@Dr Herbie: I never found China's claims about carbon reduction credible. If anything, I've figured that they are going along with it duplicitously to entice their Western competitors to continue cutting their own throats according to the treaties. All the while they continue to do things the "China way" behind the scenes.
And let's not forget all the other countries in Asia and around the world who are modernizing. I specifically mentioned more than just China. The West simply no longer has the stomach for competition (or the back, for that matter).
But, I suppose I should grab my tin-foil nightcap before I go off to bed. Fortunately I got it dirt-cheap since it was made in you-know-where.
