    Just one more insult to the sea. Would only China was the only one, alas, sand may be the least actually toxic thing being dumped, all around the world.

    As opposed to the Republican policy since Nixon of kissing China’s rear and exporting jobs as rapidly as possible? I’d call “nothing” a good thing by comparison. But you never want to compare Republicans and Democrats, you want to compare Democrats with some imaginary perfect world.

    “…the world’s number one emitter of greenhouse gases!”

    …is the USA when you rate it on a per-capita basis.

    AW, C’mon you can’t do that. You can only use the one single (out of thousands) metric that allows the haters to hate. don’t you know, EVERYTHING is Obama’s fault? Even in countries where he has no business interfering? He knows the Constitution. He follows legal advice and he’s a do-nothing dictator here at home. I guess because he’s not doing exactly what the Republicans want everywhere in the world, (Not enough war to profit from I guess) anything any other sovereign country does is his fault too.
    .
    And we see just how well Obama, working with other nations to negotiate an agreement with a third party nation to curtail undesirable activity goes over with the RepubliCONs in Congress. Is it any surprise that even when Obama does try to do something with another nation nobody believes it can get done? "
    You can’t trust the United States to keep its word because we Republicans in Congress will make sure the United States doesn’t keep its word." And then the sycophants say it wasn’t treason, it was patriotic to undermine their very own government over which they have effective control over 2/3s of.

    I remember reading, years ago, that 25% of all coral reefs were dead. It’s probably 50% by now. And it hasn’t been because of the construction of artificial islands, but at this point, ANY further slaughter is significant.

    Over all the US is still the top emitter. However we are all emitting and until we stop with the extra emissions from fossil fuel use little will be changed.

    Mirror global trends
    The study, which examined 6,000 surveys of more than 2,600 Indo-Pacific coral reefs done between 1968 and 2004, found the declines began earlier than previously estimated and mirror global trends. The United Nations has found close to a third of the world’s corals have disappeared, and 60 percent are expected to be lost by 2030.

    Quick! Renew their “most favored nation” status! It worked when Clinton and Bush did it, right?

    Just a note; “bleaching” of reefs isn’t the result of this idiotic “territory building” effort on the part of China to expand their national boundaries in international law. The expansion of U.S.. waste, among many other countries, yes, chemicals, plastics, sewage, etc. is a world wide oceanic problem that we contribute to way in excess of our population; world-wide!


    Americans, as a populace, and a government, always blame “the other guy”, for all ills, and refuse to accept the role assigned by their mirrors.

    i hate to tell mr. toles, but china could care less what others think of them, and with a population of over 1.3 billon they certainly are not alone.
