Thomas, the thing about Kyoto that pissed off the world was that it was a treaty designed to help the planet as a whole, not national interests. It took a long time to get something as substantial as that on the table, and without the U.S involved it was worthless as it would have little or no effect on the worldwide CO2 emissions without all the major emitters on board. The U.S was seen, as you said, to be protecting it's own national interests over the interests of the future of the planet. Which is one of the things that led to growing annoyance at the perceived arrogance of the U.S, not least in Europe.

I'm more concerned with the chlorine and flouride levels in my water than anything else and I doubt Kyoto was concerned about that.

I wouldn't worry about SUV's. This global warming thing is bogus.
