Australia Signs Kyoto

Australian has just signed to ratify the international global warming pact The Kyoto Protocol. The Kyoto Protocol as it is now will expire at 2012 so its time for a change. This is a dramatic step in helping co2 emissions to go down and leaves United States the only nation to not to participate "Australia's new Prime Minister Kevin Rudd signed the paperwork Monday to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, making good on an election promise that will leave the US isolated among industrialized countries in shunning the international Global Warming pact."(nationalgeographic.com)
Is this important? Definitely, it's pushing U.S. one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases to go along. This shows we are one step closer to helping Planet Earth and now United States has to do its part.
Australia itself doesn't emit a lot of c02 gases but that doesn't mean it doesn't contribute to climate change. "Australia's overall contributions to global greenhouse gas emissions are small, but it is one of the largest polluters per capital and its stance on Kyoto is powerfully symbolic"(DailyTelegraph.com)
Hopefually, as we continue to stop Global Warming from wiping us out, thier will be binding commitments and treaties that will cause more awareness and contribution beyond the Kyoto Protocol.
