WWF’s “G8 Climate Scorecards” show that none of the G8 countries are taking the required lead when it comes to cutting emissions, increasing the share of renewable energies or improving energy efficiency.

The scorecards use a total of ten criteria to provide a comparable snapshot of recent and expected greenhouse gas emissions in each of the G8 economies. They also show how effectively governments are reacting to the threat of climate change and provide an overall evaluation of the climate performance of each country.

Within the scorecards, the US performed worst, not having ratified the Kyoto Protocol and not having put any substantive measures in place to curb emissions. The US has the highest emission rates for greenhouse gases among G8 countries sourcing around two thirds of its energy needs from coal and oil. And under the Bush administration the world’s largest economy’s dependence on coal and oil is set to increase.

The three countries furthest along in dealing with climate change issues include France, Germany and the UK, but each is likely to see increases in emissions if further measures are not implemented soon. Canada, Italy, Japan and Russia rank much lower and are far from meeting the criteria required to keep the global rise in temperatures below 2°C by 2050.

Also investigated - but not rated - are the five major developing countries Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa. They are expecting large growth in emissions as their economies expand, although they are already implementing measures to cut emissions.
