The United States is the world leader in cutting CO2 emissions

February 16, 2020

  For years we have been listening to the left lecture us about CO2 emissions and the need for America to lead by example in the race to save the planet by lowering greenhouse gas emissions. 

  Recently Greta Thunberg asked Americans what we would tell our children when they asked why we did nothing to save the planet even though we were warned about the impending doom. Democrats constantly tell us that Republicans want dirty water and polluted air. Imagine my surprise then when I learned that America actually led the way in cutting greenhouse gasses in 2019. Here is more:

The United States led the world in tackling CO2 emissions last year while combining that singular success with solid economic growth, a new report reveals.

It has also been confirmed while the U.S. was hitting its climate goals, at the same time “80 percent of the increase in CO2 emissions came from Asia and that China and India both contributed significantly” to global increases.

“The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt,” the International Energy Agency (IEA) reported Tuesday. “US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.”

  Not only did the United States lead the world in cutting greenhouse emissions in 2019 but this is has been a trend since the year 2000. And while we are doing our part to save the world 80% of the increase in CO2  emissions has come from Asia. Somebody tell me again why the United States is being attacked for our role in destroying the planet while Asia gets a free pass if the global warming scare is really about saving the planet…

    But the question lingers: is America’s bovine population doing its part By cutting back on flatulence?
