'CARBON CAPS' CAN BE USED TO LITERALLY SUFFOCATE ANY COUNTRY INTO ECONOMIC DEATH

The whole question of "carbon-capping" countries may rest on a quasi-scientific belief that (1) there is a definite trend of global warming, that (2)global warming is bad for humanity, and  (3)that it is human industrial and transport activity that is responsible for this warming.

But, such a framework is incomplete when out of the blue comes the notion that (1) countries currently producing less carbon emissions should be rewarded with economic credits, and (2) countries currently producing more carbon emissions should be slapped with carbon penalties.

Notice that the proponents of Carbon Caps avoid the use of the word "debit" in contraposition to their "credits".  Instead, they use the word "penalty".  Because, the very concept of carbon "debits" will logically lead to the question as to what past, not just present or future debits, any country has.  And this leads logically to an accounting of what they themselves owe the world due to their past horrendously inefficient industrial and transport activities, which accounted for the bulk of the present carbon excess and therefore of global warming and its costs of remedy.

In all fairness, one should think that not just rich and poor, but past and present, contributions to carbon emissions, should have an economic value assigned to it.  In that event, before the developing countries have to stop or reduce their industrialization and transportation development, the developed countries as a whole would need to shut down their factories and garage their cars for a few decades, to make up for all the Carbon Sins or Deficits in the past 200 years.

Now, if they are willing to do so, i.e., shut down their own industries and transportation systems to the barest minimum, and transfer their otherwise to be allotted credits to the developing countries so that they can catch up in productivity, and thus in their standards of living, then we can say, the playing field is now level, and a period of Pax Ex-Carbonata may now supervene.

He is not only being rude, but is also unprincipled! He'll sell his soul to the highest bidder for that!

THE BIOLOGICAL ANALOGUE OF "CARBON CAPPING" A COUNTRY IS SUFFOCATION.

We all know that Carbon Dioxide is a by-product of biological respiration, or the use of Oxygen to do work, chemical, physical or electrical work, in a biological organism.

When you "Carbon Cap" a country, it is equivalent to preventing an organism from exhaling any carbon dioxide into the surrounding air, unless he has an expensive carbon removal device attached to his nose and mouth.  Since most poor or developing countries cannot afford a carbon removal device of such size as to cover their needed industrial or transport output, they are left with only the option of breathing less, in volume and frequency.

When they "punish" a carbon emitting country that cannot cap its carbon emissions, they are forcing equivalently an organism to do more inefficient work, without the benefit of industrialization and modern transport, which uses up its oxygen (in the form of natural resources and agricultural production) even more inefficiently, which leads therefore to the death of the organism by asphyxiation.

So, one has to wonder if the movement to "Carbon Cap" developing countries, without the previously industrialized or developed countries having to pay up first their "Carbon Debits" is not really a means to suffocate the developing countries, leading to their starvation or death by internal anarchy that follows starvation (just as a starving organism will use up its own proteins just to survive).  If so, far from being an earth-loving movement, or a mankind-saving solution, it might just be another variation of "Earth is an Easter Island" policy, resorting to political cannibalism couched in scientific and humanitarian terms.

'CARBON CAPS' CAN BE USED TO LITERALLY SUFFOCATE ANY COUNTRY INTO ECONOMIC DEATH

This is a very precise statement on the actual intentions of the already developed countries on the use of  "Carbon Caps". The developing countries would have their minerial wealth locked in for the future use of the developed countries.
