Skip to comments.US CO2 Emissions Plummet [semi-satire]

U.S. greenhouse gas emissions fell 2.7% during the first year of the Trump Administration. At the same time, global greenhouse emissions rose. In the European Union these emissions rose by 1.5%. In France they rose by 2%. Emissions in China and India are also believed to have risen by even larger amounts, but these countries are exempt under the Paris Accord and do not have to keep statistics on air quality.
Rather than appreciating Americas progress, environmental interest groups have been critical. Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune refused to credit the Trump Administration for any of the US emission reductions because not only has Mr. Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Accord, he openly voices his skepticism on global warming. Regardless of the on-the-ground positive results, clearly his head is not in the right place. That is why were telling everyone to vote Democrat in the upcoming elections. We simply must get right-thinking people into positions of power if we hope to reverse the economic growth that is destroying the planet. Only when the vast majority of humanity is forced to lead a simpler lifestyle free from modern conveniences and long lives can we succeed in removing the human virus infects nature.
EPA acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler, in contrast, lauded the emissions progress made last year. The main point of improving the environment is to make the Earth a better place for humans and other life forms, Wheeler argued. Rational approaches that can generate cleaner air and more prosperity are the kind of win-win situations that will enjoy a broad base of support from the American people. The evidence shows that so far, we are on the right track.

Obviously, Mr. Brune is critical of the opinions of the Trump administration as it goes against everything he is proclaiming. The Sierra Club would have everyone shooting themselves in the foot for no good reason. The evidence is right in front of them & they either can’t or won’t see it. I find it hard to believe that any thinking person would buy into this “human caused climate change” business. Why do they think humans were created and put on earth?
Good one again John. Enjoyed.
