I think the point here is that we have done a lot to reduce our carbon footprint in the past 20 years. We can put out zero carbon and it still won’t charge China and India’s reliance on fossil fuels and their pumping of CO2 into the air. While it may be disgustingly expensive and inefficient for us to transition to green energy, it can be done, though the debt bomb would be massive. China and India are not in the same position, so they will still keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere. So committing economic seppaku by forcing green energy on the US will not stop the accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere.
