Kyoto Protocol signatories

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ol_signatories

I check the list of Kyoto signatories and checked it twice. I don't see Algeria, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait,, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates or Venezuela on the list. Why don't they want to reduce green house gasses? All members of OPEC.

So what is the difference between them not signing and not ratifying and signing it and not ratifying it (like the US)?

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)

I know, why the big deal about the US not ratifying it and them not even signing it.

We were discussing the Kyoto treaty. A guy from Finland, asked why Bush won't ratify the treaty. I said, the Senate ratifies treaty and it won't pass the Senate. If the world is behind the Kyoto treaty and the US is holdig it up, why doesn't OPEC just reduce production to 1990 levels. Then oops, they aren't signatories to the agreement. They are the crack dealers wanting everyone in the world to keep buying their products.

His said, the US shoud reduce consumption but OPEC shouldn't reduce production because the demand will continue to rise. How is the demand going to rise when the world has committed to the reduction of fossil fuels usage to 1990 levels? He had no answer.
