On July 25, 1997, John Kerry and Ted Kennedy, along with 93 other senators (with five senators not voting and none voting in opposition) adopted a resolution stating that ‘the United States should not be a signatory to any protocol to, or other agreement regarding, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of 1992, at negotiations in Kyoto.’ The Kyoto Resolution vote was 95 to 0 against sign such a treaty.President Obama pushed Congress as hard as he could to pass a climate change bill. He even threatened to regulation CO2 at EPA if they failed. They failed and President Obama is regulating CO2 at EPA. Even President Bush addressed global warming in his Clear Skies Iniatiative proposal.
Al Gore has been second to none in promoting climate change mitigation since he left office. But his criticism of President Obama's climate change work is inaccurate and unjustified. (Image courtesy WSJ)
