Reducing CO2 Emissions
#1
So take a guess which country achieved the greatest reductions?

Report: U.S. Led All Countries in Reducing CO2 Emissions in 2019
Despite being the scourge of the globalist community for daring to leave the Paris Climate Accord, the U.S. appears to be leading the way in reducing its "carbon footprint."

According to a report released on Tuesday by the International Energy Agency (IEA), "The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis."

But, but...what about climate alarmist Greta Thunberg's outrage over countries not doing enough about climate change to make her existence a happy one? I only have one thing to say to that. How dare you?!
Here's what the IEA had to say about the science of the U.S. reduction in carbon emissions:


Quote:...a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt. 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% reduction in the use of coal for power generation underpinned the decline in overall US emissions in 2019. Coal-fired power plants faced even stronger competition from natural gas-fired generation, with benchmark gas prices an average of 45% lower than 2018 levels. As a result, gas increased its share in electricity generation to a record high of 37%. Overall electricity demand declined because demand for air-conditioning and heating was lower as a result of milder summer and winter weather.

But how could A/C demand go down when temperatures are marching inexorably upward year by year?

Ah yes!

Either:

a) They're not "marching inexorably upward year by year"

or

b) More efficient A/C

and guess what I found last night:

A UK temperature series :

Central England’s hottest January was 1916, followed by 1921, 1796 and 1834.

Of course I was being sarcastic.

We got a "carbon tax" hoisted on us a couple of years ago. The "tax" part they got right, it just doesn't do anything to reduce carbon usage.

Yeah I got it.

While I had heard most parts of this video here and there, this is a very nice synopsis of the entire story in one video. Thanks.
