    Pelosi appeals for China's help on climate change

    In answering a question from a student about how Pelosi was going to get Americans to cut back on their carbon emissions, the leading Democratic lawmaker said it was important to educate children on how to conserve energy and for citizens to build more environmentally friendly homes.
    "We have so much room for improvement," she said. "Every aspect of our lives must be subjected to an inventory ... of how we are taking responsibility."
    Personal Liberty? Freedom? Oh wait, those are OLD ideas that lead to teh "wrong" choices, people like Nancy P, she's got the answers, and we should obey the Government to provide:

    "I do see this opportunity for climate change to be ... a game-changer," she said at Tsinghua. "It's a place where human rights looking out for the needs of the poor in terms of climate change and healthy environment are a human right."

    My personal liberty and freedom includes the right to breathe clean air. If Pelosi is making inroads with China to improve the environment, what is your freaking problem with that?

    It makes sense logically to get China on board otherwise it would make little difference.

    China will only do what benefits China, nothing more.

    And who is going to subject our lives to this inventory? Hmmm?

    If you think China is gonna listen to Nancy P you're fooling yourself.

    I have a big problem with Pelosi saying that every aspect of our lives should be subject to inventory. I think anyone who values freedom would have a big problem with the government saying that, esp. someone as power-hungry as Pelosi.

    There are ways to keep pollution down without the gov't going to such extremes ("every aspect" - yikes).

    OMG you are hopeless. Pelosis is saying that the effort to improve the climate must include analysis of every aspect of our lives. She is not talking about taking away your guns. Relax.

    Re: Pelosi appeals for China's help on climate change

    Unlike the U.S., China lacks the ability to make sweeping environmental changes because it is still a developing nation. Even so, due to its huge population, I believe in some areas it is doing more than the U.S., out of simple survival necessity.

    The U.S. public does not feel the pressure of climate change yet because luxuries insulate them from that reality. Eventually it will catch up with them, and changes will have to be made.
