Catastrophe-- Part 3 of a series
After you Alphonse: The western nations are embroiled in a fruitless debate with the developing world like China over who should reduce their carbon emissions. The growth in emissions will be in China and India, as they want to be like us. It is my observation that arguments over equity often result in everyone going down together. It is like an argument over who should bail as the boat sinks. Perhaps for every percentage that the US cuts its present emissions, China could reduce its growth in emissions by a similar amount.
