During the Presidency of George W. Bush who has the better record regarding carbon dioxide emissions? The US who has not ratified the Kyoto Treaty or the European Union countries who have signed the Kyoto Treaty?

■ “Output of all greenhouse gases was down 1.5% last year. All this while the American economy grew by 2.9%.”
■ “from 2000 to 2005, the U.S. outperformed Western Europe. Carbon emissions were up 3.8% in the so-called EU-15 during those years, versus 2.5% in the U.S.”
