    If you whiney twats would support useful carbon-free tech like nuclear, we wouldn't mock you so much.

    I care so much about this planet that I'm unwilling to see the developed nations be stripped of their financial resources to spend it supporting third world baby factories.

    My part of the Earth First.

    Go get your own money Africa and China.

    America did something most signatories of the Paris Treaty FAILED to do, reduce CO2 emission.

    Even Without Paris Agreement, U.S. Leads World in Declining Carbon Dioxide Emissions

    "During the past two decades, the U.S., along with many Western European countries, has made emissions reduction and energy efficiency major priorities. Both through regulations that mandated stricter emissions standards for cars and power plants, as well as the deployment of new technology, the country has been able to dramatically reduce how much carbon dioxide it puts into the atmosphere.

    Since 2006, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions have been reduced by 11 percent. The trend towards lower emissions has continued as electricity generation transitions away from coal. In 2016, the U.S. reduced its carbon emissions further by 2 percent. This has been a dramatic decline, as this graph, from U.K. climate scientist Robert Wilson demonstrates.

    Trump is the worst when it comes to the environment

    The two Republican congressmen pushing a bill to put a price on planet-warming emissions wants to tax carbon at $24 per ton. Four Democratic lawmakers pegged the price at $50 per ton in their own legislation. The Trump administration settled on something more lower: $1 to $7 per ton by 2020.

    It's true, Republicans can come up with economically moronic ideas too.

    If Dems were serious about the dangers of CO2, they'd be big supporters of nuclear energy.

    We aren't against that GOP, Democrats join forces to advance nuclear power bill

    But we are against Trump's $1-$7 price tag. If he was serious he wouldn't have pushed that ridiculous #.

    Majorities in all 40 nations polled say climate change is a serious problem, and a global median of 54% believe it is a very serious problem. Still, the intensity of concern varies substantially across regions and nations. Latin Americans and sub-Saharan Africans are particularly worried about climate change. Americans and Chinese, whose countries have the highest overall carbon dioxide emissions, are less concerned.

    People in countries with high per-capita levels of carbon emissions are less intensely concerned about climate change. Among the nations we surveyed, the U.S. has the highest carbon emissions per capita, but it is among the least concerned about climate change and its potential impact. Others in this category are Australia, Canada and Russia. Publics in Africa, Latin America and Asia, many of which have very low emissions per capita, are frequently the most concerned about the negative effects of climate change.

    This is because the corporate media is lying to us. They lie to us because their corporate masters want them to lie to us about global warming being man made and bad for us.

    Same reason so many Americans don't believe in evolution. The people who run the GOP and the Churches are lying to you suckers. They are anti facts. Anti science.

    Republicans, the Rich and Religion are making Americans stupid.

    Evolution, Climate and Vaccines: Why Americans Deny Science

    The U.S. has a science problem. Around half of the country's citizens reject the facts of evolution; fewer than a third agree there is a scientific consensus on human-caused climate change, and the number who accept the importance of vaccines is ticking downward.
