The Kyoto Protocol Essay

The Kyoto Protocol            The Kyoto Protocol, made by the United Nations in order to solve the problems of global warming, is seen as the primary solution to the problems of the environment and the problems of man. It covers more than 160 countries worldwide, in support of its efforts to avert the problems of global warming. There are several aspects to consider regarding the Kyoto Protocol, including several policies and principles.

            These principles include the separation of the governments into two categories which are the developed countries and the developing countries. More emphasis are given to the developed countries, since they are the ones who have accepted the Green House Gas emission reduction obligations which requires them to be able to submit an annual report and greenhouse gas inventories, which are proven to cost them some amounts. In the Kyoto Protocol, it states that the countries which are unable to comply with their obligations are held liable to penalties which are more on sums of money which would really cost the country.            Because of this, many countries appeal on those who impose the Kyoto Protocol. This is because of they find that it is unnecessary to fine the country just because of failure to comply.

They see that these fines are not needed, and that it will only worsen the case. Those who don’t wish to pay fines would rather not engage in the efforts of upholding this Kyoto Protocol, especially if they feel that they don’t have the liability to do so. The Kyoto Protocol, instead of becoming as solution, becomes an additional burden to the country and its people. So the efforts for the environment, all the talks and negotiations all just go to waste.
