20 wasted years

I must have missed it when the anniversary passed in the summer, because it just occurred to me that 2008 marks 20 years since the Toronto Conference on the Changing Atmosphere. That would be the one that declared (PDF) that "humanity is conducting an unintended, uncontrolled, globally pervasive experiment whose ultimate consequences could be second only to a global nuclear war."

The TCCA recommended a 20% cut in CO2 emissions... by 2005.

And people wonder why I'm pretty sure we're doomed.
