Happy Kyoto Day!

The Kyoto Protocol came into force today.


Let me try to capture the tenor of the news in Canada:

NHL cancels season!  The end is nigh!

Oh, and, significant global climate change treaty comes into force

On CBC's The National, anchor Peter Mansbridge announced -- and I credit him for at least grimacing while doing so -- that news of the NHL announcement was bumping special coverage of the Kyoto Protocol to the next night.

You noticed that too (re: newscast remark)?? Rob and I both remarked on it - he was in stitches, but I was just appalled!
