Russia and the Kyoto Protocol: It's all about oil and gas, stupid! As often said, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. But, could a “good” decision be made, if not for bad reasons, then for reasons not directly connected with the decision's moral content? If we look at how the Kyoto Protocol (K.P.) debate is evolving in Russia, the answer seems to be “maybe.”
Minister of Economic Development and Trade, German Gref, is in charge of this contentious issue. Given that fact, plus whatever protests may be staged by the presidential economic advisor, Andrei Illarionov, I believe that Russia will, at last, ratify K. P. by the end of 2004. However, hot air, global warming and CO2 have probably counted for very little in the evolution of Russian thinking.
