From an AP/Fox report August 17, 2012!
In a (little noticed (publicized?) technical report), the U.S. Energy Information Agency, a part of the Energy Department, said this month that energy related U.S. CO2 emissions for the first four months of this year fell to about 1992 levels. Energy emissions make up about 98 percent of the total. The Associated Press contacted environmental experts, scientists and utility companies and learned that virtually everyone believes the shift could have major long term implications for U.S. energy policy. (Energy prices will "necessarily skyrocket" - President Obama"!)
With conservation efforts, the lagging economy and greater use of renewable energy are factors in the CO2 decline, the drop off was attributed due mainly to low priced natural gas, the agency said.
Coal and energy use are still growing rapidly in other countries, particularly China, and (CO2 levels globally are rising, not falling). Moreover, changes in the marketplace — a boom in the economy, a fall in coal prices, a rise in natural gas (prices - more than likely) — could stall or even reverse the shift. For example, U.S. emissions fell in 2008 and 2009, then rose in 2010 before falling again last year.
China’s emissions were estimated to be about 9 billion tons in 2011, accounting for about 29 percent of the global total. The U.S. accounted for approximately 16 percent. (AP/Fox)
The United States has 18 coal burning electrical plants (with scrubbers), China has 120 (without scrubbers) and building many more!
With the rest of the World creating 84% of the World's pollution, why are Americans still being led to believe that global warming is all their fault? (Oh! that's right, the western companies that moved their operations to Asia are still causing the "Man Made" green house gases - therefore, they must charge the American tax payers more to clean up World Pollution!)
Of course, none of the pollution coming from Asia will ever reach the shores of the United States!
LET US ALL GIVE A PAT ON THE BACK TO THE U.S. CLEAN GREEN PROPAGANDA MACHINE (ENVIRONMENTALISTS). (NOW THAT MOST OF OUR MANUFACTURING BASE HAS RELOCATED TO ASIA, I'M SURE THEY (ENVIRONMENTALISTS) HAVE PACKED THEIR BAGS AND BOOKED A FLIGHT TO CHINA - BUT, I'M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH UNTIL THAT HAPPENS!)
THOSE HOLDING "U.S. CARBON CREDITS" COULD GET MORE WEALTHIER BY SELLING THEM TO THE POLLUTING FACTORIES IN CHINA/ASIA! (I'm not holding my breath on this one either!)
Like P.T. Barnum once said: "There's a sucker born every minute"!
