The biosphere is broke, and the US isn't the only ones at fault. The
third world deforestation of north africa is THE most significant
environmental impact today, far more important to the climate than CO2
levels. When you can see from orbit the dust flowing from the Sahara to
South America, there is a significant problem there that needs fixing.
How come only American pollution needs fixing? Isn't that kinda racist?
