    Lovely exposition! As I understand it:
    — At the original Kyoto agreement Australia demanded the right to hugely increase GHG emissions. (At the same time other developed nations were pledging reductions.)
    — Then we-didn’t-increase-as-much-as-we-said-we-might became counted as a *reduction*.
    — Australia has been living off these Kyoto credits ever since.

    What I don’t understand (and is outside the realm of this video) is how huge coal and gas exports incentivized not having Kyoto obligations. I thought that according to Kyoto accounting, coal that Australia exports ends up on the books of the other countries that burn it.

      By the way, Scotty, Johnny, and Tony were the Prime Ministers now, at the time of the time of Kyoto in 1997, and the COP in 2015.
