USA Today reports today that China has become the world's top industrial source of carbon dioxide. But you'd think the newspaper had dragged over their crime reporter to do the write-up, considering the headline: "China Now No. 1 CO2 Offender." More:

China has overtaken the USA to become the world's No. 1 industrial source of carbon dioxide, the most important global-warming pollutant, according to a scientific study to be published today….

Unless China sharply cuts its emissions, "the situation is pretty bleak," says Richard Carson of the University of California, co-author of a study in today's Journal of Environmental Economics and Management. "There's a lot less time to do something than people previously thought."

Clearly this perpetrator needs to be found, read his rights, and then have the book thrown at him. He's become addicted.
