Great achievement of Kyoto climate agreement wasn't to reduce CO2 which actually skyrocketed under its watch, but to create a market worth tens of billions of dollars a year-UK Guardian, Jan. 2010

Jan. 25, 2010, "Don't let the carbon market die," UK Guardian, Oliver Tickell

"The great achievement of the (Kyoto) protocol was not to reduce carbon (dioxide) emissions – they actually rose at an increasing rate under its watch, three times faster in the early 2000s than during the 1990s – but to create a market in emissions rights and notional emissions reductions worth tens of billions of dollars a year."...


Oliver Tickell is an advocate of global climate governance.
