  1. Implementation of the Kyoto Protocol has been difficult. Since it went into effect in 2005, several countries -- including Austria, Ireland, Spain, and most recently Canada -- have announced that they will not meet their emissions reduction targets. Many countries have not had time to make changes to their infrastructure or are concerned about remaining competitive with countries not bound by or exempt from the agreement's rules, such as the United States visa a vis China and India.
