Earthly Emissions

Fire of Liberty

Diana Furchtgott-Roth has a good op/ed piece in the NY Sun which points out that one of the major contributors to the global warming phenomenon is the fires that are currently burning within the various coal mines in China and India. Even more, these fires are belching out some 560 to 1,120 million metric tons of CO2 or some 50% to 100% of US emissions. Maybe the politicians who are calling for carbon taxes, expensive caps, and greater regulations on our cars and lives should take some time and look at such facts. One can guess from RFK Jr's antics that the folks at Live Earth weren't given such information.
