    I think he has it basically right. Our urge is not a colonial or empire-building one, we are a moralistic busybody. SOmetimes right, and sometimes not as right, but it is our eagerness to give our opinion that turns off many - until there is a crisis. Then our phone rings.

    BTW - Since our greenhouse emissions have actually declined in the last decade, I do not understand his second point.
    On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

    I think he is looking more at the wrong people for that assumption. I have had some friends and acquaintances that have actually used that argument of China, even though I think it is a really weak reason. He might be more or less just using what he hears which is sad and is not really the over all consensus.
