Innumerate, Gore-trained UN climate hoax chief Christiana Figueres: Why can't the US be more like China, which only increased its CO2 emissions by 171% since the year 2000?

America’s Position on Climate ‘A Tragedy,’ Losing U.S. Prestige to China - ABC News

Here is how Christiana Figueres, the executive secretary of the U..N Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which holds this annual global climate conference, put it to ABC news today here:

“The tragedy of the position that the U.S. is taking is that not only does it act here in a way that is not particularly ambitious, but the more tragic part about it is the U.S. is cutting off its possibilities to be a leader in this field, to be a leader in green technology [and thus] to create jobs. … The U.S. is losing leadership to China.”

On pure emissions alone, the key points are:

China emits more CO2 than the US and Canada put together - up by 171% since the year 2000
• The US has had declining CO2 for two years running, the last time the US had declining CO2 for 3 years running was in the 1980s
