After US Exit From Paris Climate Accord, Guess Who’s Leading The World In CO2 Emission Reduction?

(Tea Party 247) – While the climate alarmists on the left would have you believe otherwise, President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords made positively zero negative impact on their relentless quest to save the world from impending doom.

This impending doom, as we’re constantly reminded, is due to carbon emissions, and the international pact to reduce carbon emissions that is the Paris Climate Accord must include the US or we’re all going to die.

“The fact that the U.S.A. is leaving the Paris accord seems to outrage and worry everyone, and it should,” teen climate activist Greta Thunberg said last month. “But the fact that we’re all about to fail the commitments you signed up for in the Paris Agreement doesn’t seem to bother the people in power even the least.”

There’s only one problem.

The opposite is happening.

A new report reveals that the US has reduced its CO2 emissions more than any other nation on the supposedly doomed planet.

“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%, to 4.8 Gt,” The International Energy Agency (IEA) said in the report released Tuesday, according to The Gateway Pundit. “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,” the IEA said. “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.”

On June 1, 2017, Trump announced that the United States would pull out of the Paris Agreement, which put a heavy financial burden on the U.S. and left some of the major carbon emitters off the hook. Some climate watchdogs claimed the pullout would lead to higher emissions, but it turns out the U.S.’s emissions dropped.

On the other hand, China and India emissions grew.

“In China, emissions rose but were tempered by slower economic growth and higher output from low-carbon sources of electricity,” the IEA reported. “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.”

“Emissions growth in India was moderate in 2019, with CO2 emissions from the power sector declining slightly as electricity demand was broadly stable and strong renewables growth prompted coal-fired electricity generation to fall for the first time since 1973,” the IEA concluded. “Continued growth in fossil-fuel demand in other sectors of the Indian economy, notably transport, offset the decline in the power sector. Emissions grew strongly in Southeast Asia, lifted by robust coal demand.”

  1. Dont be shocked by the chinese wearing face masks in public from the coronavirus… they were doing it before that due to toxic air and pollution. The worse thing EVER for the environment is to shift more production there and away from the green US and green UK production plants.

  2. I saw a little Great Thunberg this morning……..

    It was IMMEDIATELY following my morning constitutional……..

    I stood up after wiping, turned around, and reached to flush…….

    And saw little Greta, stinking up my toilet with her bullshit.

    I FLUSHED HER!

    Good riddance to bad odors and crappola.

  3. Everything humans use is either mined or grown! That said, remember it takes material from the earth to create windmills and solar panels. Batteries are used in all of the cars that run on electricity. Guess what the materials to make them are mined!

    As for climate change that has been happening since the beginning of time. Granted there is ice melt but as the axis of the earth changes that is bound to happen. Ice will then form in other locations on the earth as it has though out time. The axis changes due to volcanic activity and earthquakes. Those are all in Gods hands. Humans do play a role but a small one.

  4. According to scientific research the carbon dioxide levels are presently only 1/4 of what they should be! And anyone who’s graduated high school knows all plants need Co2 in order to survive!
    It’s really all about how Big DADDY government can deceive the sheeple of the world into submission and total control!
    “ORDO ABCAO”.
    ORDER OUT OF CHAOS!!!

  5. ” The SKY is falling, the SKY is falling” says Chicken Little! . . . oh, he’s NOT a Climate scientist? The Left Leaning Liberals SAY he is (or that LOONY Greta Thunberg). Any, it is NOT – It’s only a HOAX and a Lie. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  6. Liberal politicians are scaring everyone that the world is ending due to the global warming, blaming the industry. Liberal followers are fooled like a herd of sheeps, NOT REALIZING THAT ITS A WAY OF COLLECTING MORE MONEY FROM THE INDUSTRY TO MAKE A BIGGER GOVERNMENT AND MORE CONTROL. DUMB FOLLOWERS DON’T SEE THAT CONNECTION…..

