Consequently, if countries wishing to cite per-capita data also manifest significant income disparity, they should first be prepared to address the disparity issue. A more equitable method would be to link the price an individual pays for CO2 to something more fixed, for example, their purchasing power or consumption. It does not make sense to try to address social inequality on the basis of arguably arbitrary geopolitical lines. The other concern expressed by non-Annex I countries is based on the disproportionate “historical emissions” contributions of Annex I countries.

Consequently, most countries sent lower level delegates to the Mexican meeting, unlike the event in Denmark, which was largely attended by heads of state. The running joke before the conference was that at least the weather would be better. Suffice it to say that expectations were not high [21]. In one sense, the conference had a predictable outcome in that some of the key Annex I ratifiers of the Kyoto Protocol announced that they would not renew the treaty after its scheduled expiration in 2012—unless the US and China agreed to join a similar framework requiring them to reduce emissions.

While several Kyoto signatories are on track to meet emissions limits, many are not and others are relying heavily on emissions credits (purchased from developing countries) to achieve their goals [12]. The following graph compares the actual changes in emissions of the Kyoto signatories (including the US) since 1990 with their ratified (or, for the US, proposed) targets. This comparison does not take into account international credits from the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) or other accredited external emission-mitigation efforts.
