The Great & Powerful Bush

He was able to reject the Kyoto treaty before he was elected President.
President Bush rejected that accord, saying it would harm the U.S. economy and unfair excludes developing countries like China and India from its obligations.
Actually, the U.S. Senate effectively rejected the accord in 1997, during the Clinton administration. By a 95-0 vote, the Senate passed a "sense of the Senate" resolution declaring that the treaty should not be ratified. You already know this, but some things bear repeating. Curtsy: CQ

Notable rejecters of Kyoto:
  • Biden
  • Boxer
  • Dodd
  • Feingold
  • Hagel
  • Kennedy
  • Kerry
  • Landrieu
  • Leahy
In fairness it must be said that some of these folks (notably Kerry) voted for the sense of the Senate resolution to prevent the treaty from being brought to the floor and defeated outright, in the hopes that it could be ratified later. The fact remains that this was before Bush's time. In Bush's time, we've decreased our CO2 emissions and Kyoto is being eclipsed .
