Kyoto Accord goes into effect?

The Europeans (especially French) love to sign treaties which they follow, so let's see if they meet their goals:

In Japan, a tireless supporter of the pact, the enactment was being met with a mixture of pride and worry that the world's second-largest economy is unprepared to meet its emissions reduction targets.

The Kyoto targets vary by region: The European Union is committed to cutting emissions to 8 percent below 1990 levels by 2012; the United States agreed to a 7 percent reduction before President Bush denounced the pact in 2001.

The entire purpose of the Kyoto Accord was to try and destroy the American econcomy. Europe knows we tend to abide by our agreements, whereas they never do. They saw this as a way to get us to cripple ourselves while they pretended compliance and lifted up their economies at our expense over a supposed environmental crisis that doesn't exist.
