    Kyoto Protocol

    The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement linked to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The major feature of the Kyoto Protocol is that it sets binding targets for 37 industrialized countries and the European community for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions .These amount to an average of five per cent against 1990 levels over the five-year period 2008-2012.

    The major distinction between the Protocol and the Convention is that while the Convention encouraged industrialised countries to stabilize GHG emissions, the Protocol commits them to do so.

    Recognizing that developed countries are principally responsible for the current high levels of GHG emissions in the atmosphere as a result of more than 150 years of industrial activity, the Protocol places a heavier burden on developed nations under the principle of “common but differentiated responsibilities.”

    The Kyoto Protocol was adopted in Kyoto, Japan, on 11 December 1997 and entered into force on 16 February 2005. The detailed rules for the implementation of the Protocol were adopted at COP 7 in Marrakesh in 2001, and are called the “Marrakesh Accords.”

    Recommendation for a better read on your smartphone (not necessary in tablets):

    The application has several zoom options:

    -The simplest is to double click on the screen and self-adjust to zoom in clearly legible. To return to the previous state is done by double clicking. If your smartphone is oriented to landscape mode to zoom or pan auto-adjust the width of the screen giving you a perfect reading.

    -The second option is to touch the screen of your smartphone with two fingers and keep your fingers apart or open. This zoom is typical of Iphone. This option only smart phone with multitouch support.

    The advantage of this option is that the zoom is set to the desired point.
