Explain yourselves liberals. Why do you preach the opposite of what you do? Why are you such nasty little grubs?

And given China has now taken over the US for biggest polluter, it isn't the West (excluding the US) who need to address this issue but those who aren't looking for an alternative to carbon fuels.

We can't all live on self-sustaining farms. Sorry, but those days are long gone.
FFS, at least go read up about it before ranting on like a moron. You do know that people of all ideologies live in cities, right?

Igor Antunov wrote:Carbon Dioxide is only one part of the puzzle. Rural area per capita co2 emissions are skewed by primary production and industrial zones-which are geared to feed urban liberals and provide them with consumer goods. A farming family is producing more co2 per capita because it is living with 500 cows and 5 tractors and feeding 1,000 others.
City slickers consume far more resources per capita and produce far more waste. Why such grubs?

The cost of disposal is cheaper per person due to mass collection, so it's cheaper to transport the trash per individual, therefore resulting in a lower carbon footprint per person overall.
Watch any documentary on New York City's Trash problem and it will tell you that.
Of course living in the country forces you to use more petrol, and your trash collection service, as well as other important amenities, is going to cost the local government more per person.
This is when you do not include the resources used as part of a person's job, which for farming is far more intensive. And so you are right when that is taken into account.
People living in the country are also more likely to use solar power(mainly for their home),
and have their own water filtration systems. So personally they will rely less on external supply for their home, while using more if supply for farming is taken into account.
It also generally costs more to live in cities regardless. Real estate is of course cheaper in the country and always will be.

I personally believe it is unfair to scapegoat people based upon their job.
Obviously farming uses more resources. But that is related to the job. I already explained my position to you.

Even if we ignore the whole farming job, you are still wrong.
