It's only possible to do one thing at a time and you have to choose now: remove the broader financial incentivization for environmental destruction to effectively address the issue in a way that can't just be shifted across a border or invade china
I'm well aware of the propaganda but you can repeat it a few more times if you want.

Nice strawman. I clearly said earlier that the U.S. and other countries need to change too. Maybe you just can't read?

They won't, but the EU and India and others could always buy more if the U.S. empire took a nosedive. Their consumption rates are going up after all.

Oh and Frown...learn to code bro. You clearly can't read.

At the same time, the U.S., EU and India should change their consumption practices to accelerate that process.

It is surprisingly satisfying to win in a 2vs1 situation like this.

We could invade China, but it won't solve climate change. I'm glad you remembered that joke though.
