Host: The Heritage Foundation. Delegates from the Unites States and other nations will soon gather in Copenhagen to work on a successor treaty to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, whose provisions expire in 2012. Many proponents of the Kyoto Protocol had hoped that the Copenhagen conference would conclude with a major new agreement containing stringent, binding, and enforceable post-2012 targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the decades ahead. Supporters of such a deal also expressed optimism that President Obama would get America to join in this new agreement. But reality is intruding. The Kyoto Protocol approach has proven to be far from a success that deserves to be extended. Join us as our panelists discuss the many issues facing the attendees at the Copenhagen conference.
