Biden’s US emissions discount program repeats earlier errors that result in extra world emissions will increase – what to do with it?
Guest essay by Larry Hamlin
Biden and the Democrats The US 50% emissions reduction by 2030 will simply lead to the same failed future emissions results that have occurred in the last 15 years, but on an even more amazingly expensive and catastrophically damaging economic scale.
The hard core truth about the political gimmicks of Biden and the Democratic “climate summit” was exposed in an article in the Financial Times that described pledges by the US and other nations as “unrealistic” and “outstanding”. The article goes on to say:
“But the reality is that countries just haven’t done enough follow-up at home to deliver on promises made more than five years ago.”
Global emissions data showing emissions growth from 2005 (the year set by Biden as the starting point for measuring the politically engineered emissions reduction target of 50% in the US) through 2019 shows global emissions growth that was shared exclusively by non-OECD countries Most of these nations have no emission reduction commitments whatsoever in the coming decades, including the huge emission-increasing factors China and India, which together recorded 5.8 billion tons of CO2 growth over that period, compared to 1, 8 billion tons of reductions made by the US and India Europe simply being swallowed up by these other nations.
It is even clearer that the relative increase in growth in these non-OECD countries from 2005 to 2019 shows even more clearly how different the increase in emissions was between the industrialized and developing countries during this period. China’s emissions have increased over 76% since 2005, India has increased over 120% since 2005, with the US and Europe registering emissions growth of around 14% and 15%, respectively.
Global emissions data, reflecting all emissions results from developing and developed countries, provides a clear picture of how ridiculous the emission differences between these groups of nations have become, and shows that Bidens and his Democrats’ reduction programs are irrelevant (but massively expensive) to the steady increase in stopping global emissions.
The industrialized nations of the world (OECD Developed Nations), with the USA and the EU as pioneers, achieved global emissions reductions of almost 1.7 billion tons of CO2 from 2005 to 2019, as clearly shown below, with the significant reduction decline starting at the beginning of the period.
These OECD nationwide reductions, however, are greatly overwhelmed by the colossal emissions growth of developing countries (non-OECD developing countries) of nearly 8.2 billion tons, as illustrated below, with the incredibly sharp increase from China and India over the period 2005-2019 is clearly visible.
The end result obtained when the emissions from developing and developed countries are combined (the graph below combines all emissions from OECD and non-OECD countries with the US emissions profile, which is the boundary between these groups with all emissions from non -OECD countries above the USA) that in the period from 2005 to 2019 global emissions growth of over 6.5 billion tons of CO2 has increased enormously in this period, with the decrease in emissions of the industrialized countries (OECD Developed Nations) from 2005 onwards becomes clearly visible and in The graph is overwhelmed by the never-before-seen surge in total global emissions, dictated solely by the world’s developing countries (non-OECD developing countries), led by China and India.
These differences in emissions results between developing and industrialized countries, which are clearly illustrated in these diagrams, are unfairly concealed by Biden, the Democratic Party and their media coverage (presentations of global emissions data and diagrams are clearly avoided by Biden and his advocates of democratic emission reduction on the basis of these comparisons – the absurdity Their reduction programs show) who falsely claim that their efforts are needed to “fight climate change” when, in fact, global emissions continue to skyrocket.
Biden and his Democrats are so completely out of touch with the energy and emissions realities that they continue to propose ending the use of natural gas with lower costs, higher efficiency and lower emissions in our countries, despite natural gas totaling around 3.4 billion tons of accumulated natural gas provides CO2 reductions in the period 2005-2019, which accounted for about 62% of the country’s total reductions during that period. The position of Biden and the Democrats to end natural gas consumption can only be described as an act of monumental stupidity and incompetence.
The pattern of inevitable exploding and globally controlled emissions increases outside the OECD was falsely revealed by Biden in his presidential address to Congress on April 28 when he deviated from the script and announced that he had rejoined the failed Paris Climate Agreement because of the US emissions reductions “don’t care” because Biden, his Democrats, and their media cabal know it Massively strong increases in emissions are driven by the developing countries of the world, which cannot be stopped.
Regardless of future emissions reductions made by the US and the EU, global emissions will continue to rise due to the extra billions of tons driven by the insatiable appetites of developing countries to fuel the growth of their economies, fossil fuels, much more among them Coal (the most common fuel in non-OECD countries), natural gas and oil.
Unfortunately, Biden and his Democratic Party’s emissions reduction targets are “important” to Americans, as their immensely costly multi-trillion dollar negative economic impact will do absolutely nothing to halt the rising growth of global emissions and the US economy at the same time severely damaging.
