Democracy: A Journal of Ideas;Summer2009, Issue 9, p8
This article discusses the expiration of the Kyoto Protocol, an international treaty aimed at curbing global green house gass emissions. It contends that the end of the Kyoto Protocol is a good thing but the world needs a massive investment in new clean energy technology. According to the article, U.S. leadership on new global environmental protection treaty is important as reflected by the results of the December 2008 climate change talks in Bali, Indonesia. It highlights also the need for developing countries such as China and India to bind themselves to specific emission-reduction targets. In addition, it also discusses the defects of the Kyoto Protocol that must be addressed by any treating replacing it.
