Andrei Illiaronov, an influential Russian economist close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, has come under fire for saying: “‘The Kyoto Protocol is a death treaty, no matter how strange this seems, because its main purpose is to stifle economic growth and economic activity in countries that assume obligations under it.'”
He’s right, although he should have said “assume and fulfill.” The EU assumed Kyoto obligations, but most of its member nations are not fulfilling them.