  7. This is currently the era in which the US is taking on home grown hypocrites . . . AND, global hypocrites.
    Thank you President Trump for reflecting the strength of America’s silent majority.

  8. With what you stupid retarded demon-rats stand for you will loose, Fight and get this out,now,You stupid Democrats killed the water to hydrogen inventor why? I hope you know your damnation is in hell, Hillary said in 2005 ( that the average democrat voter is just plain stupid, they are so easy to manipulate, that’s the easy part ),It looks like Trump is an oil company stooge to selling us out, you stupid retarded Trump, The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, tell every one not buy a new car / truck, to boycott the auto company’s, when they can’t sell their pieces of junk low mileage vehicles, they will have to bring out water to hydrogen powered vehicles, and kits to change the vehicles now that we have, just think what our world would be like with free energy. a Porge vapor carburetor sitting in the patient office that gets around 200 mpg, Volkswagen diesel gets 264 mpg, The water to hydrogen auto inventor wouldn’t sell out to the demons from hell oil company’s so the Democrat gov. had him murdered with plutonium poisoning, we are getting ripped off by the oil company owned auto company’s Don’t you think it’s time to take our world back.Once free energy gets out all prices for every thing will drop.
    Also audit all the Senator’s and congressmen, they have wasted, and stole our money, make them repay all, and tax them.
    The economy will never get better, as long as free energy doesn’t come out, and all your dreams will fade away, so spread the word, stop buying new autos and trucks.

  9. Here is an article for you showing just how imminent and grave Climate change is: The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot”, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable. Washington Post, Published: November 2, 1922, 98 years ago.
    Same Scam…Different Century!

  10. I would guess that very, very few understand the science involved in climate studies, including all the politicians who jump on that bandwagon
    to propel them to positions of power, aided and abetted by news media
    that love bad news and “crises” to enhance their revenues. Taken together with scientists who are employed to study the climate phenomenon, plus those who teach about it in schools and Universities,
    also illuminati like Al Gore who proclaim (with poor English) the catastrophe for the world that carbon dioxide will cause, an indisputable
    and powerful lobby now exists, which very few dare question not to be
    labeled as fools, or worse as “deniers”. But what if carbon dioxide is really a climate threat? Are costly efforts to reduce it in the USA going to have much benefit? Of course not, as long as China and India the major generators of it are disinclined to harm their economies, which they are, and likely will continue to be.

    • I do hereby confess that the use of logic has been a bad habit with me!
      It is almost as if I can not help it.
      Please forgive me. It has brought me misery like, for instance, believing that all those wishing to replace Trump are nuts or, if not, they are either
      accomplished liars and/or believe the voters are completely ignorant.
      This makes me very, very worried about the future of our country.

  11. The USA is always expected to pay for the other countries unwillingness to follow the rules that they set!!!! NO MORE!!!

  12. Sure is refreshing to hear the other side of the story. If you are like me I rarely watch the nightly news any more. CNN became the Clinton New Network a long time ago. NBC touts the liberal line and mocks conservatives on Saturday Night Live. CBS does not seem quite as biased. ABC is flaming liberal. Since PBS is funded by tax money you are assured it will be biased and liberal in its reporting. I never opened an account on Facebook because I knew Mr. Zuckerberg was buddies with President Obama. The US Constitution begins with the phrase “We the people” but it seems these liberal news organizations are conspiring to bring more of the failed socialistic and communist policies that take away the rights and freedoms of the common man to the US. May God have mercy on us common people who have survived and are just trying to take care of our families and give our children hope in a deceitful world.

    • Watch one American news and Newsmax . You will get straight facts . They don’t take sides. Unlike the the fake news that push commie agenda.

  13. China and India are the biggest polluters now, not the USA. Thunberg attacks the US because her Marxist parents put her up to it. Capitalism bad, socialism good. Social democracy, which is what the Nordic countries have, depends on a healthy market economy to fund all of its freebie social programs and is by no definition truly socialist, which requires the complete absence of private enterprise (capitalism).

