7 The Kyoto Protocol (countries committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions) was drawn up but some countries refused to sign it. President Bush said it was not in the interest of the USA, and leaders of developing countries said it was not fair to expect them to have the same restrictions as developed countries. Some of the proposed solutions are so far reaching and costly that they can only be achieved by international cooperation, but not all nations are prepared to be involved. In 1997 the countries of the European Union (EU) called for a 15% reduction in carbon emissions. The EU has made an attempt to conserve fish stocks in the North Sea by the introduction of quotas. This is not popular with communities that depend on fishing for a living, and many fishermen have gone out of business. Sources of renewable energy are being developed. In Sweden, 50% of domestic waste is incinerated to heat homes. Recycling is a feature of everyday life in Britain. Cameras are used to prevent fly – tipping, and industries that pollute the atmosphere or rivers are prosecuted and fined. Several cities are proposing to follow London in introducing a congestion charge, to keep cars out of the city centre. Car manufactures are cutting down vehicle emissions. The provision of cycle lanes can help to reduce traffic. What can be done? Planting of trees and hedgerows is being encouraged.
