Under waldo’s policy, the country in purple gets 8 more years, at least, before reducing emissions.  And that’s voluntary, they could always choose to tell the world to pound sand.

Lol, I love how you need to go back to 1850! 😂 When China wasn’t even industrialized.  Btw, how do volcanic eruptions stack up to the chart you posted?  Any idea?
Regardless, what’s your position going to be when China over takes them?  Why are you ok with China deferring reductions for another 8 years?  Isn’t climate change an urgent issue?

The idea that the largest per capita emitters should just do nothing because these other countries are increasing their total emissions is, in a word, retarded.

quit being the fool, hey! At what point would you like a historical accounting to begin? But hey now, nice Shady own-goal... as you scurry about trying to give the U.S. cover for it's principal historical emission contributions, as you repeatedly target China's current emissions, you clearly prefer... expect... a China that stays undeveloped and one that reverts to a backward agrarian society rather than that of an industrial powerhouse!

Btw, how do volcanic eruptions stack up to the chart you posted?  Any idea?

the waldo is shocked you're dropping a tried&true denier deflection! Here let the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) punt your implication: "the world’s volcanoes, both on land and undersea, generate about 200 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, while our automotive and industrial activities currently cause some 35+ billion tons of CO2 emissions yearly worldwide."

Regardless, what’s your position going to be when China over takes them?  Why are you ok with China deferring reductions for another 8 years?  Isn’t climate change an urgent issue?

quit trolling - you've repeatedly been schooled on what a peak emissions target actually means in terms of the required start of mitigating reduction actions and the supporting policies that drive those actions; again:


You gonna tell China and India about this, so that maybe they’ll act sooner than possibly 2030?

oh how you struggle with the concept of peak emissions and targeting it... a moron is Shady. Don't be Shady!

notwithstanding the fact China has actually provided a NDC emissions improvement target update to its 2015 Paris Agreement NDC commitment, riddle me this Shady:
=>if a country... any country... pledged to reach peak emissions by 2030, how would that country reach that peak target without beginning mitigating reductions in 2015 on-through-to today and on-through-to 2030?
clearly you can't grasp the concept of policies driving mitigating emission reduction actions working towards a peak target... your "waiting to peak" comment showcases your ignorance! Your 2030/8 years reference reinforces you haven't a clue as to what the updated China NDC commitment actually is!

Who said do nothing?  I certainly didn’t.  But carry on with your straw man.

It's pretty easy to piece that together when you oppose environmental regulation of virtually any sort, want to increase fossil fuel production, oppose domestic carbon reduction etc etc.

But not all fossil fuels are equal.  Natural gas for instance is MUCH cleaner than oil.  Also, carbon capture technology.  Using solar when applicable, and build new nuclear power plants.  Raising taxes and banning fuels don’t do anything other than crush your economy and push jobs overseas to countries without such repressive restrictions.  Your policies do nothing but cede power to counties like Russia, see Europe currently, and ship jobs to China, India etc.

That's also LA.  A lot more sun to power solar panels in California than any part of Canada.

We need nuclear or we're screwed.
I queef, therefore I am.

Exactly.  I don’t take any climate alarmist seriously that’s not a proponent of nuclear power.  It’s literally the solution to the problem.
