“The United States – the country that is routinely vilified by the Green/Left for refusing to sign the Kyoto Protocol or impose carbon taxes or institute a cap-and-trade system – is dramatically cutting its production of carbon dioxide.  Proof of that has come from both the International Energy Agency in Paris and the Energy Information Administration in Washington.  But you won’t hear about America’s success at cutting carbon dioxide emissions from groups like the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, or the leftist Center for American Progress.  That’s because those very same groups are opposing production of the fuel that’s making those reductions possible: natural gas.”



“We [Greens] never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable, nor did we expect the Greens to cast aside our priceless ecological heritage because of their failure to understand that the needs of the Earth are not separable from human needs.”

[T]he U.S. has been the world’s leader in reducing carbon emissions for over a decade. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, carbon emissions in this country declined 14 percent between 2005 and 2017, mainly because more electricity has been generated from fracked natural gas…  Fracking does release methane gas [which is about  100 times  more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2], but according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2018 Greenhouse Gas Inventory, released in April 2019, U.S. methane emissions declined 15.8 percent between 1990 and 2017, while natural gas production increased by 51 percent.  Nonetheless, virtually every Democratic presidential candidate who participated in CNN’s [2019] seven-hour climate change marathon opposes fracking.

These are all examples of the energy rebound effect where increased energy efficiency is offset by increases in energy use because increased fuel efficiency lowers the relative cost of consumption.
