China, who boasts 1/5th of the worlds entire population, also has the worlds strictest population control policy...often enforced in draconian fashion (aborting the near-term infant, or flat out killing it at birth). This has worked so incredibly well for China, hasn't it?
If we can`t get the country with the single largest population to even pretend to follow "green" laws, the rest of the world must suffer and be forced back into the dark ages to compensate?
At what point does this start to turn into a rally cry of "Lets nuke China before they drag the rest of the world under?"...a justification for the survival of the rest of the planet, if you will. What about other 3rd world countries who don`t follow "green" laws?

@Musuko: Lets take that 'dump in the pool` and examine it:
China: 1,300 pounds of poop into the pool Canada: 33 pounds of poop
How to make the pool cleaner? Kyoto Accord: Canada must reduce it`s poop output by 6%! China, however, can POOP AWAY! THUS: Poop is reduced from 1,333 pounds to 1,331 pounds HOORAY!
Sane People: Um, China should poop a lot less!
Reality: If Canada didn`t poop AT ALL, it STILL wouldn`t make the pool any cleaner! And that would mean Canada would return to the pre-stone age, no fires even! NO electricity, NO cars, NO heat in winter, NO farming. Is that going to happen? I sure hope not!!!
