Driving force of Chinese smog

This is clearly just the start of this sort of statement. I heard a US official yesterday saying that it wasn't right to stop emerging countries from doing all the things that the so-called 1st world countries did in the past. There's a huge hole in this logic and I hope people wake up to it before it's too late. When we were developing (and polluting), there were so few car in America, Japan & Europe compared to what is coming on-line (on the roads) with China and India starting their motors. Also, we weren't nearly as aware of the dire consequences of our actions. Of course, all of us wish we would have developed a gas alternative sooner, but we ALL have to start now. This planet will not withstand the onslaught of a doubling or tripling of the exhaust fumes that we currently emit.
