I think it was Dr. James Hansen (formerly of NASA, and a real Climate Scientist) that covered China and India best. He pointed out that Carbon Dioxide spends 100 years in the atmosphere - on average. That as recently as ten years ago Canada was #4 on the list of all time emitters - total emissions. Out of every country in the world. And that China would need to keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere at the same rate for 30 years (now 20) if it even hoped to catch up to the biggest contributors to the problem - the USA, Great Britain, Germany, and to pass #4, Canada. India was going to need 40 years if I recall the chart correctly.
