The paper discusses the impossibility of reaching an unanimous agreement over the need to act against pollution and gas emissions. The paper explores the elements that define the overall framework of the global environmental policy and discusses the causes and effects of the lack of action, both political and practical, coming from developed and developing countries alike. The paper focuses on the Kyoto Protocol of 1997 and its failures. The paper concludes that to face up to the challenge of protecting the environment, solutions and forums are not the answer, rather, the solution lies in the diligent implementation of the agreements reached.
