I don't think this is an unconstitutional agreement but seems to be within the realm of States' Rights. Can't a state cripple its economy and bankrupt its people if it wants to?

"Can't a state cripple its economy and bankrupt its people if it wants to?"

Our dear Maine legislature passed and our Dear Governor signed a watered down version of the kyoto treaty.

LD845

This bill requires new sources of greenhouse gases to be
reported to the Department of Environmental Protection. It
also requires the department to create an inventory of
greenhouse gas emissions associated with state-owned
facilities and state-funded programs and to create a plan for
reducing those emissions. The bill also requires the
department to enter into carbon emission reduction agreements
with nonprofit organizations and businesses. Finally, the
bill requires the department to develop a long-term climate
action plan for the State.

I think you are right. Perhaps this is the reason Congress is not saying much....giv'em enough rope and they will hang themselves! When they start begging for federal aid to save their economies....to damn bad!
