Where Is All the Carbon Coming From?

Image via Watts Up With That!?
Global climate treaties are increasingly aimed at the heart of developed nations in Europe, North America, and Oceania. The leaders of the US, the UK, Australia, and the EU are falling over each other in the attempt to submit their nations to most crippling regime of energy starvation conceivable. Yet it is clear from the chart above, that the US and Europe can not control the rest of the world's carbon emissions.

So the rest of the world accelerates its CO2 spew unhindered by the international climate gestapo. In fact, under proposed new Copenhagen rules, the North America and Europe would have to pay the third world reparations into the $trillions -- while at the same time reducing their own energy output to starvation levels. Why are western leaders so driven to place their nations under such draconian and self-destructive international energy regulations and reparations?

Call it energy anorexia -- the Obama - Pelosi - Brown - Rudd disease. Like anorexia nervosa, energy anorexia is a deadly pathological response to an imagined problem. Energy anorexia threatens the life of the body -- in this case the nation.

There is no greater threat to an industrial economy than the restriction and destruction of its energy base. This tragicomic self-destructive impulse is made all the more pointless by the obvious fact that it will not change anything, in terms of global carbon balances.

Fin, thanks for linking to my post. I feel that this is a very important issue. There is nothing that the US or the Europeans can do to affect the rising CO2.

Keep up the good fight.

Thanks to you, Willis, and all of your fine work.

Sometimes just going on the record with the obvious truths that are being overlooked, is the best one can do.

Eventually the steam goes out of the steamroller and the bandwagon slows to a stop.
