That's o.k. We have to do it anyway. If we are smart, we will use the delay to move ahead in the pollution control and alternative energy industries.

While the chinese are asleep at the wheel, we could be creating a bunch of jobs and ultimately driving down the pollution that is killing our species.

Here we go again. Here is the problem people, no other country gives a SH!T about air quality, mean while we are trying to cut emmissions and frown on the oil, coal, and wood industries. We need to use more of our own natural resources in this country and put more people to work using them. Capping coal power plants in the dumbest decision that could ever be made. Global Warming is a joke, check the facts for anyone that dosent believe me. From 1999-2008 Our terrible country has actually cooled. Its snowing today, give me a break and shut up people. All we are going to do is hurt ourselves by putting more people out of work in the energy industry which is almost the only thing going in this failing nation.

We are the only country that is going to cut anything. That is one of the major reasons that the manufacturing sector of our country is moving over seas. Wake up America!

Easiest thing to do is don't buy items made in China or at least try not to purchase items made in China.

Ooh big surprise!

Of course China isn't going to cripple its economy. You have to be a guilt ridden white Liberal to agree to something like that.

OK, so a huge chunk of our manufactoring is already offloaded to China anyhow, so with China going full steam ahead, it won't cut into our total standard of living.
Meanwhile we get to look like the good guys with our wind mills and soy hotdogs.
That's right, China, just keep those cheap rubber duckies coming. Just remember to provide your worker anrs with HEPA face masks and give them a 1/2 hour break between their two shifts.

Well we all know Obama won't cross China since they own us now, I trillion in securities...Also go look at some historic values of CO2 in time, 300,000 years ago the levels were the same as today, we survived them. We can't change what is going on with the earth, but have fun trying...
