EU has already committed on co2-cuts, signed the Kyoto treaty etc. EU's economy is 30% larger than the U.S., so maybe you should start to be reasonable and do what every other Western nation does. But no, Americans reduce the debate on these idiotic false dichotomies, it's either Stone Age or the American dream. Also, the European Union is not seeing their economies collapins (well, apart from the global depression created by Americans). In fact, EU is a leader in "green tech" thanks to this regulation.
