    Given everything else I've said on this thread, it's understandable that the Chinese would object to parallel rules given that the baseline for different countries' carbon quotas would be 1990, because of the huge industrial growth China has experienced since then.

    As a concession to help justify the adoption of parallel rules, the methodology for each setting each country's quota of carbon emissions could somewhat reflect Chinese interests by, for instance, reflecting China's population as a total percentage of the world.

    I think that meets a basic test of equity that we want these rules to reflect.
