It’s Getting Hot in Here: The Kyoto Protocol, Ten Years Later

On the tenth anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol, the international agreement designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Houston Press presents a package of stories commissioned by the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.

Author and environmentalist Bill McKibben takes a look at the past decade and asks, “Where are we now?” while skeptical environmentalist Bjørn Lomborg questions the Kyoto Protocol’s effectiveness.

Rounding out the package is writer Ed Smeloff, who wonders what will happen this month when the nations of the world come together in Bali, Indonesia, to start negotiating for a post-2012 climate plan.
