It's official. 2005 was the hottest year on record
. Despite this new alarming evidence that the world is heating up, countries like Australia and the United States are still refusing to sign up to the Kyoto Protocol
. But with many (mostly on the conservative side of politics) claiming that the Kyoto Protocol is a failure
, what else can be done to stop the now clearly visible effects of climate change to our world?

Most of the world rejects
the USAmerican attempt to end-around-run the Kyoto protocols. Surely we'll get our way (I use the pronouns reluctantly in this case). Who can stop us? Besides, who cares? Not President-elect (de facto) Bush. Add the guiltless bloodshed in Israel/Palestine to this and my last post and it's hard to be thankful at the global level.
