Proof, if any more were necessary, that each of the world’s governments is entirely in thrall to established and hyper-wealthy industrialists. Carbon emissions from the manufacture of goods for export, and presumably also from the process of exporting, are not included in the internationally reported league tables. Similarly, any goods imported have no reported carbon footprint, because they were manufactured abroad.
So goods that cross borders don’t exist. There is no international trade, no inter-country commerce.
“From this basic premise it is very simple to prove that […]banks are also the product of a deranged imagination.” – Douglas Adams
