Anything that derails Copenhagen is good. The Chinese are the world’s worst polluters and the biggest emitter of Carbon Dioxide. The first record is bad but the second record  is good. Burning fossil fuels recycles ancient Carbon Dioxide back into the atmosphere.  Think of it it as putting plant food into the sky. It won’t have any discernible impact on global temperature but it will improve agricultural productivity. Contra Mann, of hockey stick fame, all the carbon in fossil fuels was once in the atmosphere. Putting some of it back is better for life on earth and humanity. Let’s just do it without adding real pollutants.
