A step in the right direction  
Putin commits to signing Kyoto Protocol - http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/europe/11/05/russia.kyoto.ap/index.html

I don't think this is the perfect solution to the problem but is certainly does show an awareness of the problems and that it is ia *global* issue, displays a willingness to address the problem and do so on a multinational basis, and is certainly a step in the right direction.

We had our chance to be reasonable and keep our hand (and therefore our interests and opinions) in the game, but instead took our marbles and went home when the rest of the world didn't agree to 'my way or the highway' - http://www.cnn.com/2003/TECH/science/12/01/us.kyoto.reut/index.html

I'm looking forward to further developments and will follow this with great interest.
