Let’s just get this story straight.
Ratifying Kyoto would have hurt Australia’s economy:
John Howard: I’m not going to sign up to something that puts Australian jobs at risk.
But even though we didn’t ratify the 1997 document, we’re still meeting our Kyoto targets:
John Howard: We’re one of a small number of countries that will meet the target.
Which makes you wonder how it could be that:
John Howard: We’ve had a wonderful economy over the last 10 years.
