China for a day: How much CO2-induced bad weather was prevented by forcibly aborting this woman's baby?

Outrage After Grisly Photo Of Chinese Woman Forced To Abort In Seventh Month

Feng told a Caixin reporter that she was forced into the abortion because she can’t afford the 40,000 RMB ($6,300) penalty imposed by the local family planning department....Feng Jianmei said that on June 2 more than 20 staff from the town’s family planning department came to her home and arrested her. On the way to the hospital, as she resisted, she said she was beaten by the authorities.

During the injection, lethal to the fetus, none of her family was allowed to be present. When her father-in-law heard the news and rushed to the hospital he was prevented from entering the obstetrics ward.

...However, Li also admitted that in his town the family planning department’s target of implementing the one-child policy – set at 95% - has not been achieved for two consecutive years, and there is consequently particular emphasis this year on enforcement of government policy.

According to the IEA, global emissions last year climbed 3.2%. I believe that corresponds to the annual emission of Germany – roundabout.

The most effective climate policy of the last decade was the 1-child policy in China which saved the world from approx. 400 million emitters and emitter-reproducers.”
