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.
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.
Funny how apples to apples didnt work the other way round.
The US is on a downward trend while those whiners i mentioned are trending up.
Are you thick or something?
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.

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.
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.
