Rooting for China

December 19, 2009

This is the last time you will ever hear me taking the side of a communist country. This time however, it’s clear that China is the only country in the world that is being smart about Copenhagen and climate change.

As the Copenhagen climate farce continues, China is the only thing standing in the way of a major agreement. The other countries know about it, and they’re getting desperate, especially Barack Obama. You see, China (unlike the rest of the developed world) realizes that climate change regulation such as the Kyoto Protocol and Cap & Tax does nothing for the environment but irreparably damages the economy of every country or jurisdiction that signs onto it. This is why the signatories of Kyoto have failed to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by any noteworthy degree, yet have experienced declines or drops in economic growth since the signing. The United States has managed to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and has experienced economic growth which has outpaced the signatories of Kyoto.

Why is it that the fascists in China realize that costly and worthless climate regulation is not worth gutting an entire economy? Maybe Obama will realize this when China and India start to outcompete us. Only when Hope & Change lead us deeper into economic depression will Americans and the rest of the world wake up to the disaster that is global environmental regulation.

  2. As per http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/12/19/national-sovereignty-and-climate-change-at-copenhagen/ , the less than stellar result of the UN conference on climate change can be seen to point to the antiquated absolutist approach to national sovereignty in the wake of the technological changes of the 20th century.
