The thing that all these countries are signing (bar U.S., Aus, few others). It's got to do with the environment, preserving it, finding new alternative power sources, etc etc.. Not sure on the EXACT details, but pretty much, if aus signs it it would mean no more cole industry which would mean economic depression for the country... If also means that the country is doing our part to preserve/fix/maintain the environment i guess.
And not sure how its spelt kyoto/kyote whichever... It's something like that =/
That's the weakest most gutless thing I've ever seen the government do, not signing that. My other more serious hobby is growing rare fruit trees and I hang out with people that spend all day every day logging temps. The climate is breaking much faster than most of you realise!, I think it's going to freeze rather that get hot in the longer term but that's just my opinion
Kyoto Protocol,my vote is negative due to the magnitude of restrictions that will be established,the ozone layer is healing itself to a degree and is depleting at a much lesser rate than it was 10 years ago.In this day and age,my concern for the longer term is the safety of this country,not a group of greenies jumping up and down yelling ''Were all doomed,DOOMED I SAY!!''.
