I always appreciate when people make this comparison, the relative weight of Chinese and oil imports in the US trade balance, that there's hardly a word about how one of the things driving up the cost of US energy imports is new demand from China.

Production in China is much more energy intensive than in the United States, and that's before you look at the cost of shipping products 10,000 miles to market.......
