I looks like the US will stand it ground regarding the Kyoto agreements. Along with Japan it is pushing for voluntary emission targets. Manditory standards will stop economic growth which fuels research and progress in technology to reduce emissions.

Does anyone besides me think the US (and Japan) have taken the correct position on this?
