Newshour this evening mentioned China and US carbon emissions about 6 times.

Saying China was the biggest emitter with US in second place. I just want to say that I feel this really feeds into the China bashing GOP crap that Trump was so good at. Take a look at per capita emission data, collected two ways on this Wikipedia page. Of course emissions level will correspond with population levels. What is the intent of such reporting? China is way down the list when considering the country has 1.4 BILLION people...USA? 330 Million. 1/4 of China.

Just saying.

1. As far as I'm concerned, the USA was the biggest polluter for decades, and

we got rich doing it. Now that we recognize the problem we created, bashing China, India, etc., doesnít seem right.

Something has to be done, but itís not as simple as putting strict limits on countries who are trying to help their people economically. Donít have the answer, but thatís not right.
