ABSTRACT
The author discusses the Kyoto Project, a clean development mechanism that aims to keep the carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere by the 2012 by slowing down the rise of carbon emissions. This project aims to lessen greenhouse effect that causes worldwide global warming due to carbon dioxide emissions from industrial manufacturing. The project also wanted several companies in developed countries to pay China after destroying the HFC-23 gas. The author mentions that implementing tax on fossil fuels can also solve the problems of greenhouse gases.
