There's been a lot of talk about Kyoto this week, which is kind of confusing. I'm actually going to the city of Kyoto next week. So it's annoying that people are going around using Kyoto as some kind of shorthand for the cure to global warming. I'm sure it's an honor and all to name such an important agreement after an historic Japanese city. But that city still exists. So please, at least call it the Kyoto Protocol, Kyoto Treaty, or Kyoto Accord. Or at least something other than just plain Kyoto. Thank you.
