Background The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is committed to helping its Member countries and the entire international community to move towards sustainable development. It is critical to understand how economic, environmental, social and development policies can best reinforce each other to accomplish this. Climate change can impede progress towards sustainable development by harming the global ecosystem and the planet's life-support systems. Globally, it threatens to inflict huge costs on economies; locally, it can put communities at risk, particularly those dependent on natural resources. Governments and citizens around the world have a major stake in addressing this threat effectively, efficiently and equitably. The OECD and its affiliates are working with governments and other stakeholders to inform the debate through objective assessments of viable response strategies. - Kyoto Summit, December 1997 Today Based on this idea, the pro-Kyoto crowd has declared Carbon Dioxide as a major pollutant and hence want to curtail the production of such gas from man-made activities such as: Raising too many cows Having any kind of industry Fossil fuel based Powerplants Automobiles, Trains, Planes Cooking Smoking So, pressure is on Bush to enact legislation to reduce consumption of above items.
