I was reading an article on the BBC earlier about China talking about Climate change, and how the Chinese are currently following a policy of reducing the intensity of carbon emissions per dollar of GDP. And from the article we get the following: Actually although I don't want to accept Bush had a good idea () I kinda like the idea. What I think is great about carbon intensity is that you can get developing nations and developed nations to sign up for the same target, which is fair, and you'll still allow developing countries to grow and give them a target to meet. Of course a disadvantage is that it doesn't force emissions to be cut, but if the target was strict enough that should happen overall anyway? So what are everyone's thoughts?
