When NPR Says The Kyoto Protocol Is Dead... must really be dead.

The landmark Kyoto climate treaty, a global warming pact negotiated 12 years ago, is unlikely to live on after its 2012 end date.

Diplomats are working on a new treaty, because, you know, the last one worked so well. I'm curious, how well did the signatories do at reaching their Kyoto goals? Here are two reports, 3 years apart, on Europe.

Oh, Kyoto's been dead for some years. It's just that as the follow-on becomes more clearly an effort by the poorer countries to extort money from the richer countries or to get trade concessions from the richer countries which would amount to the same thing it gets tougher to sell it as a solution to the freight train of environmental destruction that's hurtling down upon us all.
