It's not a question of deserving. Life on earth will become impossible if
Chinese were to consume at American, or even Western European, levels.
Cars, and the highways they ride on, are deadly. Life on earth will become
impossible if Americans and Western Europeans continue to consume at
present levels. This is not fashionable greenish sentiment, nor is it a
product of the decline of the workers' movement, it is a scientific fact,
and for a guy who loves science, you should admit this.
