Climate Change

European Commission counselor Donkers looks to next steps after Kyoto Protocol

Delegates from around the world will head to Montreal later this month for a conference on global warming and the Kyoto Protocol. For the first time, countries will begin discussing what to do after the Kyoto treaty expires in 2012. Robert Donkers, environment counselor to the European Commission delegation, explains the strategies European nations may use to get developing nations such as China and India to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Donkers also discusses whether new interest in global warming policy in Congress and in the U.S. private sector will affect the Bush administration's stance on international climate negotiations.
