Fareed Zakaria, the former host of Foreign Exchange, on PBS, made about the silliest statement that I've ever heard from a PBS news show host [maybe this is why he recently stopped hosting the show - he got canned as a kook]. He argues that if we don't pay China to not burn coal, they will burn coal, so we should pay them. David Gergen rolled his eyes and asked how it would go over with the US auto workers if we can fund China, but not them. I, on the other hand, nearly choked to death on my coffee. But the heart of his point is valid. What good does it do for the US and the rest of the world to reduce CO2 emissions when China is building a new coal power plant every two weeks? Does China intend to be the world's environmental tyrant? All products imported from China should be taxed severely for environmental damages.
