I have mentioned in the past, the United States of China has done a much better job for their people economically than has the United States of America.
But, when they took American jobs, freely given to them under NAFTA, China began producing enormous amounts of CO2 emissions, and raw pollution.
Someone on a forum called my statement about China producing more CO2 than the US, and that outsourcing costing the US tax revenue, ‘infantile.’
Some people are easily confused with the facts, and like ‘Joe Friday’ used to say, “Just the facts.” *
The following was my response, and I did not even mention the rest of Asia, or include India in the comparison.
“Well, you can attack the truth, or you can attack the author.
You could have seemed more intelligent and unbiased had you attacked the data ……
So, you really believe outsourcing American economic might (jobs – manufacturing) to China did not outsource
And you believe CO2 emissions in China were not increased? You believe they have strict pollution controls compared to the strict controls in the USA?
See how much easier it was for me to attack your claim?
If you want more data: China is one half to one third the US economy (http://www.heritage.org/research/rep…hich-is-better), but they produce 40% more carbon (http://www.theguardian.com/news/data…-data-co2#data) ….. effectively, almost 3x the carbon output for the same size economic engine …..
If you had remained silent, I could not have removed all doubt …..”

Now that we ignited the massive production of CO2 in Asia, can we get the threat of global warming under control? Notice I wrote threat, because global warming leveled off 15 years ago. (http://southdakotapolitics.blogs.com/south_dakota_politics/2013/01/global-warming-leveling-off.html ).
