    Now, in Ian's Corner you will a comparision citing
    World CO2 emissions.

    China has over 1.3 billion people and is slightly smaller than the US. China has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, particularly among rural women, an expert on suicide prevention.http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2007-09/11/content_6095710.htm


    The US has a population of: http://www.census.gov/population/www/popclockus.html

    China has been the world's most populous nation for some time at 362 people per sq mi, twice as much as the United States. Not too much room for everyone to drive a car yet, they are now in the lead. http://www.chinahush.com/2009/10/21/amazing-pictures-pollution-in-china/

    India, slightly more than 1/3 the size of the US, with a population of 1.1 billion continues to have :

    Water supply and sanitation in India continue to be inadequate, despite longstanding efforts by the various levels of government and communities at improving coverage. The level of investment in water and sanitation, albeit low by international standards, has increased during the 2000s. Access has also increased significantly. For example, in 1980 rural sanitation coverage was estimated at 1% and reached 21% in 2008.[1][6] Also, the share of Indians with access to improved sources of water has increased significantly from 72% in 1990 to 88% in 2008.[1] At the same time, local government institutions in charge of operating and maintaining the infrastructure are seen as weak and lack the financial resources to carry out their functions. In addition, no major city in India is known to have a continuous water supply[7] and an estimated 72% of Indians still lack access to improved sanitation facilities.

    Russia has a population of 139,390,205; is, approximately 1.8 times the size of the US. The male life expectancy is 59.5 years.

    The Rest of the World, the 49% is composed of these places shown below. Africa is the world's second largest and second most populous continent, after Asia. At about 30.2 million km² (11.7 million sq mi) including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of the Earth's total surface area and 20.4% of the total land area.[2] With 1.0 billion people in 61 territories, it accounts for about 14.72% of the world's human population.

    Africa remains the least developed continent, and the most plagued by disease, poverty and malnutrition.

    What do you think might be the number of immigrants legal or otherwise in the USA? Do they drive cars, how many per family. Are they living in an area where the climate control is necessary by either air,fan,or heat. Is electricity being used to cook with, heat water with, or gas. I wonder what the USA true, legit, numbers are for emissions, but we will never know.

    "There are currently 15 to 20 million illegal aliens in this country by many estimates, but the real numbers could be much higher and the numbers increase every day because our borders are not secure:

    How has the govn's of these countries benefited its people?

    How has these countries benefited anyone else.
    Making money off of us, profits them, so it is not counted.

    ha ha ha. I know. :) But, I figured out that if you took a country and did the math, dividing the size, the population, into, the US and its size and its population, then, figured in the emission ratio, and using a formula, figuring in the loss and gain of technology which might explain the low ratio for certain countries, ie, Africa, small country; the gain for China, other determining factors, illegals,etc. Then, it comes out that the US has been doing its job when compared fairly as would be in my formula. It would show that the numbers and the success we have provided for our citizens, plus, those that don't even rightfully belong here, has been great compared to the other countries with water system problems, over population, lifespan, mental health, and pollution such as we dealt with years ago, and so on. It is all a mathematic algorithm.

    I am feeling a tadbit better. :)

    So, when you do the math, you can be rest assured, we are doing our job at making this world a better place to live. When you figure in the numbers, all the determining factors all the possible variables, that emission number is incorrect, wrong.

    Do you know the difference between a bookkeeper and an accountant?

    A bookkeeper will tell you what the numbers say, and an account will ask you what you want the numbers to say ...

    Are you studying to become an accountant?!

    Do the math. It is easy. You will see. But, you will need to determine a few things first. They factor in. To do that, you need to study the %'s of that chart, of each country, its size, its population.

    And, read about the quality of life for each one, or the one you are interesed in at least; like India, for instance, water system, is not good at all for so many people. That is a factor. and, so on.

    As you go along you write out the formula and it just starts to apply. I am weird because my hobby is math.

    I think Ian's is high due to when they are done riding those bikes, or need new tires, they must burn them. :)

    See, here in the US, we use them for on the roads, in gardens, trees, heck, I gave away one for a Xmas present one year when money was tough. He didn't like it but it was the thought that counts, right? :)

    It made a beautiful planter. I dug up a couple of my neighbor's plants and it looked beautiful in it.

    *Come to think of it, I never saw an English Garden with a truck tire illustrated in Homes & Gardens. Why is this? :)

    The facts don't change by doing mathematical formulas! No country is truly doing a good job to lower its emmisions. Until we change our greedy overindugent ways especially in North America, there will be no significant change! If it makes you feel better though, then keep doing your formulas that pull the wool over your own eyes.

    Now Ian, this is new out:

    My question is this, Ian, what are the reasons for such a huge growth.

    How and why does it factor in.

    EIA projects declines in U.S. average energy use per person and per dollar of GDP ›
    Same website projects a decline in he US average energy use per person.

    Again, their are variables as to why. And, mathematically, it should be factored in to be understood and compared, ie education, improving water systems, health improving, less population, more population, longer lifespans, shorter lifespans, more jobs, less jobs, the economy of each country, etc, they are all components to the larger picture. Each component is part of the solution.

    Cookie, if you want these sorts of debates then the Corner is better suited to having them.

    I'll we waiting over there with Bob.

    But...

    First, Jerome is right.

    Secondly, China's and India's emissions are rising because the goods you buy are made there (no longer in America) and their standard of living is increasing. Plus those are big countries, with many times the population of America.

    But emissions for making things aren't really the issue. If you look at the numbers, most CO2 emissions come from transportation (cars and trucks) and heating and cooling for homes.

    Per person, America does real bad on both counts.

    Tax gas. Tax coal. And promote the use of renewables. Do it now. Or China will develop the technology and America will miss the boat.

    You'll just have to lose the V8. And I'll have to stop internet shopping from stores in California!

    You or anyone at all, are entitled to your opinions of course, just so you realize they are wrong. :) When you say, "americans" per person, is this including the millions not really legal to be here? If the mass amount of people in India is enjoying a better lifestyle, could it be because now they have money to buy things? to climate control? to own a car? Too create more global warming all on their own. We are damn if we do, or damn if we don't with you and other countries. Are you saying, that we should let them live in poverty or squalor? And, China, are you saying that they do not have the capabilities to clean up their own pollution? Ian, do you realize how you sound regarding your attitudes toward Americans? You say you love us, but, to me, it is more of a slap and a tickle, which is gross. China has more than enough of manpower to clean up their country of pollution and enough of scientists to do what WE did...here, in the US. You need to rethink things regarding what you are saying about these things, for you only see and understand things from a very anti american view.

    Bob and I are very happy over here with our debates, of course you are welcomed but, this works for us as fine and dandy as a frog hair split 8 ways.
