ABSTRACT
The gloomy view from the international climate change negotiations, held in Milan in December 2003, was that Kyoto protocol was dying a death of a thousand cuts. The trouble with Kyoto protocol, which commits countries to limiting their greenhouse gas emissions, is partly the U.S. is responsible for more than 20 percent of global greenhouse gas emission and partly Russians' delay in ratifying it. Ministers say Great Britain's track record in reducing domestic emissions and its commitment to cut emissions by 60 percent by 2050 are important.
