Poison Pero is RIGHT!

"The relationship between (shorter work and lower emissions) is complex and clearly understood, but it is understandable that lowering levels of consumption, holding everything else constant, would reduce greenhouse gas emissions...If the world were to follow a more European model of work, we would expect fewer hours, less output, and lower emissions of greenhouse gases."

"Less output" is the operative phrase in that statement.

The developing world doesn't want to become like Europe:  Lazy, unproductive, debt-ridden, degenerates...The developing world wants to become like the U.S.

Let me restate that, the developing world wants to become like the U.S. of the 19th and 20th Century.

There is only one country on Earth which wants "to follow a more European model," and that is the U.S. of today...Sadly, it is succeeding.
