You know that China is not only meeting it's climate change targets but beating them? It met it's 2020 targets three years ahead of schedule and it's on target to hit peak CO2 10 years earlier than predicted and that's despite being the manufacturers for the world.
Pollution is a byproduct of consumption and nothing is being done to curb that. It's laughable to complain about the pollution created in China for the production of goods consumed elsewhere. Who's pollution is it?
The story about how Greta can cross the Atlantic for a conference is a typical example, the question isn't how to travel, but if there's any need to do so. We live in a technological age with the ability to participate without being physically present.
