The Last Word

During the Copenhagen Climate Summit, China was criticized for not signing a pledge to reduce carbon emissions.  I don’t think China’s was ready to sign and had to go home to study the situation to see what they could do before they made a commitment.  All (take a look) of China’s politburo members, the top government body in China, are scientist or engineers.

On March 10, China told the United States to make stronger commitments on climate change and provide environmental expertise and financing to developing nations. That was a few days after China announced it was planning to reduce its carbon footprint by 40-45% (from 2005 levels) and generate 15% of its electricity from renewable technologies by 2020.

Obama, on the other hand, only pledged reducing green house gas emissions “in the range of 17%” by 2020. 

This is what I think happened after China’s representatives left Copenhagen.  Those scientists and engineers that make up China’s ruling body gathered facts, discovered what China could achieve, then formulated long-range goals. Most scientists and engineers think that way.

President Obama is a lawyer. Most of the elected representatives in America’s two houses of congress are lawyers.

Who’s Hacking Whom?

China rejects claims of Internet hacking attacks by Gillian Wong, Associated Press Writer.

Why is it that everything that happens in China is the government’s fault?  At least that’s how the Western media and politicians tell it. If the Chinese government is to blame for what every Chinese citizen does, then every senator, congressmen, Supreme Court justice and the president of the United States are responsible for everything happening in America.

China has every right to deny they are responsible. After all, where is the evidence? I always thought people were considered innocent until proven guilty. Shouldn’t governments have the same right. Isn’t that the foundation of American justice? China has a huge population using the Internet. Anyone could be doing this. How would you like to keep track of 1.3 billion people? Heck, the government of the United States can’t even control its people, and I know that China does not control their people as much as Westerners believe.

Here’s an example of what happens when Western Yellow journalism and politicians stir the pot. One Blogger Who Found Them Guilty Evidence that “simple” minds jump to conclusions based on propaganda, which is a two way street.
