The Geography
Of Carbon Emissions

by Jack Dini - May 23rd, 2009 - American Thinker

China is adding 100 gigawatts of coal-fired electrical capacity a year. That's another whole United States' worth of coal consumption added every three years, with no stopping point in sight. Much of the rest of the developing world is on a similar path.

As Fareed Zakaria notes,
"The combined carbon dioxide emissions from the 850 new coal-fired power plants that China and India are building between now and 2012 are five times the total savings of the Kyoto accords. So you can put in all those curly light bulbs and drive all the Priuses you want: India just ate that for breakfast and China will eat the next round of conservation for lunch."

Jane Orient adds this on the futility of reducing emissions; "In a symbolic gesture, the Forces of Darkness, which are trying to end an age of enlightenment and reason, urged people to turn off their lights for an hour between 8:30 and 9:30 PM local time. Bjorn Lomborg calculated that if 1 billion turned off their lights for 1 hour, it would have been the equivalent of shutting of China's emissions for a full 6 seconds.

It will not make any difference to the enviro-extremists here in America. Carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas, but they don't care. They want socialism and they choose to blame carbon dioxide to ram their socialist program forward. The planet may not be warming, but they don't care. They want socialism and they choose to blame warming to ram their socialist program forward. Nuclear power is the cleanest form of energy, and when not burdened with years and hundreds of billions of dollars of useless studies, the cheapest, but they don't care. They want socialism and they choose to blame nuclear danger to ram their socialist program forward.

The agenda of the socialists is clear. They want to weaken America. When every single goal of their agenda harms America and every single goal is known to be a lie, the only rational conclusion is that the enviro-extremists really want to harm America. All the details are illusion and deceit. This is about destroying America. Nothing more.

I can't think of a better closing sentence than this article's quote from Peter Huber, "What we can do, if we're foolish enough, is let carbon worries send our jobs and industries to their shores, making them grow even faster, and their carbon emissions faster still."
