Kyoto, A Perspective: Part 2

The Kyoto Protocol asked for nations to cut greenhouse gas emissions to 5% less than they were in 1990. Pretty easy, right? So why did 175 countries ratify the protocol but not the United States?

Kyoto, A Perspective: Part I

I recently had the privilege of “meeting” a fellow global warming skeptic known as “Tony from Oz”. Tony is a regular contributor over at the PA Pundits blog and his specialty certainly seems to be the Kyoto Protocol, a set of legislative guidelines drawn up by the United Nations in an effort to reduce worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
