"Shortly following the negotiation of the Kyoto Climate Change treaty, the United States Senate, by the rare unanimous vote of 98 to nothing, adopted a non-binding resolution expressing opposition to the Kyoto Treaty. Consequently, that treaty was never presented to the United States Senate for ratification. Perhaps the major reason for that broad statement of opposition in the U.S. Senate was the absence of any obligation in the treaty for leading developing nations such as China, India, and Brazil to undertake greenhouse gas emissions reductions. Why, opponents ask, should the United States assume the painful burden of reducing emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2010 if the developing world, which accounts for most of the growth in greenhouse gas emissions, is assuming no burden whatsoever?"--Page 1
