Kyoto is dead

I see Ronnie Horesh had an article on Kyoto published in the Herald recently:
It also seems likely that anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are a cause. But that doesn’t mean that cutting back on these emissions is the best way of preventing or mitigating climate change. In their efforts to get the absurdly unworkable Kyoto agreement off the ground, its proponents have squandered precious political capital, and set back the cause of those looking for realistic alternatives.
The shennigans of many climate research scientists associated with the first IPCC report into climate change brings into question the entire field of climate proxy research, not to mention the widespread belief the Earth has rapidly warmed during the period of greatest anthropogenic [=human caused] "greenhouse gas" output . So I don't agree with the statement "anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are a cause". But even if the Earth is heating up because we're driving cars rather than riding horses which fart methane, Kyoto was never a realistic 'solution'.
