yes, the "inconvenient fact" that we remain with is -And yet here we remain with the inconvenient fact of the US having reduced its CO2 more than anywhere else.
the US has been more responsible than any other country for the historical CO2 emissions currently in the atmosphere, &
the US is the current leader (apart from a handful of insignificant, mainly oil producing countries) when it comes to emissions per capita,
& they have reneged under their commitments under Paris,
& the President of the US is a Denier.
surely there's enough "inconvenient facts" there, to satisfy even you ?
correct - " The Earth doesn't care" - "the Earth can't care - it's people who care, & Deniers don't care,The Earth doesn't care how many people produced the CO2. Some leeway should be allowed for them to catch up - that's only fair but it underlies the lunacy of Ireland inflicting pain on itself.
& people do care "how many people produced the CO2"
as for your -
"Some leeway should be allowed for them to catch up" -
well, if the rest of the world are to "catch up" with the CO2 emissions of the USA, they have a lot of catching up to do.
on 2015 data, the US has 4.5% of the population of the planet, yet they produced 14.3% of the CO2 emissions.
if the rest of the world were, as you put it "to catch up" with the US in CO2 emissions, the total world emissions would be tripled !!!!!!
yet, you arrogantly claim that you're not a Denier ?
no need to shout - what I said was -You're a real black and white person, aren't you. "DON'T LIKE MASSIVE REDUCTIONS THAT WILL HARM THE ECONOMY AND DO BUGGER ALL TO CHANGE ANYTHING? YOU'RE TRUMP'S POODLE!"
Britain has very ambitious targets for CO2 reduction, & all of the main political parties support these targets.
sadly however, Boris Johnson appears to be eager & willing to be Trump's poodle, so there must now be a large question mark over the UK CO2 targets.
the comment of mine that I accused you of "crawling" away from is comment #73 on this thread.Link? I've lost track.
