The Kyoto Protocol is an international treaty which extends the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that commits state parties to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, based on the scientific consensus that (part one) global warming is occurring and (part two) it is extremely likely that human-made CO 2 emissions have predominantly caused :// This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.

This is K. MacIntyre, R. Riddle, D. Scott, T. Soltay, K. Stewart and T. Zupancic (), Ratification of the Kyoto Protocol: A Citizen’s Guide to the Canadian Climate Change Policy Process   Recognizing that climate change is a global problem and emission reductions are desirable regardless of the place where these are made, the Kyoto Protocol has envisaged three market-based mechanisms: clean development mechanism, joint implementation and emissions trading.

Clean development mechanism   The Kyoto protocol was the first agreement between nations to mandate country-by-country reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions. Kyoto emerged from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change   concerning climate change, especially since the signature by the federal government of the Kyoto Protocol in Part I, entitled Intergovernmental Background, outlines intergovernmental activities leading up to Kyoto and key developments in the intergovernmental process (National Process) since the signing of the Protocol.

Part II, The Kyoto Protocol has been ratified by states and is now fully operational. However, the Bush administration's repudiation of the Protocol combined with the weakness of the targets raise a confronting question for students of legitimacy: is it possible for a regime to be legitimate but ineffective in solving the problem it is designed to address.
