From the Cheap Seats: Which is More Fictional, Kyoto or Khotimer?

Vladimir Putin has decided he needn’t be bound by the Kyoto Protocols that ushered in the latest round of “global warming fever”

So Cheap Seats has a question.

Vladimir Putin has decided he needn’t be bound by the Kyoto Protocols that ushered in the latest round of “global warming fever” — and made Al Gore and Mrs. Sen. Mark Udall, aka, Maggie Fox, ever so wealthy and the Climate Reality Project (CRaP) a legend in its own mind.

The 7-year-old protocol was criticized by Russian officials for having done nothing to limit greenhouse-gas emissions into the atmosphere.

Ukraine and Belarus said they also might void the pact, making the protocol a victim of a rare former-Soviet triple threat. Even the Poles have fared better than the protocol. Perhaps what’s missing is some good, old KGB-style enforcement.

Which tugs us back to the question.

Fans of “Star Trek” will recall that in 1991, movie-goers were introduced to the Khitomer Accords, a galactic deal intended to bring peace to the Federation and the Klingon Empire.

We know that the Khitomer Accords were later amended and expanded to include a ban on subspace weapons and that the Kyoto Protocols have had all the staying power of an extra in a “Star Trek” landing party.

So Cheap Seats has to ask: Which agreement intended to address a fictional problem was more grounded in reality, Kyoto or Khitomer?

The answer is, well, fascinating.
