This is no way to role model:
The worldwide push to curb global warming has suffered a major blow with new figures showed European Union emissions in the 15 oldest member states increased by 1.3 per cent between 2002 and 2003.

The figures also show the EU is way off track in meeting its Kyoto Protocol target of cutting emissions by 8 per cent by 2012.

A spokesman for Friends of the Earth called the new figures "shocking".

"Time is running out. Unless urgent action is taken on climate change, the impacts will ruin countless lives and could wipe out a million species of wildlife."
I'm guessing he pulled that one million number out of his arse.

Update: Those arriving via Tim Blair – thanks again, Tim – might like to have a look at Europe's socialist future.
