No you are wrong dude, China is the nation that pollutes the most. By some nearly 25% more than the US.
The difference though is the US has 300,000,000 people, and China 1.3 Billion people. So that's about4 times as many people.
So because of that, environmentalists like to say WE pollute the most.
But in actuality, should having more people give you more right to polluting more?
Nay, the earth will die all the same, whether having a billion people to justify it, or having 1 person. China pollutes the most, and like the US,
they will soon find out how dependant they are on that industry. The problem is until we have Fusion power, we are dead in the water, Hydrogen is NOT
a fuel source, and so we are forced to rely on coal//oils//natural gas. Even if we turned ALL of the continental US into a solar panel, we'd not
generate enough electricity for the US.
Until we get Fusion power, the Kyoto agreement is simply not sensible.
