The article reports on the Kyoto protocol's hope of pegging greenhouse gas emissions back to 1990 levels by 2010 is looking less viable. Carbon dioxide emissions rose 4.5 per cent last year to 27.5 billion tonnes, a massive 26 per cent higher than in 1990. According to a study published by the German Institute for Economic Research in Berlin, the U.S. is still out in front pumping out 5.8 billion tonnes in 2004.
