US carbon emissions peaked in 2007 & have been reduced by 12.2% by 2016. We have reduced emissions more than almost every other nation! The EU spent $1.2 TRILLION on support for wind, solar & bioenergy but they INCREASED their CO2 emissions!
Our achievement was not due to Obama's punishing regulations that would cost Americans plenty in the future, but thank God, Trump stopped! The reduction was accomplished by the development of hydraulic fracturing; but Dems are against it despite the CO2 reductions it produced!
Europe is also against hydraulic fracturing, but just read all of the "green energy" processes they tried & did not succeed in reducing CO2 emissions! All they did was cost their citizens 2-3 times what they used to pay for electricity!
So the Dems already KNOW that all of these so-called "green energy" programs they demand we change to will do nothing to combat climate change but will cost taxpayers dearly! Great Britain is now considering an end to its carbon tax because industry is threatening to leave.
Industries are not willing to pay these escalating energy costs & will move to friendlier countries. The same thing would happen to our manufacturing & businesses. As Europe has already discovered & we should learn by their example, these "green energy" policies don't work!
China is the largest emitter of energy-related CO2 & China intends to INCREASE its CO2 emissions thru 2030 as it continues to grow its economy & provide electric power to its citizens more cheaply. India is the 3rd largest emitter & also plans to INCREASE its CO2 emissions!
India plans to do this to grow its economy in order to reduce poverty thru the use of coal, which is the most cost-effective way to produce electricity to its citizens. Even in that treasonous Paris Climate Accord, China & India were allowed to INCREASE their CO2 emissions!
The Accord Obama signed allowed China & India to continue increasing their CO2 emissions while the US was supposed to make crippling cuts to our already reduced carbon emissions! These cuts would cause industry in the US to move to China & other countries while bankrupting US!
Thankfully, Trump saved us from traitor Obama's deal! The Accord & now the #GreenNewDeal have one purpose only! Since these punitive measures do NOTHING to reduce the global temperature, why would Obama & Dems want to impose them on us? Why are they pretending it would help us?
Obama's EPA proposed more regulations to lower methane emissions. These reductions would only lower the global temp by 0.0047° Celsius by the year 2100! This means the regs would have no impact on global temps but would increase the cost of natural gas!
Since 2005, methane emissions declined 79% from hydraulically-fractured wells & from 2005-2013, they declined 38% from natural gas production overall. These reductions occurred despite natural gas production increasing by 50% between 2005-2015.
Clearly, Obama's regs that Trump stopped & now AOC's #GreenNewDeal that wants to regulate more would cost us more for energy despite the fact that we have reduced CO2 & methane emissions! Why does AOC & Dems think we should "lead" on policies that destroy business & bankrupt us?
We already reduced our emissions without any meddling from the federal gov't. Why do Dems think we should let the gov't regulate us into committing national suicide while empowering China & India to succeed?! If emissions are already declining, why do Dems want punitive regs?
Dems & environmentalists' goals have nothing to do with protecting taxpayers or even the climate. We are keeping methane in check even as we become a global energy superpower. You would think Dems & "environmentalists" would celebrate our progress!
All of the progress we have made has been from free-market enterprise, not punitive gov't regs. Capitalism is what has allowed our great nation to succeed while still becoming more conscious of our carbon footprint on the world.
The fact Dems & environments are still calling for MORE regs is a reminder that reducing carbon & methane emissions isn't really their goal. Why are they wanting more regulations & gov't control? The answer: The goal isn't reducing emissions. It's shutting down the industry!
