    “Fact, we are the cleanest Nation on earth! fact our coal produces only 3% of the demon CO2 right now!”I have a feeling the real fact is you have no evidence to back those two “facts” up. The rest of your post smells like a heavily used pasture as well… like a lot of bull sh**.

    Do you know we tried to do this back in the 1970’s and all the power co. came back with it’s too expensive or the equipment is not there yet. but spent millions lobbing congress to stop this type of rules. If they had spent the money on the problem back then they would not be crying now.

    So, I understand that you believe the USA has something along the lines of 110% of the global population. However it accounts for roughly 5% of the global population. That coal alone accounts for 3% does not give much for a balanced share.

    I believe it is pronounced Be-li-ons. An economy of 17 trillion (That is seventeen thousand billion) can take an impact of billions in rounding errors.

    China now is the largest investor in green energy in the world. While it is true they also invest in coal they have a population about four times greater than the USA. A fair share of responsibility should at least belong to relative size of country.

    You don’t have facts, you have undocumented numbers. When disruptive technologies are introduced (and in the case of climate change, out of necessity, whether we like it or not), problems will arise and other problems will be solved. Nobody today bemoans the collapse of New England’s whaling industry in the late 19th century because the country began switching to petroleum. Yes, China is now the world’s largest polluter (of CO2 and practically everything else), but America must lead by example. Denying science doesn’t change the facts, Harleyquinn. Doing nothing just means that our children and grandchildren will have to pay all the more for the stupidity and stubbornness of people like you.

    You’re joking, right? That article was about China building slightly more efficient coal power plants. It didn’t mention your claims. It did, however, mention that China is also building wind farms and doubled it’s wind energy capacity in four years.

    “You 1st, You stop using your electric whatever and you save the polar bear.”.Your contempt for other living creatures is palpable.

    I’m still waiting for you to back up your claims.
