RE: The Arctic and Antarctic ice caps are melting..
Willy, I generally agree with where you're going. IMO pollution works the same on as as it does bacteria on agar. Too much waste products and the bacteria die.
I don't doubt that the USA is the largest polluter. But is it the largest polluter per capita, per family, per taxpayer? Per unit area of the nation? Per some measure of wealth? Per some measure of agricultural productivity? etc, etc, etc.
What I mean is that comparing some bold number without context is at best, an incomplete story. At worst, it is misleading.
What country spends the most money on pollution remediation? I don't know, just asking.