  14. I agree. I know we are the only country who pays to rebuild another country after a war. Also here scientists need to stop lying on cancer cure in order to keep their money. People are dying it has been many years that cancer has been in research and we know there is a cure🇦🇱

  15. Climate change is a cyclical event that we humans have not created or contributed to. Its egotistical to think that we can do anything about it. IT’S CYCLICAL AND ONE MAJOR REASON IS THE SUN’S SOLAR FLARES THAT INCREASE AND DECREASE. What will all the nutcase libs say when we enter another ice age??? And by the way. Trees emit oxygen and consume Co2. We breath a iui r and process the oxygen and breath out Co2. Planting trees is a good idea. Good job President Trump.

  16. Global warming is a hoax. What flooded the land bridge . What caused the glaciers to retreat from the US of A. There is more danger in the freaks who push the climate scare.

  17. JOIN US
    TRUMP 2020 AND BEYOND
    FOR A MUCH GREATER AMERICA

    NO democrat can or will give the American people this type of economy. It hasn’t happened in many,many,many years in fact it hasn’t happened under a democrat. The great society is a failure roosevelt was a failure, lbj was a failure, Carter was a laughable failure, clinton was definitely a failure and last but surely not least is the democrat god obama, A TOTAL FAILURE.
    NOW WE HAVE COMMUNISTS, SOCIALIST AND MORE FAILURES FROM THE democrat side TRYING TO GET INTO MY HOUSE.
    It ain’t gonna happen.
    The DO NOTHING congress HAS ALREADY LOST THE HOUSE.
    NO CHANGE OF GAINING THE SENATE.

    AND I’VE SAID IT B4 AND ILL KEEP REPEATING IT EVEN AFTER THE 2020 ELECTION.
    ” THERE’S NOT A democrat ALIVE THAT CAN BEAT OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP”.
    NOT HONESTLY THAT IS.

    • Some things that Americans better think about. Gerrymandering, hacked voting machines, dummied down youth, and enabling illegals to vote by issuing driver licenses. Think the traitors who want to destroy this country are done. Time to stop thinking that somebody will fix it when things get bad enough. That how the left raised their ugly head. If we lose Trump, the corrupt Government will only expand.

  18. It seems that no matter how great we do with cow2 emissions, the other countries are still killing the air that we are breathing. It sounds like China is on it’s way to improving their co2 output but India is questionable and may need our help. Other smaller countries like Veitnam and Malasia are questionable. I hope and pray that this new tree planting agenda will help save our children from breathing what we are breathing now.

    • Remember the democrat god obama got up plugging for hillary he waved his arms and said where are the jobs coming from? He (TRUMP) going to wave his magic wand and the would suddenly appear?
      Hell of a magic wand. 8+ million jobs entered this country with the stroke of his magic wand (ie:pen). The democrat god obama wiped out 12000 jobs in the 5 gulf coast states with the stroke of HIS magic wand (ie:pen). Not counting the coal industry, energy exploration and allowing illegals to overrun our southern border threatening ICE and immigration authorities so they won’t stop the drugs and ILLEGALS coming across illegally.
      The democrats have promoted violence hatred and haters all to intimidate the Republicans and their supporters. How’s that going maxine waters? NOT TO GOOOOOOD.
      You will find that the RIGHT WILL TAKE ALOT OF SHIT BUT THIS LITTLE RUBBER BAND UR TWISTING IS ABOUT TO BREAK AND U maxine will be one of the ones whom WE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT FORGET. SO CRANK UP UR antifa GET THEM ALL RILED UP AND WE THE PEOPLE WILL STOP THEM PERMANENTLY. have a great day maxine.

