I quote Jon:
- The United States has been cutting CO2 emissions. Anyone only familiar with the apocalyptic rhetoric from media, politicians, academics, and environmentalists would think otherwise.
- Not only that, but the U.S. has been the world leader in cutting CO2 emissions, and we have been for nearly two decades. According to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2022, the U.S. since 2005 has reduced the volume of its CO2 emissions by over a billion tons (1,015 million tons).
- Not only that, but no other country even comes close to the U.S. in cutting CO2 emissions. The combined nations comprising the European Union come closest, reducing their combined CO2 emissions by 978.3 million tons.
- Not only that, but the rest of the world has continued to increase CO2 emissions. Emissions across Africa (351.4 million tons), the Middle East (956.0), and South and Central America (148.3) have all increased.
- Not only that, but those higher-emissions continents are adding a fraction of the increased volume of CO2emissions by China and India. Since 2005, per BP, China’s volume of CO2 emissions has increased by 5,177.8 million tons. India’s CO2 emissions increased by 1,478.5 million tons.
