According to the 2017 BP Statistical Review of World Energy, since 2005 annual U.S. carbon dioxide emissions have declined by 758 million metric tons. That is by far the largest decline of any country in the world over that timespan and is nearly as large as the 770 million metric ton decline for the entire European Union.


By comparison, the second largest decline during that period was registered by the United Kingdom, which reported a 170 million metric ton decline. At the same time, China's carbon dioxide emissions grew by 3 billion metric tons, and India's grew by 1 billion metric tons.

Yes, The U.S. Leads All Countries In Reducing Carbon Emissions

THIS is why we dumped the useless Paris Climate Accord scam. We were already doing our part, while those most vociferous critics from Canada, France, Germany, and China increased their pollution. Also, I don't believe ANYONE has contributed any money to the fund.

Now Mother Jones has and alternate view, so I guess you have to take everything with a grain of salt. So who is right?

So the United States of Europe is still leading the United States of America in reducing carbon emissions.
Best to compare apples with apples.

and from your link is still the 2nd biggest contributor by a long way - india - 3-4x pop of the US yet produces 1/3 of the CO2.

CO2 isn't really the issue anyway its all the other crap we are polluting the atmosphere with


edit to add: just had a quick look at hubbard link and i think this is the point she is making although she does it dishonestly.

Meaning ?

The US and Europe are roughly the same size with Europe having the larger population , bigger population = more emissions to service that population.

I'm sure American emissions will fall as that clean coal Trumps digging comes on stream.

Thats not even the point of the thread. The US is on a downward trend while those whiners i mentioned are trending up. Coal will be used by China and India.
Not the US.

The US is the biggest economy. What do you expect? If we stopped importing crap and used our own stuff then the world economy would go boom. Not godd for anybody.


My point is the hypocrisy by the individual states i mentioned.

Maybe as the much vaulted richest country you could use more green energy and pollute less in general but NO you can't expect americans to actually pay more for their energy, while at the same time laughing at europeans who choose to pay more for cleaner energy.

Many of us actually look for the least polluting energy suppliers, not the cheapest but i guess it depends on your priorities - money or quality of environment.

Until we as humanity move away from the worship of money as the be all and end all we will continue killing this beautiful planet we call home. I expect when we do spill out and infect/trash the rest of the universe it will be because we have made this place mainly uninhabitable.

Funny enough, the EU already pollutes less than the USA and has got more people. should have mentioned that. It's more difficult to cut on your pollution when you're already polluting much less.

Weeelll, let me think. With all these brush fires the US has been having these past weeks ,the smoke from those just used all your carbon credits for the next twenty years. Figure those into your equations.

Ahhh deflect deflect. You pathetic euros are still infatuated with diesel cars. Maybe Trump was right to put tariffs on your crap. And i guess you havent seen the news and all the wildfires in europe.

How is the US on a downward trend ?
As far as I was aware your economy is doing well , high employment and lower taxes ,#MAGA and all that.
Is that not true ?

As far as I'm concerned Trump walked away from the Paris deal because it will free up his friends to use more fossil fuels and make more money for themselves all the while putting more pollutants into your atmosphere for you to consume , pointing the finger at other nations who separately are doing more than you is just obfuscation on his part.

Are you thick or something? Downward as in pollution is going down. The rest of your nonsense is refuted in the links you didnt read.

Spoken like a true Trumper


If you weren't so obtuse in your postings perhaps your meaning would be easier to understand.


Perhaps the populations of those whiners you mentioned are trending up because they are the ones who are accepting imigrants.

Spoken like a person who thinks europe is all talk no action. Read my last line of the OP.
And this trend started in 2005.


Reply sounds like a true remainer.

Perhaps that was the reason for the accord? To help other countries catch up with the usa? I am sure that other countries did put money in some form.

Good point but i believe a certain amount of forest fires is healthy and that fossil fuel emissions are a separate issue.
