More Perspective on Emissions
China has increased its emissions by approximately 50% over the last seven years. This increase by itself represents as much CO2 emissions as the entire countries of Germany, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, and the United Kingdom COMBINED, and they are literally adding the equivalent of Great Britain's emissions every 9-10 months. The harsh reality here is that even if the West went back to rubbing driftwood together, hunting and gathering, etc., the world would still be increasing its emissions and the only folks who would be worse for ware would be us.
