China's Carbon Footprint Now and Later

Remember Americans, only YOU can prevent global warming! So be sure to recycle religiously, cram yourself into the smallest possible bicycle-powered car you can, use only one square of toilet paper, and change all your light bulbs to those crummy dull ones with a nice dab of mercury in the center.

China needs your help and hopes you are all just that stupid. Here's some China news by the numbers:

30: Number of nuclear power plants being built in China

500: The number of coal-fired power plants China plans to build in the next decade

97: New airports to be built in the next 12 years, bringing the total number to 244 by 2020

160: Cities in China with populations that exceed a million. In the USA there are nine; in the UK just two

0: Miles of motorway in 1988

30,000: Miles of motorway today

6.3 million: The number of passenger cars registered in 2007 (compared with 2.3 million in 2004). More than 1,000 new private cars hit the roads every day in Beijing alone.

China knows all Americans with correct and compassionate thoughts will be glad to sacrifice for them.
