Here's something that I'm willing to bet that you didn't hear about in the mainstream media and if by chance you have heard this, I'll guarantee it wasn't from any liberal sources.
President Trump was ripped into by liberals everywhere when he made the decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement which had to do with climate change.
Of course, you know Greta Thunberg had to weigh in on this as well. She said,“The fact that the U.S.A. is leaving the Paris accord seems to outrage and worry everyone, and it should. But the fact that we’re all about to fail the commitments you signed up for in the Paris Agreement doesn’t seem to bother the people in power even the least.”
Well, what does the data actually show? Here's what the latest report from The International Energy Agency (IEA) shows:
The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt. US emissions are now down almost 1 Gt from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period. A 15% reduction in the use of coal for power generation underpinned the decline in overall US emissions in 2019.
Coal-fired power plants faced even stronger competition from natural gas-fired generation, with benchmark gas prices an average of 45% lower than 2018 levels. As a result, gas increased its share in electricity generation to a record high of 37%.
Overall electricity demand declined because demand for air-conditioning and heating was lower as a result of milder summer and winter weather.
So Thunberg said that the U.S. was going to fail in meeting their commitment to the agreement prior to leaving it, but she was dead wrong. She would have known that if she actually did some research and quit spouting off the stuff that her daddy tells her to say.
If climate change activists genuinely cared and that this wasn't all just a political game, they would look at China and India. Both of those countries actually saw growth in their CO2 emissions last year.

Democratic Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak reacted strongly to President Trump's optimism about a malaria drug being able to treat the Wuhan Virus. While President Trump expressed optimism, anti-Trump Democrats like Sisolak were strongly against it.
Governor Sisolak banned hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19, fearing people would hoard it and causes shortages for other types of patients who need it. While the public was restricted from getting their hands on the life-saving drug, Nevada's Department of Corrections began stockpiling the drug for prisoners.
