Carbon Emissions Reductions

The U.S. leads the world in them, but don’t tell anyone:

Efforts to curb so-called man-made climate change had little or nothing to do with it. Government mandated “green” energy didn’t cause the reductions. Neither did environmentalist pressure. And the U.S. did not go along with the Kyoto Protocol to radically cut CO2 emissions. Instead, the drop came about through market forces and technological advances, according to a report from the International Energy Agency.

…”It’s good news and good news doesn’t get reported as much,” John Griffin, executive director of Associated Petroleum Industries of Michigan, said of the lack of reporting about the CO2 reductions. “The mainstream media doesn’t want to report these kinds of things.”

Doesn’t fit the narrative.

    I can’t remember, Rand, but I thought you don’t believe human activity is contributing to global warming?

      I don’t recall him saying he belives it does. But since the greenies have placed the focus on reducing CO2, he’s merely pointing out that this is, what is being accomplished.

      Without the government oversight the watermelons want.

      But I know you were just being facetious.

      I have no belief on that subject, either way. That’s what makes me a skeptic (and not a “denier”), which is the proper scientific attitude until the evidence is overwhelming.

        Thanks, I honestly didn’t know your position. If I can ask you further: Do you reject the data or methodologies of the thousands of climate scientists who publish in this discipline?

          Largely, yes, insofar as they claim to be able to model the future going forward. They’re not as smart as they think they are, and many, like Mann, are mediocrities.
