Kyoto results – just hot air?

The Kyoto Protocol (brought up by Clinton, signed by Gore, and voted down by the Senate by a 95-0  vote) was supposed to be a first step in reducing greenhouse gases.  Have those countries that signed Kyoto actually  lived up to their  obligations?  NRO has a story on this topic.

Promise:     5% below 1990 levels.
Result:      27% increase. 

Question:  would it have succeeded (if we only had tried harder!!)?
Answer:      A reduction of
0.14°F over 50 years.

Cost:         Trillions spent for not much benefit.
Opinion:     Feel good hot air about hot air.

In climate change, apparently nothing succeeds like failure.

And now they want to try this again?  Hah!
