Excerpt: Why doesn’t John Kerry just move his whole climate change doomsday melodrama to Beijing or Mumbai? We’re sure they will listen to his self-righteous lectures.
The chart below shows China now has double the CO2 emissions as the United States and will soon have triple our levels of greenhouse gas emissions.
Meanwhile, India is on pace to surpass the U.S. in emissions in the next few years even though their GDP is about one-fifth as large as ours.
