Global Warming paper

Asked what status Stephen Byers’ paper on global warming had, the PMOS replied that what was important was that there was a debate going on, and we welcomed the report as a contribution towards the debate. It would be discussed with our G8 partners and others. The important thing was that by using events, such as the Science Seminar in February, we develop a world-wide consensus as to the status of the problem, the likely solutions and the way to implement them.

  1. We already have a "consensus as to the status of the problem, the likely solutions and the way to implement them." Its called the Kyoto treaty.

    The only problem seems to be that the largest abuser of the planet, the US, won’t sign up to it. As their actions are ruining the planet for the rest of us isn’t it time that we started imposing a climate levy on all US produced goods?
