3. It is interesting that when the US was trying to pass a climate change bill there was concern

that other countries would not agree to lower their carbon footprint and that doing that would give them a competitive advantage. The solution was that there would have to be the option of increasing tariffs to wipe out any financial gain by countries floating a world wide climate effort.

John Kerry is entirely correct -- and likely very sad that it is the US that is that country.
