If we cut back on our coal consumption and burn donkey dung instead everything will even out won’t it? /s
Does this mean we have to pay China lots of carbon credits to fix the global warming problem? I’m not entirely sure I understand the carbon credit calculations.
Better ask Al Gore, I guess.
Clearly China is worried about man-made global warming. /sarc
I got a better sense of who burns the most coal, but no sense whatsoever about coal and climate change.
Earth to WaPo...your “science” is as believable as a speech by the bat-eared-b*stard.
Well gosh then.
Let’s import more things from China, and send more of our factories over there.
The China model is what the world elites love.
This to me is the end of the argument. Whoever promotes a carbon tax should explain why China should get away scot-free if in fact this is a global problem. Unless Congress suddenly acquires the authority to cut CO2 emissions in China, Congress really has very little to say about global emissions. If in fact it really is a problem - and I dont give real credence to the sort of supporting evidence published to support that thesis - I guess were in for it, because means anyone is even willing to contemplate cannot solve the problem.
Judging from the focus of the article, mercury and acid-rain causing sulfur emissions are apparently not a problem for Chinese coal burners.
We should switch to BS for fuel. There is an endless supply in Washington, D.C.
All that coal burning has done wonders for the air quality in China. It’s like London’s coal poisoned air in the 17th century. And libs, of course, are blaming the US for China’s coal usage. They claim the greedy folks in the US are forcing China to use coal so they have enough energy to manufacture and supply us with consumer goods.
