The Kyoto global climate treaty needed ratification by 55 industrialized nations. 126 nations backed the accord but the treaty was short one
industrialized country. Now, Russia's signature validates the treaty internationally. Neither the USA nor Australia have signed on.
"Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Kyoto Protocol Friday, the last step in Russia's ratification of the global climate treaty. The
signature means the accord now has enough support to come into force early next year.
So far, 126 countries have backed the treaty, but the United States and Australia have both rejected it."

The science leaves no doubt that industrial activity accelerates global warming - or that in turn, global warming causes abrupt global cooling.
Climate changes predicted as part of the warming process include a new ice age, likely within a very short period of time.
Most of the world's nations are working to stop the process of accelerated climate change. The Kyoto Treaty aims to control global warming by
reducing greenhouse gases and so, to prevent the sudden appearance of a new ice age.
Multinational corporations do not have national loyalties, and are positioned to profit from climate change and an ice age. These powerful
corporations use certain nations to subvert the democratic process and push their agenda. It remains to be seen how succesful their efforts will be
with regard to the Kyoto treaty.
