Now that china is producing more greenhouse gasses than every other developed country combined, what can we do? If we can’t stop them from ramping things up, should we consider geoengineering?





China is building a lot of solar and wind, pumped storage, nuclear power plants and everything else.

Not compared to the amount of coal they are rolling out. https://www.newscientist.com/article/2317274-china-is-buildi...

Its incorrect, but besides the USA China does produce the most. Both of us gotta get our acts together https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_carbon_di...

The usa and europe are doing amazing. They are down to 1920’s or 1940’s levels depending on how you count it. And they didn’t just out source it.

Most of the stuff in an American's household being "made in China" does not count as outsourcing?

Please look at the data.


is it un-ethical to look at total polution instead of per capita polution ?


WHy not per gdp?
