    • Global Warming Conference

      The Global Warming Conference is held in Kyoto, a reference to the International Kyoto Protocol which was an international agreement to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, in an attempt to reduce global warming. The United States withdrew its signature from the Kyoto Protocol once George W. Bush stepped into presidency. Opponents say the Protocol is designed to harm developed nations economically and would not be effective at reducing emissions. It was rejected by the Senate in 1998.
