    Using the replacement IHDI doesn't make a lot of difference, except that many smaller countries and Middle Eastern states aren't included. Feel free to produce your own plot using a different metric. I doubt you'll see anything different.

    Always use best metrics in contentious politics - less crow to eat later. And be extremely leery of metrics that can be interpreted as self-serving - and heavily leftist. Not saying it is but 'you have a high SL, stop it' does not play well long term.

    But not my actual 'not doing enough to mitigate it' argument.
    That's not what you were arguing as I recall - at least not what you stated.

    It's also a separate question, definitely political and maybe impossible to prove.

    I'm not Danish, so I don't know why you mention this.That just makes your dislike of per capita measurements even more unjustifiable.
    Shakespeare, silly! And I love per capita - there are thousands of applications where it is unquestionably the best metric. All I'm saying is the application to CO2 is going to be a long term self-defeating strategy.

    What ulterior motives? Climate scientists aren't exactly getting rich. And do you think those who decry ACC don't have ulterior motives? That coal, oil and car companies don't to avoid reducing their profits? That people don't want to avoid paying more for power or transportation? Such naïveté.
    Globalism (I didn't say scientists - I treated them separately), authoritarianism and socialism - an attempt to shift political power from the people to government. Obviously more complex than that and ACC is a new toy in an old arsenal.

    Sure, there are agendas all the way around - but you're about ten years behind. Those particular examples are boogeymen at this point - only large energy companies can afford the infrastructural shift and they're now largely behind ACC - beady eyes glistening and hands rubbing at all those subsidy dollars.

    The fact is, you're being far more naive than I.

    Anywho, it's Thanksgiving here and I'm about to go kill myself moping the whole house - it's a Southern girl thing!

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Most people contemplating that just find a corner....

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Neat! Another fan of Shakespeare.
    Glendower: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
    Hotspur: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
    But will they come when you do call for them? Shakespeare’s Henry IV, Part 1, Act III:

    go with the flow the river knows . . .

    I do not know, therefore everything is in pencil.
