Greenpeace Spain defends Kyoto climate treaty

Greenpeace Spain has made defending the Kyoto protocol its top priority for 2004. The NGO said that Spain's compliance was "in grave danger", citing an intense campaign against Kyoto by Spanish business groups (EED 08/12/03).

"Kyoto is a thermometer of governments' commitments to the preservation of resources," said Greenpeace. "Compliance is a challenge but retreat should not be permitted." See press release.
