It was right for New Zealand to sign the Kyoto Protocol
Reasons To Disagree
It was wrong to sign the protocol, when the full implications, social and economic to the country were not realised. It has disadvantaged us in international trade.

No, lets not pay other countries for planting forests, or for our agriculture and industry, lets actually do something useful.

Kyoto is a total waste of time, space and money - only idiots signed it.

The world has been getting warmer for the last 200 years, since the end of the little ice age. The evidence that this is due to rising CO2 levels is not convincing.

Reasons To Agree
YES - Because we live in global environment that is being harmed by human activites, and that will become in-habitable if we continue with current harmful activites. Money is not everything: we must act now to save the planet. Kyoto, while not going far enough, is a large step in the right direction.

Yea that's one thing we beat Australia to the punch at ;) However... we certainly have not reduced our emissions to that of 1990... in fact it's increased!! Probably wasn't such a good idea if we weren't going to follow through!
