Kyoto earthquake

At $10.5 billion, Japan's Kyoto bill is equivalent to their bill for the huge July 2007 earthquake -- but with a significantly worse economic effect.

Just thought you'd like to know.

How about this as a campaign platform at the next Japanese election:

"Vote for me. Instead of taking $10.5 billion and sending it to Russia and Britain as my opponent plans to do, I will put this back into Japanese healthcare, education, and roads."

No one has answered who is paying for California's huge fires yet under the Kyoto protocol? Equivalent to 400,000 cars a year??

Matt - a better platform would be:

"Vote for me. Instead of sending $10.5 billion to Russia and Britain I will abolish the income tax and privatise health and education."

Kate - re the California fires: get Al Gore to send a bill (for the burnt carbon) to Greenpeace ~:)
