The politial decisions made for the Kyouto protocol had their shortcomings.

We for the Kyouto protocol had their shortcomings.

We opted to put targets an a range of gases, knowing that we had very different degrees of certainty on the estimation of emissions for each of them.

Selecting 1990 as the base year for emissions comparisons was arbitrary, if politically convenient, as was selecting a 100-year horizon.

The taeget of a 5% emissions reduction was too modest, but it was the only one politically possible.

Despite this, the Kyouto Protocol has had an undeniably positive impact in international policy : climate change is now at the centre of the international scene, and Raul Estrada-oyuera have no regrets about the negotiation.


Some have suggested that large deals always resultin unsatisfactory comoromise, and that smaller agreements are better alternatives.

The administration of former US President George W. Bush, for one, prompted meetings among some 15-20 governments to discuss their own Climate initiatves.

These talks continue, but with no results.

Differences between lage world economies remain the same even in small meetings.

Plus, only large meetings can properly capture the needs of the developing world.


(… to be continue…)
