ABSTRACT
The article reports that over half of the European Union nations who signed the Kyoto Protocol are behind their declared goals and only Germany, Sweden, and Great Britain are set to meet their goals for 2012. It is suggested that Europeans have motivation to decrease greenhouse-gas emissions because they hope to perpetuate their image as being more environmentally conscious than the U.S., which refuses to sign the Kyoto Protocol.
