Global Warming Honesty

Like many Canadians, I am prepared to give up some things for national objectives. What I want to know however, is what complying with Kyoto will do for the country.

The pro-Kyoto forces haven't been very clear. If Canada meets Kyoto, how much exactly will that limit global warming? 1 degree? 1 hundredth of a degree? This is something we deserve to know.

Otherwise, it's very hard to be a choose Kyoto over the economy. Should the government put a special carbon tax on airplane gasoline for example, I know the price I'll be paying. But I won't know what that does.

All I'm asking for is a little more honesty from the pro-Kyoto side. What will complying with Kyoto get us--especially if China and India don't do anything?
