Chairman Boxer's fuzzy memory

There is considerable confusion among the Democratic Senators as to whether or not the U.S. has signed Kyoto. Senator Lautenberg stated the U.S. has not signed Kyoto. Chairman Boxer -the Chairman of the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, mind you - thought that President Clinton had signed it, but President Bush had rescinded the signature. The U.S. signature remains on Kyoto. The U.S. Senate could ratify Kyoto if it wanted to.
