countries by US emissions

The US has inflicted more than $1.9tn in damage to other countries from the effects of its greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new analysis that has provided the first measurement of nations’ liability in stoking the climate crisis. The huge volume of planet-heating gases pumped out by the US, the largest historical emitter, has caused such harm to other, mostly poor, countries through heatwaves, crop failures and other consequences that the US is responsible for $1.91tn in lost global income since 1990, the study found. This puts the US ahead of China, currently the world’s leading emitter, Russian, India and Brazil as the next largest contributors to global


How dare we. Guess it's time to pay the piper, for the greater good.

Total BS, you money-grubbing grifters. Maybe after India and China and Russia pay their fare share for the pollution they’ve released into the world, we can talk. Until then, stuff it.

Would like to see the assumptions and weighting given to all the data. Its a pretty good bet that this study is similar to all those UN sponsored studies on most happy countries or most economically fair countries or best governe or best quality of life countrys that always get the US pretty much dead last. Then you look at the criteria and they always make sure that 50 to 75% of the score is based on a single payer government health system.

Even if it were true, America has been the single greatest source of prosperity these other countries have ever seen. America has increased standards of living, life expectancy and opportunity for billions of people for decades. If it weren't a lie, It's a rounding error and the price of doing business. They sell us cars and we pay for them, they sell us oil and we pay them, now they want to sue us for using them? Lets get China to pay the bill for the damage COVID19 has caused us first, then pay this off with 1% of that check.

Odd that the article doesn’t describe a single instance of “damage.” FTA: “The chief impediment to claims by one country against another for climate damages isn’t their scientific basis, it’s their legal basis,” said Michael Gerrard, director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School. Absence of proof is an impediment in the legal setting. Not in the grant application setting. Not in the unsubstantiated assertion setting. Not in the political setting. Schmoe will gladly dole those sums out and let one of huncher’s companies administer it.

Really? Then if we have moved our manufacturing out of country, are those foreign nations in turn inflicting damage on us? Or is it still considered U.S. emissions? And what about Chernobyl? What about the myriad of waste dumps the Soviet union has created? What about the Rare Earth mines? The Canadian Nickel mine can be sen from space. But somehow, only the U.S. is at fault? Stuff it!!!

Oh probably the same kind of models that drove the Covid scamdemic! The climate change models are known fraud, so tying emissions to fraudulent temperature models is fraudulent. Climate Scamdemic is redistribution of US wealth and nothing more. Biden has already started by giving billions to Ukraine.

99% of all the plastic trash floating in the mid-Pacific comes from 2 rivers in Asia and one in Africa. And when comparing economies of scale, the US contribution to global air pollution pales in comparison from the emissions from China, India, and Russia. Those countries haven't slowed down build coal-fired power plants one iota. This is just another shakedown. Go pound sand!

2 trillion against tens or hundreds of trillions of dollars aide we have given to the world including saving Europe in two world wars and furnishing them defense ever since, along with send aide to Africa for the last century to feed, clothe, and medicine to help them survive their never-ending droughts. I think it is time the rest of the world starts paying us back in return for carrying the load for them for so long.

Love how they stretch it all the way back to 1990 (32 years ago), but if you simply divide 32 into $2 trillion, you get $62,500,000,000 per year. Which is now nearly a rounding error with today's Congress. Not really sure how they conclude the emissions generated decades ago create anything that's happened today, or last year. They need to link what the United States was like years ago, when we are the only country who was on target to meet the Paris Accord goals mostly due to switch to using Natural Gas instead of Coal, but the enviro-nuts don't want anyone using that either.

The free market has don’t more to reduce air pollution than anything the Gov has done. I remember smog days in California and elsewhere back in the 70’s. CatLytic converters, natural gas supplanting coal, etc. but it’s never enough for damn liberals hence their constant droning on about the earth ending in X years. There is no evidence to support their doomsday scenarios. That leaves their forecasting record. The big scare in the 70’ was the coming ice age that would freeze all to death. Screw these fear mongers. They’re never right in anything they predict. Zero!

It does not...anywhere. There is quite literally NO mixing until you are at altitudes much higher than ANY weather effects are generated or felt at all.

Years ago, a client of mine who had been downsized from a big three auto co. job and went on to set up a consulting business in 'alternative fuels' (ethanol) told me about an incident. He was called upon by a government board to give info about ethanol. While waiting to be questioned, he talked with a climate expert who worked with a government agency. She told him that air was tested all over the U.S. for CO2 content. Air coming in over the west coast, from the Pacific (and China) had a higher CO2 content than air LEAVING the U.S. over the East Coast to the Atlantic. The U.S. IS A CARBON SINK.

A California bill signed into law Tuesday will allow residents to sue the manufacturers of guns that are used in crimes. A 2005 federal law prevents gun manufacturers from civil litigation when their products are used in crimes. The office of Gov. Gavin Newsom said the new state law uses an exemption to the federal law that allows firearms makers or sellers to be sued for violating state laws on the sale or marketing of guns. “To the victims of gun violence and their families: California stands with you. The gun industry can no longer hide from the devastating harm their products cause,” Mr. Newsom said in a news release.

Lawmakers in Washington want to give the U.S. more power to confront OPEC for allegedly colluding to hike global oil prices, but the effort faces stiff opposition and also contrasts with President Biden‘s plan to ask the cartel’s Saudi leader this week to increase oil production. The legislation, an antitrust measure dubbed the No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act or NOPEC, would arm the Justice Department with the power to sue OPEC or other countries that do business with it. The bill has been kicked around Capitol Hill for decades but garnered new interest ahead of Mr. Biden‘s trip this week to the Middle East,

Governments should put a moratorium on the use of biofuels and lift bans on genetic modification of crops, a green campaigning group has urged, in the face of a growing global food crisis that threatens to engulf developing nations. Ending the EU’s requirement for biofuels alone would free up about a fifth of the potential wheat exports from Ukraine, and even more of its maize exports, enough to make a noticeable difference to stretched food supplies, according to analysis by the campaign group RePlanet. About 3.3m tonnes of wheat were used in 2020 as feedstock for EU biofuels, and Ukraine’s 2020 wheat exports came to about 16.4m tonnes.

