THE United Left and the Green Party have denounced the Balearic Government for allowing an increase of 58 percent in emissions of carbon dioxide from 1990 to 2004. Yesterday the United Left and the Green Party said that the emissions of greenhouse gases in the Balearic islands had risen by some 58 percent between 1990 and 2004, 16 percent more than the Spanish average. This means that the Balearics have the most emissions of greenhouse gases in Spain. This was what the coordinator of the Green Party said yesterday. He emphasised that this rise was some 50 percent more than the level established by the Kyoto agreement. He criticised the inactivity of the Balearic Government for this situation which could damage the islands in the long run, as experts have predicted drier and hotter summers in the Mediterranean with extreme climatic conditions. He said that the Office of Climatic Change, created a few months ago, hadn't done anything so far.
