In a good news/bad news story, the International Energy Agency is reporting that carbon emissions are waaaay down this year. That's the good news. The bad news is, the reduction is due to the global economic downturn.

Carbon emissions fall with global downturn: report - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090921/sc_afp/financeeconomyenvironmentclimatewarmingiea - broken link)
LONDON (AFP) – Greenhouse gas emissions have fallen thanks to the global downturn, handing the world a chance to move away from high-carbon growth, a report said Monday, citing an International Energy Agency study.

The unpublished IEA study found carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels had dropped significantly this year -- further than in any year in the past four decades.

Falling industrial output is largely responsible for the plunge in emissions, but other factors also played a role, including shelving plans for new coal-fired power stations because of falling demand and lack of financing.

Now the libs will start blaming oxygen as a source of "global warming" and will start suffocating themselves.
