      Milan Boric sent this to the WCN list, and I thought it worth
      passing along.

      >Here are some fresh news from Belgrade !.
      >Serbian government has forwarded a proposal to the Parliament
      >for an urgent ratification of the Kyoto Protocol.
      >�The ratification is of immense political, economic, legal and
      >environmental importance for Serbia. It would bring about
      >the increase of the number of foreign investments, affect
      >the employment rate, and enhance the transfer of knowledge
      >and technology in the field of environmental protection,�
      >the government said in a statement.
      >Political aspect of endorsement of the Kyoto Protocol with
      >simultaneous adoption of a series of appropriate by-laws will
      >clearly indicate that Serbia embraced European values
      >pertaining to environment protection.
      >The statement also noted that the Protocol�s Annex B
      >stipulated obligations for the industrially developed states in
      >terms of mandatory emission limitations for the reduction of
      >greenhouse gas emissions, while the developing countries,
      >including Serbia, were not required to do so.
      >The 1997 Kyoto Protocol, seen as an amendment to the
      >legally non-binding 1992 United Nations Framework Convention
      >on Climate Change, sets mandatory limits on greenhouse gas
      >emissions for individual nations.

      >My comment to this report is that if you are able to read
      >between the lines then developing countries like Serbia
      >might be misused for foreign investment in dirty
      >industry projects with no limits on greenhouse gas
