DEAUVILLE, France: Russia, Japan and Canada told the G8 they would not join a second round of carbon cuts under the Kyoto Protocol at United Nations talks this year and the US reiterated it would remain outside the treaty, European diplomats have said.Good show!

As Lilley says, it's an elaborate "shell game". See this video near the 4 minute mark:
