Email from UNFCCC: ‘We won’t let Canada out of the Kyoto Convention responsibilities’ — (Remember how this was phrased? ‘sign it,it’s just voluntary!’)
UN to Canada: 'Whether or not Canada is a Party to the Kyoto Protocol, it has a legal obligation under the Convention to reduce its emissions'
Recall Rio 1992 'Earth Summit' where the meme was 'hey,it's voluntary!...with a negotiating schedule attached'. Apparently,like a Roach Motel, 'countries check in but they can't check out'
