    People in China are also fed a steady diet of carbon dioxide pollution from coal-powered electricity generation.


    People in the USA are fed a steady diet of bullsh*te (by people like you) that carbon dioxide pollution is really good for them, but people in Argentina, France, Spain, Italy and India are not.

    The photograph you so blithely imply as an illustration of
    carbon dioxide pollution is all the other crap from coal that
    China isn't taking care of. Gina McCarthy may tell us carbon
    dioxide is pollution but it isn't.

    Fine, Steve, just cheaply separate the carbon dioxide from what you call "the other crap" and we are all happy.

    Trouble is, the fossil fuel industry won't even do that.

    Choice between what? Corporate misinformation and corporate agitation? The Koch brothers are using Fox News employees as campaigners.
