How can you argue that it's not being addressed?


Two years in a row (2019 and 2020), the largest reductions in global emissions came from the US. US emissions are down 12% since 2005. Even during the "keep on digging" Trump years, coal use was down 3% and renewables were up 11% In spite of government, not because of it.

Now we can certainly debate whether that's enough, but to suggest we haven't made significant progress as a country since global warming became a central issue is ignoring the facts.

And there's no reason to believe those numbers can't be accelerated as climate change takes on more urgency.

Seems to me you're looking for conservatives to sign on to heavy-handed government intervention that threatens to ruin the economy while there is still a lot of disagreement among scientists about the environmental impact of such actions.

If so, you're gonna be disappointed.
