Australia isolated carryover credits cancelled by developed nations from Kyoto

Note – early Christmas media gap has COALition “emptying its garbage” on climate change claiming, over and over, that targets are already met, not revealing deceitful accounting:

Five nations announce they will not use emission reduction credits they are entitled to, and on which Australia relies to meet its 2020 targets

Australia, in stark contrast, is banking 128m tonnes of carryover from overshooting its lenient target in the first Kyoto commitment period and using it to be able to claim – as the prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, did in his speech to the Paris summit – that it is already on track to meet its second pledge…“By cancelling surplus units we hope to send a strong positive signal of support for an ambitious global climate agreement here in Paris,” the European nations said in a joint statement.
