Summary: Kyoto Protocol

On December 11, 1997 a conference was held in the City of Kyoto to discuss the ways to reduce the emmissions of greenhouse gases that cause climate changes in the world. Those countries that have agreed to participate in the effort to reduce gases have rules and regulations on the emmssions one country could emit, some countries more than others. SOme countries earn "carbon dollars" and could share with another country in return for something valuable. In my opinion, the Kyoto protocol is a step in the right direction to help clean up our air and stop global warming. Even the U.S haas not become part of the protocol, we are the primary consumers consuming 25% of the world's natural resources but only having 5% of the world's population. We as inhabitants must make a sacrifcice in order to achieve a desired outcome.
