Questions

If you can answer them, I'd be grateful:

Why are India and China exempt from the framework of the Kyoto protocol?

Why do Americans find so much joy making fun of foreign accents and pronunciation?

Why is smoking allowed while DDT is banned?

How can people be pro-life yet condone the death penalty?


I guess that's good for now.. I am trying to find the answer to the first question.

If I recall correctly, the reason for those (and many other) countries being exempt is, put -too- simply, they are developing countries and presumably cannot afford the disadvantage of measures taken at Kyoto would put their meager (ha!) industries in. Also, (once again, presumably) they do not pollute as much as the grand old USA. I have no idea about the validity of that presumption.

Everybody enjoys making fun of foreign accents. We Turks constantly tease other so-called "Turkic" tongues, especially those funny Azeri Turks.

Inhaling nicotine is fun, the same cannot be said for DDT by any reasonable human being.

Most people are hypocrites. Right-wingers invariably are.
