Global carbon dioxide emissions reached record high in 2018

Global energy-related carbon emissions rose to a record high in 2018 as energy demand and coal use increased. The IEA said CO2 emissions rose by 1.7 per cent to 33.1 billion tonnes from the previous year, the highest rate of growth since 2013. The US’ CO2 emissions grew by 3.1 per cent in 2018. China, US, and India accounted for nearly 70 per cent of the rise in energy demand.

Developing nations will never fall for these international accords to "save the planet" and they represent an overwhelming part of the pie. It's also hilarious af how China and India increased emissions after signing the Paris Agreement in 2016 😂 as did""the rest of the worl"" besides Europe😂😂😂

it always strikes me as odd how globalist compare the USA with individual countries of Europe when the USA is over two and half times as large in land area.

well, a little self awareness never hurt anyone, so heres some. we have had about 120 years to get where we are. most nations have had about 40. we use about 20% of the world's energy for 4% of the population, but it's clearly somehow their fault. and yes, they are making more progress than we are.

Good. It means most of the world's governments are only paying lip service. The Paris Accords condemn literally billions to poverty. Cheap energy means development. Solar panels mean expensive virtue signalling by science illiterates.

Hannibal, remove the Billions of dollars spent by Governments to subsidize fossil fuel and it is no longer a cheap energy source. The US subsidies fossil fuel at the highest rate in the world. Undeveloped countries lack the infrastructure to support a fossil-fueled energy grid let alone the power plants. It would be backward looking to build the required infrastructure and power plants that run on fossil fuels. The only one's to profit off of that would be developed countries that build the infrastructure and power plants and provide the fuel. Small localized solar and wind would be cheaper and far more efficient. https://news.energysage.com/solar-energy-vs-fossil-fuels/
