The Trump Administration’s America First agenda has created an economic resurgence while also leading the world in CO2 emissions reductions, proving pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord was the right move.
Confirmed by independent international sources, the U.S. attained its 2019 CO2 emission reduction goals while other Climate Accord signatories saw horrific increases. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reported that “80 percent of the increase in CO2 emissions came from Asia and that China and India both contributed significantly” to worldwide escalations in this type of pollution.
Although it is unlikely the data will be a substantial part of the fake news cycle in the U.S., the IEA data demonstrates the effectiveness of American businesses, citizens, and government policies to curb CO2 emissions.
“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 percent, to 4.8 Gt,” the IEA recently reported. “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. A 15 percent reduction in the use of coal for power generation underpinned the decline in overall US emissions in 2019.”
What is particularly remarkable about the U.S. hitting its goal in 2019 is that the country has enjoyed a resurgence in a wide range of industries, including manufacturing. Liberal zealots have been falsely accusing the administration of dangerously increasing carbon into the atmosphere by removing the Obama-era regulations that had suppressed many industries.
The Trump Administration has also rolled back some of the more extreme anti-business and anti-agriculture regulations in an effort to get people back to work and the economy back on track. Despite all the fake outrage, America leads.
“FACT you will NEVER see on the 6 o’clock news: U.S. emissions FELL 2.9 percent, or by 140 million tons, continuing the trend of the United States LEADING THE WORLD IN TOTAL EMISSIONS DECLINE since 2000,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz tweeted.
Climate change cultists Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg have repeatedly targeted the U.S. as a leading cause of climate change.
“The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” AOC said.
Thunberg tried to scold U.S. lawmakers on the issue but was roundly educated about global realities by a Louisiana Congressman.
“For every one ton of carbon emissions we produce in the United States,” Rep. Garret Graves said. “China has increased by 4 tons, more than offsetting all the reductions that we have had in the United States.”
Despite the end-of-the-world prophesies these left-wing influencers push, both have earned a notorious reputation for contributing to the issue by taking numerous airline flights. Over the last two years, only the EU, Japan, and U.S. have reduced emissions. The rest of the world has radically increased such pollutants, according to the IEA. Still, even this seemingly neutral agency went out of its way to excuse China for its grotesque emission negligence.
“In China, emissions rose but were tempered by slower economic growth and higher output from low-carbon sources of electricity,” the IEA reportedly stated. “Renewables continued to expand in China, and 2019 was also the first full year of operation for seven large-scale nuclear reactors in the country.”
The phony partisan politics narrative by world liberals also targets Americans, who have proven time and time again to be the world’s top environmental leaders.
“Moral of the story: There has never been any evidence that climate change is a top concern for most Americans. This is not a crowd-pleaser or a vote-getter,” left-wing Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise reportedly wrote about a Pew Research study. “Should it be a ‘top priority’ for the President and Congress this year? Should it be a lower priority? Is it unimportant? Does it deserve no attention at all?”
It may be worthwhile for “reporters” and advocates for other nations to look to their own leadership. Canada has not met its Paris Climate Accord goals and saw the emissions gap increase in 2019, again.
