lKrugman the Atlanticist seems to be dangerously playing the eco-card, in order to come up with new ways to constrain rising powers like China. He wants to impose eco-taxes on countries that don't meet his environmental standards. This would inevitably be extended to India and anyone else, too. The Atlanticists seem to want the poor Asians to starve, so that they can keep their jacuzzis and air-conditioning running full blast. Krugman seems to be angling for a North-South conflict.
