The article reports on a statement by Canada's government under Prime Minister Stephen Harper that the country will be unable to meet its greenhouse emission targets under the Kyoto protocol. Ratified in 2002, Kyoto is committing Canada to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions by 6% below 1990 levels by 2012. Harper is blaming the Liberals, charging that for the past ten years they wasted billions of dollars on ineffective environmental programmes, yet failed to implement any credible plan to cut emissions.
