Surprise: GHGs Dropped Under Trump, Warmists Are Still Not Happy

Warmists are never happy, though. They always have something to complain about, because it really is a doomsday cult, and that requires constant scaremongering, which makes them angry, sad, unhinged. Plus, if it happened under President Trump, that climate anxiety is going to go through the roof

US greenhouse gas emissions drop under Trump, but climate experts aren’t celebrating

As President Donald Trump prepares to leave office, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions are plunging to levels not seen in decades.

“Our regulations are meaningful. We’re seeing reductions in greenhouse gases. And, you know, should we go further? We’re going to the extent that the law allows us to go with the agency,” said outgoing Environmental Protection Agency administrator Andrew Wheeler in an interview with ABC News Live on his agency’s four-year track record.

The U.S. is projected to generate 5.9 billion metric tons of emissions in 2020 — down more than 9% from 2019 and about the same level as in 1983, according to a BloombergNEF study.

That should be good, right? Warmists are always yammering on about getting to below the 1980 average

Climatologists and environmental advocates say the rosy headline masks a sobering reality: the decline in emissions isn’t happening nearly fast enough to stave off catastrophic impacts of a rapidly warming planet.

“In 2020, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions will be substantially lower than they were in 2019, but that’s not because of progress that the Trump administration has made in reducing emissions,” said Trevor Houser, an energy and climate analyst with the Rhodium Group, a nonpartisan research organization. “That’s because we had the largest economic recession in a generation. So that’s not exactly cause for celebration.”

Last year, U.S. carbon pollution slid to the lowest level since 1992, according to EPA.

Well, here’s an idea (I bet you know where I’m going): all Warmists should act like it’s lockdown and travel nowhere, do not use fossil fuels, do not buy stuff.

“Let’s be clear. We need to bring carbon emissions down to net zero within a couple of decades, and we need to bring them halfway there within the next decade,” said Michael Mann, Penn State University climatologist and geophysicist and author of “The New Climate War.” “That requires massive action on our part and on the part of every other country in the world.”

Practice what you preach.

“COVID-19 is a big problem for the country; the economic situation. But the climate really is right up there beyond any lip service given,” said Aji Piper, 20, the Washington state climate activist who is one of nearly two dozen young Americans who have been suing the federal government since 2015 for contributing to climate change.

After four years of Trump’s hands-off approach to climate, Piper said the harms to his family are only getting worse.

“My mom has some pretty serious lung issues. And so wildfire smoke and the increased wildfire seasons just put her health at risk in jeopardy, which is personally distressing for me,” Piper said. “You don’t want to see your parents suffering like that.”

Let me get this straight: because Trump didn’t really do anything but keep things the same as Obama, Doom for parents? I’m just wondering if Piper and cohorts have stopped using their smartphones for more than texting and calling, because all that streaming and high use of the Internet is Bad for ‘climate change.’

Anyhow, lots more whining in the article, but, strangely, not one Warmist says they’ve forgone the use of fossil fuels and made their own lives Net Zero.

    Classic Teach! The Trump Recession resulted in lower CO2 emissions and Teach uses that to attack those who understand the threat of global warming.

    Once Der Trumpenfuhrer is gone and the economy starts to recover from his and the Republican’s neglect, CO2 emissions will once again increase.

    Warmists like Rimjob are never happy… unless they’re bitching about something they made up.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Haters and science deniers such as DickBreath can only be happy seeing others hurt.

    Classic J-the drop in US emissions began before the China flu hit the country

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Classic Jil – the drop in US emissions began well before Trump took office, i.e., under President Obama. It was dropping less under Trump until the Trump Plague and Trump Recession.

      • alanstorm says:

        Technically true. Unfortunately for science-deniers like yourself, the REASON it was dropping because of new and cheaper nat gas supplies made available via fracking – which Obama the Idiot opposed.

        We realize you’re not terribly bright. There is NO reason to keep proving it.

      • Jl says:

        Classic J-doesn’t understand that “before the China flu” would encompass all that, right? You’re welcome.

    Climatologists and environmental advocates can go have intercourse with themselves.
