US reduces emissions without Kyoto

From a speech yesterday by Kurt Volker, US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs in Berlin, Germany

Now, I know there is a deeply held view among many in Europe that the U.S. Government doesn't get it. That we don't care about climate change, that we are doing nothing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and that Europe, while perhaps not perfect, is doing a far better job of tackling the issue than the United States. This proposition--no matter how simple, no matter how widely held, and no matter how much it fits a pop-culture "blame-the-United States" paradigm--is completely wrong, on every point.
