Debunking Kyoto Success

You really should read this article from Prometheus (actually you should just start reading Prometheus regularly, but that is another issue).  Roger Pielke explains that the gains that the UN is reporting in reducing emissions are attributable to one time events – primarily related to the collapse of the Soviet Union – and very little to do with any success of the Kyoto protocol.

Mr. Pielke, says that he doesn’t see any evidence of Kyoto in the numbers, but I have to admit that it is possible, theoretically, that it could be worse without Kyoto.  I’m still skeptical though.