The US has inflicted more than $1.9tn in damage to other countries from the effects of its greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new analysis that has provided the first measurement of nations’ liability in stoking the climate crisis. The huge volume of planet-heating gases pumped out by the US, the largest historical emitter, has caused such harm to other, mostly poor, countries through heatwaves, crop failures and other consequences that the US is responsible for $1.91tn in lost global income since 1990, the study found. This puts the US ahead of China, currently the world’s leading emitter, Russian, India and Brazil as the next largest contributors to global

CNN contributor and Republican consultant Scott Jennings predicts that former President Donald Trump will announce an early Presidential bid to prevent Florida Governor Ron DeSantis from running in 2024. Jennings observed that given DeSantis’ popularity, specifically with conservatives across the country, he is a Trump-like figure without the baggage. Jennings said: “I definitely think there are a lot of Republicans out there who voted for Donald Trump twice, maybe gave him money, wanted to see him succeed who know we cannot drag the country and the party through this again in 2024, that he’s the least likely Republican to have a chance to win the White House …

The Brittney Griner story has been one which tears at us from two sides. When we hear about an American being detained in a foreign country for offenses which are considered minor here in the U.S., we often become sympathetic, depending on the infraction, of course. And when we learn that the country holding that prisoner is an archrival or enemy such as China, Iran, North Korea, or Russia, our sympathies become that much stronger. In the case of Brittney Griner, however, things aren’t that simple. Griner, who has been detained in a Russian prison since her arrest at a Moscow airport for possession of cannabis oil

A majority of Democrat voters say the Supreme Court should be abolished for its racist and misogynistic practices, according to a recent poll commissioned by the Heartland Institute. In addition, 54 percent of young people aged 19 to 39 concur, regardless of their political association. The survey of 1,025 U.S. voters was divided among party lines, with 53 percent of Democrats in favor of abolishing the current Supreme Court and replacing it with a “new, democratically elected . . . court with justices chosen by the American people directly,” and 33 percent “strongly” in favor. Only 21 percent of Republicans and 38 percent of independents favored the ill-advised proposition.

Pro-abortion fanatic Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has called to shut down crisis pregnancy centers “all around the country” for their work in helping women seek alternatives to abortion. Speaking with reporters, a visibly upset Warren falsely accused crisis pregnancy centers of fooling women out of getting an abortion: In Massachusetts, right now, those ‘crisis pregnancy centers’ that are there to fool people who are looking for pregnancy termination help outnumber true abortion clinics by 3-t0-1. We need to shut them down here in Massachusetts and we need to shut them down all around the country.

Democrats are facing their worst political environment in over a decade heading into November’s mid-term elections. Republicans lead the generic ballot and hold a solid structural advantage in competing for the House of Representatives. And despite concerns about candidate quality, the GOP is also favored to take control of the Senate. The correlation between presidential approval and their party’s mid-term prospects also can’t be ignored. Joe Biden has hit the lowest poll numbers of his term, with a recent Times/Siena poll showing him at just 33 percent approval with only 13 percent believing the country is on the right track. In response,

Shocking video footage has emerged of a young child repeatedly hitting a Minnesota cop who was there to arrest a murder suspect — calling the officer a “b—h” and telling his colleague to “shut the f–k up!” The clip released by Alpha News was filmed last week in St. Paul, a city that saw widespread rioting after the nearby police murder of George of Floyd and manslaughter of motorist Daunte Wright. “Shut up, b—h!” screamed the young child, who appeared to be only a few years old and wearing just underwear while standing in the street, with an even younger child in a diaper just behind him.

Hawley asked during a Senate Judiciary Committee on abortion rights. 'Many women, cis women, have the capacity for pregnancy.

Police arrested a man, who is believed to be an illegal immigrant, on Tuesday after he allegedly raped and impregnated a ten-year-old girl who reportedly traveled from Ohio to Indiana for an abortion, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The outlet reported that 27-year-old Gershon Fuentes confessed to raping the ten-year-old child on at least two occasions. The child became the subject of national media attention after the Indianapolis Star reported earlier this month that an Indianapolis-based obstetrician-gynecologist named Caitlin Bernard was asked by a child-abuse doctor in Ohio to help the young girl get an abortion

With the blazingly contagious BA.5 coronavirus variant blitzing communities across the nation, the White House on Tuesday pleaded with middle-aged and elderly Americans to get a fresh vaccine if they have not. “For people who are 50 years of age or older, my message is simple,” Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House COVID coordinator, said at a virtual news briefing. “If you have not gotten a vaccine shot in the year 2022—if you have not gotten one this year—please go get another vaccine shot.” Jha said summer shots will not prevent Americans from getting a strain-specific jab in the fall. “It could save your life,”

Elon Musk said former President Donald Trump should not run for a second term, arguing that he’s too old and “too much drama.” The Tesla CEO, who had vowed to reinstate Trump’s Twitter account before he moved to terminate the $44 billion acquisition of the social media giant, responded late Monday to a Twitter post from Breitbart News that included a clip of Trump slamming the tech mogul as “another bullsh-t artist.” “I don’t hate the man, but it’s time for Trump to hang up his hat & sail into the sunset,” the world’s richest person tweeted in response to Trump’s comments.
