releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, united states or china? >> it's a neck-and-neck race. you know, and i think it is helpful to think about the distinction there. you know, if you're talking about the accumulated greenhouse gases, which is what really leads to global warming, it's the united states and europe. you know, we got a head start in all this industrialization. we've been using coal and natural gas for many years now. so, you know, we're the biggest contributors there. per-person basis, you know, americans really are using the energy. we're using... 80% of our energy comes from fossil fuel. but in terms of the total emissions, because china is so huge, because they are building coal plants, because they are getting cars, because they are industrializing, they are now the biggest emitter of global warming emissions in the world. so, you know, depending on how you look at it, there's plenty of guilt there. >> moyers: you say in here that there are six reasons we have to act soon. what are the six reasons? >> number one is that the united states needs more energy. the p

more troops from the north are infiltrating into the country, now with weapons from china and the soviet union. just a week after his inauguration the president receives a memo from his secretary defense and his national security advisor, we have reached the fork in the road, they say, "the time has come for harder choices." they recommend more military force. wanting more information and time, the president sends bundy to vietnam for a personal review. while he's there, vietcong guerillas attack a military barracks in pleiku, killing eight americans and wounding scores of others. as l.b.j. orders immediate air strikes against a handful of targets in the north vietnam, bundy reviews the damage at pleiku. >> before leaving for home, mr. bundy flew to the 8th field hospital to visit the men wounded in the guerilla attack. 108 men were wounded, 79 of them seriously. >> moyers: bundy is stunned by the blood and suffering, and on the way home he writes the president that "without new u.s. action defeat appears inevitable." on february 10, he calls the president with more bad news. >> m

weekly to countries like china and syria, and you name it, bangladesh, sri lanka, complaining about violations of human rights. so i've been involved in this business for the last 15 years or so, and it seemed to me that being jewish was no reason to treat israel exceptionally, and to say because i'm jewish, it's all right for me to investigate everybody else, but not israel. >> moyers: but you... you know, you have so many ties to israel. you were on the board, i understand, of hebrew university. >> i still am. that's correct. >> moyers: and that's not... you still are then. i mean, you had to know you were going to antagonize a lot of your friends. >> that's correct, but i've also got the support of many of my friends. you know, it's something that goes both ways, but antagonizing friends was inevitable. not only in respect of this investigation, but in respect of previous investigations. >> moyers: your report, as you know, basically accuses israel of waging war on the entire population of gaza. >> that's correct. >> moyers: i mean, there are allegations in here, some very tough

. you know, when we have france, and we have the developing world, and china and india, telling the united states that what we're what we're negotiating on-- which is the waxman-markey bill-- is not strong enough. that means that we're not leading the world. we're still following behind. >> moyers: give me a simple summary of what you think is wrong with this bill. >> there's a number of things. but the big ones are, one, the bill doesn't reduce global warming emissions in the united states fast enough. and the emission reduction targets are just inadequate. particularly if we're trying to be a global leader. two, it strips away the e.p.a.'s authority under the clean air act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. >> moyers: the environmental protection agency. >> the environmental protection agency, which is a key tool that environmentalists have been using to shut down coal plants. three, it gives away a tremendous amount of money, hundreds of billions of dollars to the polluting industries that have, essentially, caused the problem of global warming. the duke energies, shells, cono