  19. Technology leads to efficiency, over regulation simply overburdens the economic and intellectual resources that drive technology. A very good example would be the auto industry from the mid 70s. The government dictated “tho shalt not” release unburned hydrocarbons. Result, naturally market and competitively driven technology suffered greatly and set us back years. The answer as result was lower the engine efficiency, higher cost and add catalyst which produced sulphuric acid. It took over 20 years for technology to finally get back to doing what it wasn’t able to do rather than continue concentrating on grabbing the brass ring. President Trump understands this very well and the government bureaucrats redirection of our wealth to line their pockets and justify their existence are on the chopping block. If you wonder why the bureaucrats hate Trump there’s your answer.

  20. The real issue is that Obama pledged $100billion to the pot without any time tables, strings attached, etc. Free money, free money, come one come all, free money. Thnx Barry, but no thnx. This article shows what competition on the FREE market will accomplish to change energy useages.

  21. This is not about climate change it’s about the one world order billionaires controlling the 99%, they have all the things they want the only thing they don’t have his control of the people and that’s what they want to control control control and enslave the 99% sure there’s no hope but survival for the 99% if they walk to the beat of the drum!

  22. When it comes to science, listen to the scientists. This thing is really happening, and like it or not, humans are the cause. My problem is that the left is trying to hijack the subject, and say the solution is socialism. As capitalists, we need to find solutions that make sense, that we can sell to the rest of the world. Doing good in the world while making a profit sounds like a win-win to me, but first we have to pull our heads out of the sand and admit that there is a problem. Good old American ingenuity is the best solution!

    • There is no problem you’re buying into the left this is about control nothing but control. The climate has been changing on this planet since God created the earth shall continue to change until there is north of which the Bible says the earth will continue! God will rain on this planet not the communist or the one world order billionaires! God is in control!

    • Which scientists should we listen to? The 970 working for the government under government grants that are pushing global warming or the 40,000 not getting grants that say your post is bullshit?

  23. There isn’t one granola head demonstrator not wearing clothes manufactured in China produced by massive spewing of co2 by coal fired plants fueled by North Korean coal.
    NK uses that money received to build rockets to threaten our allies and us.
    BOYCOTT CHINA MADE PRODUCTS.

  24. We are the leaders in CO2 reduction because of natural gas. The previous administration often tried to thwart gas and oil exploration and production. We are energy independent now. I hope we will continue to be able to stay that way.

  25. The problem is everyone wants the USA to be their policeman, maid and pocketbook! Thats why they all want a one world government with us subject to them. Screw them, let them fix their own problems and pay for it themselves! USA!USA!USA!

    • I totally agree John. These environmentalists, if that’s what you want to call them, have this fear mongering technique that has worked down thru the years and the left took hold and is milking it for money(look at al gore), notoriety and another excuse for raising taxes.
      But I do believe there is a problem out there and it’s the same problem we’ve had since the beginning. Democrat demigog. Bullshit for those of us who don’t know what that means. A 1 world government will NEVER HAPPEN HERE. B/C WE THE PEOPLE WONT ALLOW ANOTHER COUNTRY TO CONTROL OUR SOVEREIGNTY.
      They will have to destroy us completely b4 we COMPLY. WHICH WE THE REAL AMERICAN PEOPLE WON’T EVER COMPLY.
      So be a democrat and believe whatever they tell you to believe or be a free thinker and research this bullshit and ur liberal lives will be much better.

    • While Dems scream that Trump is destroying clean air and climate control and change by pulling out of the Paris Accord, isn’t it remarkably interesting that under Trump’s control our carbon emissions reduced considerably over that of China and India whose emissions rose immensely. What’s truly surprising is the fact that the highest carbon emissions in America comes from none other than California, Pelosi’s Democrat controlled state! So what’s her excuse going to be for that? If Americans really stop and think about it, the whole time that the Democrats have been controlling California, not one damned thing has been done to positively reduce carbon emissions and smog which runs horribly rampant across the whole state. And that doesn’t even include the tons of poisons and emissions contaminating every food and drink source of California. Maybe the people of California should critically scrutinize Pelosi and Shifty Schiff who leads the Democrat corruption destruction of California.
