrong.
Emissions worldwide increased 18.0%.
Emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21.1%.
Emissions from non-signers increased 10.0%.
Emissions from the U.S. increased 6.6%.
In fact, emissions from the U.S. grew slower than those of over 75% of the countries that signed Kyoto. Below are the growth rates of carbon dioxide emissions, from 1997 to 2004, for a few selected countries, all Kyoto signers. (Remember, the comparative number for the U.S. is 6.6%.)
The hope of the world is the dissent-tolerating, freedom-loving Europeans. Of course, you aren’t actually going to be allowed to give your own opinion unless you are a “professional journalist”, pay a tax, and be subject to prison for giving those opinions.Sure makes me feel better about Europe.
The Levi-Prodi law lays out
that anyone with a blog or a website has to register it with the ROC, a register of the Communications Authority, produce certificates, pay a tax, even if they provide information without any intention to make money.
the Levi-Prodi law obliges anyone who has a website or a blog to get a publishing company and to have a journalist who is on the register of professionals as the responsible director.
99% would close down.
The lucky 1% still surviving on the Internet according to the Levi-Prodi law would have to respond in the case of the lack of control on defamatory content in accordance with articles 57 and 57 bis of the penal code. Basically almost sure to be in prison.
