India (population 1.3 Billion) creates lesser CO2 emissions than the US
China's per-capita emissions is just around half of that of the US
[Edit: replying to comment about pollution and emissions
The Paris agreement is about climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
When Trump talks about polluters and withdrawing from the Paris agreement, it seems illogical to suggest that he wasn't referring to CO2 emissions]
To an overwhelming extent.
I don't see how anyone who calls themselves an engineer can stomach when this feel good ignorance is put forward as a solution- this is rearranging deck chairs to the highest degree.
Lead is bad for your health.
CFCs are bad for Ozone.
CO2 is bad for global warming.
All pretty much universally accepted.
European cars, with cheating and all, are miles ahead of US cars. And they have been heavily fined for cheating, as they should.
And China has not yet contributed a meager percent of the cumulated US CO2. Not to talk per capita.
The planet is not yours.
Let's accept that the Chinese are worse polluters than the US.
Congratulations, you are the second worst polluter.
What, did I hear India? Ok, you are just being difficult. Let's say you are the third worst polluter.
What? Did I hear ...? Stop it!
You are one of the worst polluters. Period.
Why do you withdraw?
And yes, you are the worst per-capita and accumulated polluter. In case you were wondering.
And this is pollution:
Which makes CO2 seem particularly cherry picked.
