Abstract

This article is a response to Bruce Pardy's critique of the Kyoto Protocol in Bruce Pardy "The Kyoto Protocol: Bad News for the Global Environment" (2004) 14 JELP 27. The article argues that while the Protocol is not a solution to climate change, it is a critical first step toward global cooperation in line with the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities.

Keywords: climate change, Kyoto Protocol, UNFCCC, environmental law, international law
