A Bunch of Hot Air

Bad news for global warming alarmists. According to a recent report from the U.S. EPA, greenhouse gas emissions for 2006 (the most recent year for which calculations have been compiled) were actually down from 2005. The report, available here, is entitled “Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990-2006,” and is the latest in an annual set of reports that the United States submits to the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The study showed that U.S. greenhouse gas emissions declined by 1.1 percent from 2005 to 2006. Wonder what China’s greenhouse gas emissions did during the same time period? Overall, U.S. greenhouse gas emissions have grown by 14.7 percent from 1990 to 2006, but the U.S. economy has grown by 59 percent during the same time period.
Guess we’re not the wholesale polluters that Al Gore alleges, after all!
