The following is a quote from Article Three of the Kyoto Protocol.
7. In the first quantified emission limitation and reduction commitment period, from 2008 to 2012, the assigned amount for each Party included
in Annex I shall be equal to the percentage inscribed for it in Annex B of its aggregate anthropogenic carbon dioxide equivalent emissions of the
greenhouse gases listed in Annex A in 1990, or the base year or period determined in accordance with paragraph 5 above, multiplied by five. Those
Parties included in Annex I for whom land-use change and forestry constituted a net source of greenhouse gas emissions in 1990 shall include in their
1990 emissions base year or period the aggregate anthropogenic carbon dioxide equivalent emissions by sources minus removals by sinks in 1990 from
land-use change for the purposes of calculating their assigned amount.
Now, I'm just wondering something. There are countless
websites that state the year 2012 is mystically significant. All I really know about
the mystical aspect is the Mayan Calender ends on this year. The year 2005 pops up a lot too. So what am I missing here? Do the Draftees of this
protocol know something we don't? What's your guess?
