Our carbon footprint is the issue
RE: CHINA AND INDIA AREN’T ... (NOV. 1)
Carbon footprint is a measure of how much carbon dioxide is consumed in a country for each and every person. It is measured in metric tons per year per person. Carbon Foot Print (2013)
Canada — 13.5; USA — 16.4; China — 7.6; India — 1.6; Bangladesh — 0.4
For each Canadian that is equivalent to 29,700 lb of CO2. Is it not very racist to assume that each Canadian deserves to consume so much more than China, India or Bangladesh? North America has had much extreme weather this year as 97 per cent of climate scientists have predicted. Have Canadians and Americans become a Master Race that doesn’t have to concern itself with preventing climate change?
