Okay then....the same people that see it like you should be the same ones that are screaming "WE NEED TO CLOSE THE BORDER AND DEPORT EVERY ILLEGAL" since every single one of them is going to have a far more negative effect on the "climate" being in America than they would if they were not in America.

But they're not. You know why? Because they're full of s--- and they know they are.

You ain't doin' a d--- thing, no matter how much it makes you feel good to thumb your nose about it (not speaking about you/to you specifically, but all the pompous environmentalists who are goofy about this stuff).
China was taking in about half the world's unwanted paper and plastic for recycling when it decided last summer it didn't want to be the global dump. On average, some 20,000 tons of that material was arriving here every single day — not to mention glass, scrap metal and other waste.

You would know it's a scam.........

Increasing CO2 levels can not be dangerous at all....if it was.....no country would be allowed to increase their CO2 emissions

...the only thing that global warming has increased..is the amount of money..funneled through the UN...going to those undeveloped countries...and that includes China
Exactly this. It's a brutal scam that the communists of the West are more than happy to promote.

..I see, so you're admitting it's about money..and until India/China etc emits as much CO2 per person as we have....they get to increase their emissions

...so increasing the level of CO2 in the air...is not dangerous at all

India has increased their CO2 emissions more than any other country besides China > https://4k4oijnpiu3l4c3h-zippykid.ne...o2-720x513.png

...and no other country has lowered their CO2 emissions more than the US...

No one would count any real pollutant that way..

Irony is when you also have to pay developing countries money....through the UN....for them to increase the amount of arsenic/CO2 they dump in the ground.

It's the biggest Ponzi scheme ever invented.....

I'm saying we've crossed the Rubicon on fixing the climate crisis, and there is no action we take that will mitigate it.

Mom, you and I agree 100% on that....

Even the whackiest liberals agree developing countries should be allowed to develop...
...and that means they are going to increase their emissions

If the US emissions are 10 times what India is per person....and over 2 times more than China per person
...and the metric is "per capita"...per person

What is that going to raise CO2 levels to when they catch up?.....it's ~400ppm now....what will it be then? 800ppm? 1000ppm+?
...10 times and 2 times takes it way over 2000ppm

..obviously the powers that be...do not see that as a problem

If the USA disappeared tomorrow...zero emissions....we would not drop it enough to matter

Yes.

Unless somebody figures out how to make nuclear fusion viable and cheaper than coal, we are in for a massive amount of global warming. The tropics and subtropics will gradually become uninhabitable, and all of the people who live there will be migrating to a neighborhood near you.

If anyone thinks that “Trumpism” is bad now, wait until all of Latin America is streaming north across the border.

the UN/IPCC says the tropics and subtropics will see the least effect from global warming...
...it will mostly be in the higher latitudes

Which will extend the growing season for crops...and even allowed some crops to be planted and harvested twice a year

They are not receiving funding to increase their emissions, but to support mitigation and adaptation actions that will address climate change.

Untrue Africa will be the most vulnerable continent.
