Get Ready for Koyoto

MOSCOW (AP) - Russia's Cabinet approved the Kyoto Protocol on global warming Thursday, clearing the way for the worldwide adoption of the pact - despite U.S. opposition - once the Russian parliament ratifies it as expected.
The protocol must be ratified by no fewer than 55 countries that accounted for at least 55 percent of global emissions in 1990.
Without Russia's support, the U.N. agreement, which has been rejected by the United States, cannot come into force. Washington says the treaty puts a disproportionate burden on the American economy and favors developing nations.[url=]Source[/url]
