According to the CBC, the United States, China, India, Australia, South Korea, and Japan are not part of the real world.
A CBC-picked commentator criticized Stephen Harper for flirting with joining the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (AP6).
She said the AP6 would distract from the "real work" of climate change being done -- Kyoto, and the UN.
The Kyoto accord specifically exempted two of the world's top polluters -- China and India.
The AP6 includes them.
It consists of Australia, China, India, Japan, Republic of Korea and the United States.

And you will see a very creative map of the world that shows boxes representing populations.
Now take a look at some of the "big boxes" --China, India, and the United States.
Apparently not sufficient to be considered the real world.
According to the CBC.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
