Lord Nicholas Stern of Australia has warned that European and Far Eastern nations are likely to seek sanctions against U.S. exports by 2020 unless the U.S. takes more vigorous actions to cut its CO2 emissions.  Per capita, the US emits more than twice as much CO2 as the European Union and almost three times as much as China.
