You don't know what you'r talking about.
 How will this Kyoto Protocol ("KP") work when the US, China, India, some of the world's greatest and up and coming polluters, have not signed it?
 How will the KP decrease global warming when countries like Canada will not reach their targets? In actuality, Canada will continue to increase its pollution of carbon dioxide at a projected rate of 3%. The KP does not force Canada to stop polluting. Rather, we purchase fictitious "carbon credits" from Russia, which Russia is not using. What does that mean? Pollution continues to increase because Russia, et al, were never polluting above the threshold allowed under the KP. If it is cheaper to buy these carbon credits than to reduce pollution, then pollution continues. Simple as that.
Plus, Canada is not alone in not reaching its "targets". Even countries such as the UK, Japan, France and Germany are not projected to reach theirs either. Good job KP.
 The KP is the result of a few radical left wingers dictating the agenda, when they had absolutely no idea about pollution, who pollutes or how to stop it.
Lefties prefer a hard line rule to stop pollution. Will businesses go along with that? Us, China, and India said no. In Canada, we won't reach our targets. What an achievement!
Instead, ideas on the right examined how we could give businesses incentives to not pollute. If we constructed an international regime under UN auspicies which offered businesses tax credits guaranteed from their national governments at 1.5 times the value of their investment in certified pollution reducing technologies, there would be many businesses doing all they could to purchase these technologies and invest in them. Resultingly, these technologies would become more advanced and efficient. Further, business would save money by not
polluting or by reducing pollution. Businesses would have to invest in these technologies in order to compete with other businesses around the world.
