The Kyoto Protocol's Connection to the World
Transcript of The Kyoto Protocol's Connection to the World
The Kyoto Protocol is an agreement signed by many nations to help reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere. The main purpose was to fight the greenhouse effect on Earth (the climate change).
What Is The Kyoto Protocol?
The Polar Ice Caps
The Boreal Forests
See The Connection?
How it Works:
Each nation that signed the Protocol is responsible for reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in that country. Developing countries were not as highly entitled to contribute as much money as developed countries were, considering the fact that they were struggling to provide the basics. United States and China are both the top greenhouse gas emitters and yet they didn't signed the contact.
Canada's Involvement :
Canada was the first nation to withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol. The agreement ended in 2015 but Canada did not meet it's commitments. Canada knew it was going to fail so it dropped out early

The big issue with the polar ice caps melting is that animals living in those northern areas do actually depend on it, such as polar bears. They use the ice to eat, sleep, and mate, as well as carry out other daily tasks. Since the ice is melting away, the polar bears are dying.
The boreal forest is located in the areas of British Columbia, and Alberta. The problem here is that as it gets hotter, a tiny insect called the mountain Pine Beetle has been slowly moving through the forests of British Columbia and has now entered Alberta. As a result, since 1993, millions of lodge pole pine trees are dead. It is predicted, that by 2013 the beetle will have wiped out 80 percent of the pine forest.
Now the Kyoto Protocol was a great thing to organize, but the problem here is that some of the countries did not keep their accords as promised. One of the countries was Canada. Canada stated that keeping with the rules would hurt their economy, so they withdrew from the Protocol.
After the Kyoto Protocol was signed by many nations the amount of greenhouse gas emissions released into the atmosphere increased to which it was supposed to decrease. Some nations including Canada withdrew from the Kyoto Protocol since it's expectations affected its economy structure.
The Affects of the Kyoto Protocol
Connections to Canada and other Countries
The Rapid Climate Change
The Over Populated
Most developing countries are also highly populated and as developing countries try to meet their basic needs the population growth expands. People in developing countries depend upon the nature considering that wood is used for cooking, shelter, transportation methods, furniture and more, whereas soil is being over farmed and waters are being over fished. Global Warming (the sudden increase of overall climate) is threatening the developing countries as they are desperate for the environment.
Even though people are constantly being informed about the rapid climate increase, they still have yet to realize how we as a planet will be affected. The leaders of a country should at least understand that. We that if Canada could not meet the requirement, then fine would hurt it's economy, but maybe a negotiation can be made with the people of the Kyoto Protocol.
For the last couple of years global warming has been taking affect. There has been a rapid increase in the temperatures in Earth. The climate change causes harm to agriculture which is a threat to developing countries because agriculture is one of the ways that they produce food and hotter temperatures cause drought which is makes it hard for vegetation to grow. The rapid climate change is affecting people in countries near the equator as they start experiencing hotter temperatures and the north pole considering the polar ice caps that are melting away leaving the polar bears habitat less.
Not only the boreal forest though! As it gets hotter bio invasive species start to make their way into vegetation and agriculture, and that also affects the developing countries.
What is a right or wrong decision?
Ask yourself: did Canada make the right decision towards withdrawing from the protocol. Some pros that Canada stated from the article was that we didn't think that Kyoto Protocol would be a success because developing countries weren't contributing as much and that the U.S and China are the world most largest polluters and yet they didn't sign the protocol. Also , ever since the Kyoto Protocol existed the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere increased where it was supposed to decrease. Was is the right decision?
Thanks For Watching!*_*
This concerns everyone. Global warming effects everyone.
No one can run away from it, but everyone can help stop it.
The Kyoto protocol was a very good thing to organize, and countries should be grateful that some people actually care. what i don't understand is why almost all the countries dropped out. The economy is no excuse. They could've asked to lower the penalty prices.
The Kyoto Protocol should not have a fine, but countries should still find a way to reduce their emissions. There should be another way.
