Al Gore FRENZIED: United States CO2 Levels Have Not Risen in YEARS
Once more, science provides bad news for global warming alarmists as US CO2 levels again continue to decline and remain at reletively low levels.
In fact, for years now the levels have been declining, even after Trump removed the US from the Paris Climate Accord.
While there was a slight insignificant uptick in winter of 2018, most attribute it to the just that, the extremely cold winter.
Last year, European output of CO2 rose 1.5%, while U.S. output fell 0.5%. For the record, the disaster predicted when President Trump left the Paris climate agreement and rejected draconian EPA restrictions on power plants hasn’t materialized. On the contrary, the U.S. model has been shown to be superior.
The new report, based on U.S. data, shows clearly the U.S. continuing downward trend.
According to researchers at the Global Carbon Project, carbon dioxide levels have held flat for 4 years running. These reduced CO2 emissions have come even as the global economy has continued to grow.
“The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950,” wrote the Daily Caller. “After rising for decades, it’s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years.”
That’s right. 67 years. Green groups and leftist climate extremists should be exulting. The U.S. has found a way to produce more GDP — making all of us better off — with less energy.
Of course, numbers rise and fall, but basically, they have remained flat towards decline. They are not in a cataclysmic rise as alarmists insist.
From the Washington Post:
And now, the group reports, 2016 appears to be similar to 2014 and 2015, based on early projections. It will be about a 0.2 percent increase above the emissions levels of 2015, the group calculates, or barely a rise at all.
The results were released in the form of a massive study in the journal Earth System Science Data, written by no less than 67 researchers from an army of institutions. That’s what it takes, it seems, to chart the annual flow of carbon throughout the Earth’s systems.
“2016 we estimate to be flat again,” said Glen Peters, one of the contributors to the research and a scientist at the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research-Oslo in Norway. “It’s definitely three years, it’s fairly flat, which is quite a contrast to a decade ago, when it was growing at about 3 percent. It’s really leveled out the last few years.”
The truth, and it’s proven by the hard data, is that CO2 made in the USA will not choke the world to death or cause it to massively overheat. And you can thank capitalism for that.
Because capitalism, unlike socialism and its welfare-state kin, hates waste. So it does all it can to be efficient. That means using as little energy as possible to make things. And this predates any of the current CO2 hysteria.
In the U.S., the data are clear and utterly convincing: In 1949, it took 1,098 metric tons of CO2 emissions to produce $1 million in GDP in the U.S., after adjusting for inflation. Today, it takes just 301 metric tons to produce that same million dollars, after inflation — a 73% gain in carbon-efficiency.
Indeed, we’re actually de-carbonizing our economy, and rapidly.
Climate Change ‘experts’ have been claiming for over a decade that 98% of the Scientific community believes it is man-made.
That 98% statistic comes from an equation of 75 out of 77 climate change scientists.
Imagine that! Al Gore lied! Guess what? He knows he lied!
The 98% lie comes from a 2009 American Geophysical Union survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey that was sent to 10,257 scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois.
The widely used survey was sent to only 10,000 scientists. Only 3,000 of those came back and only 77 peer-reviewed climate scientists actually participated!
Yet it is the main talking point used by the left to prove the Climate Change Hoax!!
