Rich nations blamed for global warming, but not for all the right reasons

As forecast, China has overtaken the U.S. in carbon-dioxide emissions due largely to China’s heavy reliance on coal. Another factor is its well-publicized population of 1.3 billion. But per-capita emissions are much higher in developed countries, where populations are exploding due to immigration. The U.S. already releases four times the carbon per-capita each year as China. And the U.S. population, which has been doubling every 40 years, is headed for one billion by the end of this century!

Population growth cited as key driver of climate change

Controlling population growth is a crucial factor in reducing global warming, a California group says, and America had better get a grip. Americans are already the most voracious consumers and greatest producers of greenhouse gases per capita of any nation on earth, it said, and its population “has been doubling every 40 years and is headed for one billion before the end of this century.”
