No, Seriously, Will We Blame China?

I opted to focus in on one particular aspect of the previous chart I posted before and I want to ask the left a serious question;

When China inevitably starts producing more carbon emissions than the US, will you go after them vehemently as you do the US? Because it's going to happen next year, 2009. Seriously, I want to know. Are there going to be protests? Are you going to contact the Chinese embassies? No doubt you are well researched enough on this that you already have plans to divert your efforts towards China? Right? Because you're so well researched? RIGHT? And we can expect mainstream media outlets to highlight China being the world's biggest carbon emitter hence forth, and not just independent publications The Economist, right????

No, wait, let me answer for you. You're not going to even expend one calorie of energy attacking China because the underlying, unspoken goal of this global warming farce is to stop capitalism. It's to stop progress. It's to weaken the United States. And it's to employ a bunch of otherwise unemployable scientists and activists and make people who've never contributed a cent of GDP to this economy feel good about themselves.

That's what it's all about.

Ahh.. it's nice to read something that's straight-forward and no bullshit :)

I just wandered through the last year or so of your blog. Very good stuff.

I think you have a chart fetish, though. I don't mean that in the "haha, this guy likes charts way," either. I mean in the full-blown, sexual, kinda creepy, stalking Excel programmers kinda of way.

Adam, Cappy has a song:

"I like charts, yes I do, yes I do! I like charts, how 'bout you, how 'bout you!"

Let the man chart... there are far greater sins.

Once China overtakes the US, the solution is simple: begin quoting per-capita emissions rather than absolute emissions.

I suspect that China's CO2 production levels are marginalized in the media because its rise makes it plainly obvious that installing a few CFLs and slightly ratcheting up CAFE standards in the West will hardly impact annual increases in global CO2 emission.

Of course you are right. But this is a war we are in with the Leftist maggots. In war the first casualty is always truth.

They are in the gaia frenzy, no different than the islamic whackos. Their leaders are evil and cunning. The rank and file is brain-washed stupid.

Large chunks of our population isn't even paying attention.

This will not end well.

I thought China surpassed the US sometime late last year.

China has four times as many people as the US, so even if they consumed twice as much energy, that would only be half as much on a per-capita basis. It doesn't make sense to hold them to the same standard in terms of total energy consumption.

It is notable that China is increasing emissions while trying to get out from under Socialism while Global Warming Enthusiasts in America are trying to drive America further to socialism using emissions as their lever.

I hate to be the one to break it to you and The Economist but China has already surpassed the US.


"The report, released Friday by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, found that in 2007 China’s emissions were 14 percent higher than those of the United States."

They already have. Google china produces more co2 or link to http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2007/jun/20/china.carbonemissions

Welcome Adam,

You have no idea how many people e-mailed me about your post and how funny they thought it was.
