Objectives

Kyoto is intended to cut global emissions of greenhouse gases.

The objective is the "stabilization of greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system" UNFCCC-2.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has predicted an average global rise in temperature of 1.4C (2.5F) to 5.8 C (10.4F) between 1990 and 2100. Current estimates indicate that even if successfully and completely implemented, the Kyoto Protocol will reduce that increase by somewhere between 0.02 C and 0.28 C by the year 2050 (source: Nature, October 2003).
