The Worst Polluter Reponsible for Killing Chinese?

China under the communist regime has recently been promoted to become the number one carbon dioxide emitter in the world. Carbon dioxide has been blamed by scientists almost unanimously as a greenhouse gas responsible for recent global warming which has created ever more unstable climates.

An unprecedented tornado hitting Jiangsu today, an eastern province in China, killed at least 14 Chinese and injured about 150. Reportedly it had a wind speed of 100km/h. In recent weeks, China had been struck by floods and harsh weather killing hundreds of Chinese and destroying thousands of homes. One cannot help but to link these tragic natural disasters to global warming.

Is it time for the Chinese Communist Party to become more serious about preventing global warming, instead of blindly gearing all its policies towards a high rate of economic growth?
