ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Kyoto global warming treaty took effect on February 16, 2005, with more than 125 nations pledging to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. However, the United States and Australia — two of the world's largest industrialized nations — are not parties to the Kyoto Protocol. Environmentalists, including the Sierra Club, have criticized the Bush administration for ignoring the global warming issue and challenging the scientific consensus that greenhouse gas emissions are contributing to a warming of the Earth's atmosphere.
