Bye-Bye, Kyoto

Forbes Asia;1/9/2006, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p32
The article considers the decision of U.S. President George W. Bush to reject the Kyoto Protocol. The purpose of the treaty is to slow down global warming. The treaty will not cover the developing countries but proposes that they will elect to come aboard the follow-on treaty, after Kyoto expires in 2012. With the Bush Administration and Australia opting out and the developing world no longer being asked to join, the European Union stands as the default supplier of signatories.
