Global Warming specials: Free fans, sun lotion, ice, popsicles
“If it’s really our fault, why don’t we demand that China and India make the same draconian cuts the AGW folks want the US to make?”
I agree totally, as I have in the past in this forum. What we do in the US is peanuts compared to what India and China are doing to our planet; even if we “cleaned up our act” 100% (if that is theoretically possible) it wouldn’t matter much to planet earth without cooperation. I don’t see that happening. As a matter of fact, China has dealt with the problems of having to inform its citizens about health problems with breathing the air by loosening the requirements, so there will be fewer warnings. They have also gone on record as saying that air pollution is good because it gives people a common enemy. There is much to overcome. And as emptc12 points out, the deforestation around the Amazon is a potential death sentence.
I am not foolish enough to think that climate change originates with man’s use of fossil fuels. I am willing to believe we have contributed to this, and it would be nice to stop doing that. Nature will take its course, but “it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.”
