US at Bottom of Climate Change Ranking

Just to be clear, the US is not at the dead bottom of the Climate Change Performance Index; Saudi Arabia has the dubious distinction of being #56 on a list of 56. The US is 55, down from 53 last year.

The report is worth reading; it has a detailed methodology and looks at emission trends, emission levels, and climate policy.

If you want poionted commentary on the report instead, have a look at International Political Economy Zone “Bush’s USA: #1 Environmental Rogue Regime?” It also reports on the US’s posture at the UN sponsored conference on climate change in Bail.

    Any report on climate change which ranks China (the same China that commissions a new coal-fired power plant approximately every week) 15 places ahead of the US is hard to take seriously.

    The report does have useful info on countries carbon dioxide emissions. The rankings are gamed and useless. For example it counts nuclear plants as emitting carbon dioxide since they are “a risky power source”. So, the ranking properly understood is: how well do environmentalists like various countries. Has nothing to do with carbon dioxide if a major solution to global warming (nuclear power) is counted as part of the problem

    This is a ranking of how gullible countries are. If not stopped, the global warming scam will enrich the scammers (Gore), increase the power of the U.N. and Marxists like Obama, and multiply poverty and servitude for the rest of us.

    Believing that human activities can change the weather is like believing that the earth is the center of the universe. The earth is not the center of the universe.

    More than 31,000 American scientists have signed onto the Global Warming Petition Project. The petition states, “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate…”

    It is CRIMINAL to force us to swallow the global warming hoax, which will increase unemployment, poverty and dependence.
