Dying to save the planet

in response to reader comment: Dear Mr. Pipes

If President Trump is responsible for 200,000 deaths in the USA, then prime minister Modi is responsible for about 120,000 deaths in India. And counting. Have you complained to him about that?

"The Americans are world's greatest polluters and the more these people die the better it is for the planet."

The air in India is all but unbreathable. Like living in a smokehouse. I've been other places that were pretty bad but none as bad as India. Not to mention polluted water and trash everywhere. Very different from how it is here in the USA among the "world's greatest polluters." My lungs and throat always celebrate when I leave Indian airspace. But I don't wish death upon Indians for the planet or for any other reason. That's a basic difference between you and me.

Democratic systems being so bad, when do you plan to leave the one you live in? This week? Next week?

Right, the world needs a big prison camp like North Korea as a strong counterbalance to free countries and free elections. Conveniently, your and Kim Jong-un's opinions concerning the value of human life coincide perfectly.
