thank you for joining the fray

I have posted information for quite a while now.

You will find that corbin, here, and redstatesman and writeroflight (?) will disagree with you, particularly that last person, who has a blog that 1. denies that temperatures are rising (against all data that supports it) 2. denies that he denies that temperatures are rising, and 3. denies that human-produced emissions are the source.

As you can see from corbin's statements, you will have a few detractors who will attribute this to a "left-wing" conspiracy and put up straw dogs like China and India (which of course should limit their emissions because China's in particular are becoming atrocious) which of course excuses the U.S. from spewing out emissions.

Just because these industries are making billions in profits, regulations on emissions, they say, would be a disaster.

Let's see, they said that about worker safety laws, anti-trust laws, minimum wage laws, previous antipollution regs, etc.  Somehow U.S. industry still thrives and still makes a profit.

Bush and corbin and RSM and "purveyorofdarkness" would have people believe there is no threat except to the existence of U.S. industry and that we should do nothing about it -- "laissez-faire" (which, incidentally, helped to bring about the Great Depression). But I diverge.

Anyway, welcome to Blogit.

Yes it's true that........

The United States is number one in greenhouse gas emissions primarily because it is the number one economy in the world. With 5% of the world's population we produce 25% of global wealth. And despite being relatively clean and green, Germany leads Europe in emissions, because it is Europe's largest economy. Our emissions are not out of line with the size of our economy.

And it's worth noting: the International Energy Agency is forecasting that China, with a smaller economy, is expected to surpass U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2009.

More important than current emissions is the trend line. What is actually happening to emissions? Are they being reduced? This, after all, is what Kyoto is supposed to address.

According to data from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, from 2000-2004--the most recent period for which we have good, comparative data--U.S. greenhouse gas emissions increased by 1.3 percent. This is an increase, but a very modest increase. The EU-25, on the other hand, increased collective emissions by 2.1 percent.

And, no, this is not because the new EU members added since the 2004 expansion run dirtier economies than the previous 15 members, and this then bumps up the numbers. Actually, the new members have the opposite effect. Those nations--by moving away from some older energy technologies like brown coal--are part of the good news story. If the new EU members did not bring down the average, the old EU-15 would get a worse report card--having increased emissions by 2.4 percent during this same time period.

You'd think 850 coal fired power plants in 8 years would pollute something?
One of the many problems I have with the Kyoto Treaty is the exemption of China and  India......you see, they are considered developing countries instead of developed ones like the industrial West......well, there's a hell of a lot of developin' going on over there......

China is opening a new coal-fired power plant big enough to serve the city of San Diego somewhere in China once a week.  More than fifty a year.  Within eight years, China will have over 550 more coal power plants than it has now.

India is building a new coal power plant on average now every two weeks, and will have over 200 new plants within eight years. 

While the US is adding only 72.....

Add to that the fact that most of the plants in China and India will be old technology.....dirtier..... China and India sit beneath the Asian-brown cloud... visible from space... laughing at the useful idiots pushing for Kyoto. 

From the CSM:

"China and India are building coal-fired capacity as fast as they can," says Christopher Bergesen, who tracks power plant construction for Platts, the energy publishing division of McGraw- Hill.China is the dominant player. The country is on track to add 562 coal-fired plants - nearly half the world total of plants expected to come online in the next eight years. India could add 213such plants; the US, 72.

The phoniness of the Left on global warming is most clearly demonstrated regarding coal......Speaker Pelosi is forming a new House Committee on Global Warming........while Barbara Boxer is submitting a bill to ban all coal power plants in the country.  It's all hate-and-blame America all the time.

So why isn't Al Gore in Beijing condemning the Chicoms for destroying the planet?  Or Barbara Boxer or any other Lefty? 

China's coal use alone will within a decade exceed that of all industrialized countries in the world.....(yes, Senator Boxer, that includes us).....and will surpass by five times the reduction in greenhouse emissions called for in the Kyoto Protocol........yet, they are exempt from the regulations of the treaty.

It makes one wonder if the Left fabricates environmental concerns and supports the Kyoto Treaty for the purpose of economically crippling America.
