Rich Nations' Greenhouse Gases Up, Despite Kyoto

Industrialised nations' emissions of greenhouse gases edged up to the highest level in more than a decade in 2004 despite curbs meant to fight global warming, data compiled by Reuters showed on Thursday.

The figures, based on national submissions to the UN Climate Secretariat in Bonn, indicate many countries will have to do more to meet 2012 goals set by the UN's Kyoto Protocol for cutting emissions of gases from fossil fuels.

Emissions from 40 industrial nations climbed 1.6 percent overall to 17.8 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide -- mainly from power plants, factories and cars -- in 2004 from in 2003 even though oil prices were surging.

Yeah, but who really killed JonBenet?
