This is so despite widespread support for the Convention among U.S. industry, environmental NGOs, academics, Congress, and all U.S. Presidents since the Convention was submitted by President Clinton to the Senate for its advice and consent to accession in 1994 as well as nearly universal global adherence (some 165 States).
