America First and Climate Change
The average American produces about 20 metric tons of greenhouse gases every year. In China the average person produces about 8.49 tons per year. In India it’s 2.28 tons per person. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_greenhouse_gas_emissions_per_capita
Trump has said he might not withdraw from the Paris agreement if it isn’t unfair to America. Can you imagine what will happen to the planet if China and India began to produce 20 metric tons of greenhouse gases per capita? If everyone in the world, 7.5 billion people began generating 20 metric tons of greenhouse gases per year?
What is your take on this?
It’s already too late. The acceleration has begun.
And it will accelerate for decades now. Not keep growing, but accelerate.
So the answer to the question is: it would be worse. Obviously.
