So the US is getting all huffy about Paul Martin's grandstanding. TorStar Link, but I find it amusing that the US would trumpet a reduction in emissions that they've had as something to be proud of. Did it come as a result of any concerted effort to clean up factories or impose more stringent emissions regulations on cars? Nope. It's from the full-fledged fleeing of the U.S.'s manufacturing base to China. So all of the factories that used to belch out their poisons directly into American lungs now do so on the other side of the earth, employing Chinese instead of Americans.
So the U.S. gets to take credit for helping the environment because no one wants to manufacture anything inside the U.S. anymore. Good job, guys.
