“The global economy carbon yin yang“. Anthony Watts tells us that it’s all China’s fault, which suggests that the USA doesn’t have to do anything. Anthony strangely doesn’t mention that industrial CO2 emissions only account for about 15% of the total.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, “A new study by scientists at the Carnegie Institution finds that over a third of carbon dioxide emissions associated with consumption of goods and services in many developed countries are actually emitted outside their borders.”
The manufacturing exports of China certainly contribute substantially to global industrial carbon emissions. But that’s the purpose of the various carbon taxes, Cap and Trade, etc. Make the carbon emissions directly impact the cost of goods and encourage industries to adapt!
