Communist China, exempt from Kyoto, will be the biggest carbon emitter by the end of the year

Whatever one may think of the Kyoto agreement, the fact that is exempts Communist China has long been a chief argument of its critics against the deal. Proponents have argued that while Communist China's emission levels wouldn't challenge America's for years to come.

Well, that line of argument has passed its best-by date, literally. New figures from the Communists themselves (of all people) have revealed that the United States will fall behind Communist China in carbon-dioxide emissions as early as this year. In fact, emissions from Communist China have nearly doubled since 2001 (San Francisco Chronicle, see graph here). Or, to put it another way, "China's greenhouse gas emissions have recently been growing by a total amount much greater than that of all industrialized nations put together" (emphasis added).

Even those who fervently believe in man-made global warming must now agree that Kyoto is useless without including what will soon be the largest carbon emitter on the planet. All it will do is allow the Communists to continue to rapidly overdevelop, destroy its ecology, build up its military, and arm or otherwise aid terrorists without any qualms while the free world geopolitically handicaps itself.

Again, this post is not meant to raise an argument about "climate change" (that's for my other blogs), but it should make clear that Kyoto implementation must be opposed by anti-Communists or all political stripes.
