The Kyoto Treaty is an agreement that came about from the United Nations in the 1992 Earth Summit. It was established for the sake of cutting greenhouse gas emissions in order to avert hazardous anthropogenic intrusion with the climate system. Among the major achievements of the Kyoto Protocol is the fact that it brought into awareness the need for the cutback of greenhouse gas emissions and protection of the environment. In an actual sense, although most of its goals have not been met, the Kyoto Protocol has been a grand starting point.
Consequently, the Kyoto Protocol is assisting the world to work in unison in the protection of the planet Earth. On the other hand, the Montreal Protocol, established as a pathway for protecting the ozone layer by phasing out dangerous ozone-depleting chemicals, is recognized as one of the most successful treaties in the world. The Montreal Protocol has been effective in the elimination of ozone-depleting substances. As a result, it has been successful in phasing out well over 95% of all chemicals that it controls. The Montreal Protocol has also been effective in preventing global warming and working in support of the developing countries.
