Ironic thing is our production technology is generally much cleaner than theirs. Any incentive we give to further push industrial production to Asia hurts more than it helps.
When it comes to livelihoods and jobs you have to be at least somewhat pragmatic about this stuff. Utopia doesn't exist, and global CO2 emissions aren't going to decline by order of federal legislation.
This is a global problem and will require a global solution.
You should be pissed that the emissions of others are going to continue to impact us, and get worse.
What are you doing about it? Nothing. Why?
If the Chinese were flinging their **** over the Pacific at us, you'd react. Instead, you're just throwing up your hands and doing nothing.
