Maps not very clear[edit]

THe maps are hard to understand since there is no legend. Why not use the same maps as many other language versions:

Kyoto Protocol participation until 2011:      Signed and ratified.      Signed, ratification declined.      No position.
Kyoto Protocol extension period 2012-2020 participation      Parties; Annex I & II countries with binding targets      Parties; Developing countries without binding targets      States not Party to the Protocol      Signatory country with no intention to ratify the treaty, with no binding targets      Countries that have renounced the Protocol, with no binding targets      Parties with no binding targets in the second period, which previously had targets


Urgenda's climate case and klimaatzaak[edit]

In the Netherlands, Urgenda (http://www.urgenda.nl/en/climate-case/ ) won a lawsuit against the Dutch state for not doing enough against climate change. I'm wondering whether they reffered to their Kyoto protocol commitments, or any other commitments they took. The same goes for Klimaatzaak, a similar lawsuit being undertaken in Belgium.

If it referred to their Kyoto protocol commitments they didn't reach; it should be mentioned in the article. KVDP (talk) 11:32, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

The decision is available here and requires some close reading. The UNFCCC and the Kyoto protocol are not considered directly applicable towards people/organizations, but the Netherlands has a duty to take care of its people and their living environment (Constitution article 21). The judge decides that scientific international consensus dictates a reduction of 25-40%, and thus requires the state to do the minimum: 25%. L.tak (talk) 13:17, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Targets[edit]

Wow, what a mess. The table showing the GHG Annex I commitments is a mess. First, it is important. Hiding it is nonsensical. Second, the title is VERY confusing:"Annex I countries under the Kyoto Protocol, their 2008-2012 commitments (% of base year) and 1990 emission levels (% of all Annex I countries)". There are NOT two parenthetical fields for each of the 38 countries listed, despite the clear implication in the title that there are. Which of the two are actually represented in the actual parenthetical information is not obvious. I suggest that the table be totally reconstructed and should have the following (sortable) rows. Country name. Kyoto 2008-2012 ratification status. 2012 Target compliance status. Base Year. Base year equivalent emissions. 2012(?) equivalent emissions. It would probably be useful to also have base year(1990) GDP's and 2012 GDP's
A June 2016 news article claims a study done (ref below) claims most states met their targets, but there are reasons to doubt the report's accuracy and neutrality. Igor Shishlov et al.

Could add more information on why Canada decided to back out, and its plans now that there is a new Prime Minister in office. Sources to be used: [1] [2] Paige Kremer (talk) 18:49, 1 March 2017 (UTC)Paige Kremer
