Granted, you could have meant something entirely different.

What exactly DO you think we ought to do?

So, what you're saying is that China should be restricted to a bicycle/agrarian economy, and the US should use their share of wood, oil and coal. Makes sense.

The average American has a carbon footprint 10 times larger than the average Chinese person.

The US is mostly to blame. Should we go back to the 18th century so everyone else can advance? Of course not. That's the argument disingenuous people make against the Kyoto accords, that being forced to cap emissions would destroy the US economy. We should figure out a way to get the same goods and services without destroying the world. Obviously. Why to we burn coal (which produces CO2, unless you sequester it) when our energy needs can come from something that doesn't give off CO2? Waste Management (the company that deals with my garbage) has turned landfills into power plants by capturing Methane (a far worse greenhouse gas) and using it to generate power. Companies should be encouraged to figure out ways to fix the problem, instead of pretending it doesn't exist until the world is unlivable.

Global warming is happening, it's probably being enhanced by humans, and we might be able to do something about it.

How can we attack China if all of our military hardware is dependent apon Chinese parts to function?

Carbon Dioxide absorbes and reflects infrared radiation (read: heat). The more there is, the more heat emanating from the planet (either from the core, power plants, or sunlight being converted into heat) is retained. Carbon dioxide changes in the atmosphere any time there is a difference in ratio between release of carbon dioxide and carbon sequestration. Thus global warming. It happens all the time, true. But this time it is happening because human beings are causing it. To resolve the problem, we need only cut back on carbon dioxide release(stop burning fossil fuels) and increase carbon sequestration (stop killing trees and promote their growth). Human beings also respirate a significant portion of the carbon dioxide increase. However much killing half of the world's population would fix the problem, I don't advocate it.

Ad hominem is forbidden by Forum Guidelines. And it's just sad practice. Stop.
