Quote of the day from Copenhagen

By Juliet Eilperin

Key Quote of the Day:

"Emissions are emissions. You've just got to do the math," Todd Stern, the U.S. special envoy for climate change, speaking on why China needs to commit to curb its greenhouse gas emissions as part of a political agreement coming out of Copenhagen.

China's greenhouse gas emissions now account for 20 percent of the world's total, and will be roughly 28 percent by 2020.

China is rapidly on its way to become the world's largest superpower. Obama's putting our nation in hock, so we can waste another trillion on trying to occupy Afghanistan and to save the planet from a harmless gas.

China is laughing at us and so is the rest of the world. We are such fools. With complete state control, China will say they are "saving the planet" too, while they continue to belch smoke for decades to come. Ditto for India and Saudi Arabia. They are too smart to fall for global climate stupidity.
