2001 was not an auspicious year for
international agreement on climate change.
First, governments failed to emerge from the
Hague climate conference with even a
compromise. Next, the new US President,
George W. Bush, reneged on his campaign commitment to curb CO2 emissions. This was followed by news that, as far as the new US administration is concerned, the Kyoto Accord — designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions — is dead. This film takes a look at how difficult it is to align what science indicates must be done with what the international
community is prepared to do.
