I am concerned that the huge increase in CO2 emissions in China from burning the massive deposits of coal reserves from this country will have a disastrous effect on the already alarming increase in heat producing carbon emissions that has occurred exponentially over the last 40 years and more.

Please study the impact of further locking the developing world into emission levels that might guarantee climate disruption and the catastrophic effects on our weather, our oceans, sea levels, glaciers, the arctic regions .. all life as we know it on the planet.
