The UN has released a lengthy report calling for more
efforts to the use of fossil for energy to rid-
May be an impossible task as coal, gas and oil produce 70% of all energy plus 60% of the electricity grid
Made more difficult as China and India are in a massive program to build coal fired electricity generators|
When it comes to reducing carbon emissions China and India are not willing to be carbon emission abnegators
For each step the western world takes to curb emissions for their economies at great cost
China and India will take two steps backward with new coal fired power plants and the emission reductions are lost
Once again the U.S. and its allies are supposed to our prosperity sacrifice
While China and India are bringing large numbers of coal plants on line—no dice!
The UN report called for a global effort to carbon emissions reduce
But what is expected from the Western Gander should also be expected from the Chinese and Indian Goose
We must not crucify this nation’s economy on the cross of carbon emissions decreases
That are matched or nearly matched by Chinese and India carbon emissions increases.
