    Well yes, that’s true if you for some reason are inclined to measure CO2 production by geography alone. Then remember that China has something like five or six times the population of the States and adjust for CO2 production per capita, and you’ll see that, on occasion, there might be good reasons you’ve never heard of something or the other in the media.

    Per capita:

    USA: 15.53
    China: 6.59
    India: 1.58

    Being the two biggest polluters in the world, China and USA are responsible for 41.36% of the world's total CO2 emissions. Obviously those two countries should be doing the most to reduce CO2 emissions.

    China is the world's leader in clean energy investment and production. It has also outspent Europe and the USA combined in moving its economy away from polluting energy. It still isn't enough by any stretch of the imagination, but their leadership is actually committed to transitioning away. Next time, think before you post.

    Emissions are a direct consequence of industrialization and go hand in hand with a country's GDP. America and Europe's industrialization peaked ages ago while third world countries are still catching up and their economies are growing exponentially. The only way China/India/Africa etc. could avoid raising their emissions is by staying agrarian and poor which no country is going to do. The reality is that we in are death spiral towards collapse unless a radical change in the global order occurs.

    I liked this because it prompted thinking and not because it's a familiar stance that I've been fighting for over time, so more thought provoking commentary in opposition would be welcomed even if angry fighting words will be ignored (but this thread seems beautifully absent of all such things and that's cool too)

    Avoid propaganda, of which the purpose is to suspend critical thought and spread uncritical thought.

    But if you must suspend critical thought, I recommend having a sound track.



    Particularly one with Faye Wong singing, and female jet pilots.

    Human development starts with people that want progress and progress with those around them, not people that want to swap fluids between themselves in a torrent of their collective contempt and disgust.

    What's your fucking progress?

    This was used in an anti-corporate context and I support that, but it could probably be used in an anti-government context or with the intent to call out any persuasion of bootlicker, so I'm providing a generic public service.

    It bugs me that a comic is supposed to be snappy or like "haha, nice hypothetical scenario" or something but this is just like... taking a photo of my son when he's puking as a comic about the dangers of food sickness and then calling it a comic. I mean yeah, it puts forth the point, but it's just a potato being called a potato.
