Under Kyoto and the current negotiations, China, India and the Asian countries are exempt from emissions controls. Does it make any sense to have a greenhouse gas treaty when the biggest green house gas polluter (i.e., China, which surpass the US in 2008) is exempt? Seems like a moron could answer that questions correctly. Seems like European anger would be more appropriately directed at China and India. Or even Australia which, despite the fact that they are one of the biggest per capita greenhouse gas polluters, negotiated themselves a cozy 8% increase in their emissions allowance in the Kyoto protocol.
When Italy scored it was one of the happiest moments of my life. I'm an Italy fan but an even bigger Germany anti-fan. I'm in Thailand at the moment (many ex-pats here) and the desire for Germany to LOSE was pretty much universal, except among Germans. Among my Italian friends, the Speigel article was specifically mentioned as a cause of special satisfaction at the games outcome.
