The Quiet Death of the Kyoto Protocol: American Enterprise Institute

The Obama administration has rejected the Kyoto Protocol (ensuring it will expire), adopted some of former President George W. Bush’s key positions in international climate negotiations, and demurred when asked about reports that the president has decided to skip the December climate summit in Copenhagen. United Nations climate negotiator Yvo de Boer has concluded that it is “unrealistic” to expect the conference to produce a new, comprehensive climate treaty-which also describes the once-fond hopes for passage of domestic climate legislation this year-or even in Obama’s first term.

This is not how it was supposed to be.
