China Greenhouse Contributions

The lamestream media told you:
America's addiction to gas guzzling SUV's is fueling the rapid warming of the Earth through emission of greenhouse gases. This has already lead to climate change, severe storms, the warmest summer on record and will eventually lead to the destruction of the planet and the end of life as we know it.

The only solution is to force Americans to drive small or hybrid cars, reduce emissions at every level regardless of deterioration our economy might suffer, and get used to living small in everything we do.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
A quick check of multiple web sources confirms that the communists in China burn between one to one-and-a-half BILLION TONS of coal per year, and will continue doing so until at least 2020, when they may want and be able to introduce equivalent amounts of imported oil and natural gas. China has nearly 20% of the world's known coal reserves, and communists traditionally have a dislike for the volatility of foreign energy markets.

The carbon dioxide generated by that coal is the equivalent, according to one televised estimate (Glenn Beck), of running three billion Ford Explorers 15,000 miles per year. The Uninvited Ombudsman tried but couldn't handle the math to convert energy-equivalent gallons to coal, and so cannot confirm that estimate, but invites you to try.

A billion tons of coal may be easier for Page Nine readers to visualize as two trillion pounds. Now THAT'S a lot of carbon dioxide.

The entire population of the United States -- including children below driving age and people who cannot afford a car (let alone a big one) -- is only 300 million. Lamestream sources failed to make any comparisons, perhaps because communist China's dictators are impervious to suggestions.
