Just in case you were closing out some international agreements or ratifying treaties soon i thought i should quickly let you know that one of the pretty important courts here in the US made a ruling and as i understand it made out that unless a treaty or protocol made specific reference that the states here in the US had to abide by it then it wasnt binding to the states.
So for example if the US federal govt ie the president, were to join Ruddy and finally ratify the Kyoto Protocol to reduce CO2 emmissions if the protocol did not specifically state that the protocol was binding to the states, the states could simply ignore it!
My inside soruces tell me this decision is now under appeal so ill let you know how that pans out!
