Who's polluting who?

Grammatical correctness may be absent from the headline there, but check this out from the Red Star:
U.S. better at fighting pollution, group says

OTTAWA — Environmentalists say the United States has done a better job limiting air pollution than Canada.
That despite a decade of Canadian government hype about taking the issue seriously.
The group Pollution Watch says the United States reduced its air pollution emissions by 45 per cent between 1995 and 2003 while Canada reduced its air pollution by 1.8 per cent.
It says Canadian government rhetoric on how industry and government are making the problem go away masks what it calls hollow promises.
Pollution Watch says increased air pollution has added to breathing and other health problems.
It also says the data shows just how inefficient Canadian industry has remained while U.S. competitors have adapted.

Let's see. From 1995 to 2003... the evil Republicans controlled Congress while Slick Willie was President from 1995 to 2001. From then on, it was evil George and the evil Republicans.
From 1995 to 2003 the Liberals controlled Canada.
Who's zoomin' who?
