Something Rotten in Denmark

by William Yeatman on October 1, 2007

I have noted previously the outrageous moralizing by (particularly, but by no means exclusively) Denmark’s Environment Minister last week, when she claimed to be an increasingly impatient emissary on behalf of “the planet”, demanding that the U.S. make the same promise as Europe to reduce its greenhouse gas (principally CO2) emissions.


That same week, I now see, Denmark released figures showing that it increased its 2006 CO2 emissions by 16.1% over 2005 levels, citing their growing economy (which relied on coal-fired power, it seems).


U.S. emissions dropped 1.3% over the same time, while the economy grew by 3.3%.
