What is the Kyoto Protocol?

What is the Kyoto Accord and why doesn’t the US join?

Basically it is an amendment to the international treaty on climate change, which attempts to set limits on the amount of of greenhouse gases that signing nations should contribute to the atmosphere.

The US hasn’t signed because our leaders think that it will give developing countries a free ride to pollute while our pollution is stifled.

I have to admit here that I just watched “An Inconvenient Truth”.  I’m amazed that this issue of global warming and greenhouse emissions is being politicized as a Socialist or a Liberal plot to destroy the US.  This has less to do with the US than it has to do with being conservative with our resources.

They say that by agreeing to Kyoto we will lose our advantage in the world market.  I say that if we don’t start making some sacrifices there won’t be a world market to participate in.

Here are a set of links to different sites that have explanations of what it is and why it is important.
