Russia signed the Kyoto Protocol to decrease emissions of greenhouse gases. This is something that has frustrated me literally for years, that everyone signed but the few making the most mess. It's been languishing for seven years because the nations that need to sign most, won't.
Now left of the large, industrial nations are Australia, and America. Remember that short-sightedness I mentioned yesterday?
YAY, Russia. We suck, all the rest of you get this baby on the road without us, and I'm sorry.
