With Canada pulling out of the treaty, Japan and Russia declining to engage in the commitment den the US not ratifying the Kyoto treaty. All these are major factors that have impacted the performance and delivery of this treaty. The lack of support from the G7 is enough to guarantee the failure of this treaty and thereby reducing the general efforts that have been made in reducing the greenhouse emissions. Many countries have been pulling out of this treaty for personal reasons, and many have kept from ratifying it. These are among the reasons why these efforts that have been put forward by scientists and policymakers to help mitigate the effect of global warming while reducing the rate or even reversing the current trend.

Based on the teachings of German philosopher and distinguished gentleman, Karl Marx propagated that a state is only a tool that is used to benefit the bourgeoisie, and this leaves the proletariat with nothing. All the policies that remade are made in favor of the bourgeoisie. Socialism provided for communal ownership of property.
