Embodied Energy and Exports

  1. ONe quarter of World Wide Emissions are due to imports and exports
  2. Same percentage for China
  3. If the US carbon dioxide were done on a net basis, our emissions would be eleven percent higher than our current rate

Story argues that carbon dioxide should be applied to imports and exports, something I have argued here in the sortition-based badness tax. (Suprisingly , China and India argued vociferously for this at Copenhagen.)
