Investors Business Daily has weighed in with a very poignant and penetrating editorial that, not surprisingly, flew right under the mainstream media’s radar. As it turns out, a recently released study reveals U.S. CO2 levels again declined during 2017, despite overall global output rose.
The new report, based on U.S. data, shows clearly the U.S. continuing downward trend.
“The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950,” wrote the Daily Caller. “After rising for decades, it’s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years.”
That’s right. 67 years. Green groups and leftist climate extremists should be exulting. The U.S. has found a way to produce more GDP — making all of us better off — with less energy.

The silence from environmentalists about this latest manuscript is not altogether surprising. Under normal circumstances, any rational being would jump for joy at the rate of emissions having gone down. Instead, we are treated to the same old doom-and-gloom predictions about the coming apocalypse that never materialize coupled with green political groups pursuing agendas to destroy our industry by any means necessary in hopes of eventually ridding the planet of human beings (excluding them of course).
