Hey beanie.... US CO2 Emissions From Electricity Generation Down to 1980’s Levels… Frac On!

Recommended Posts

NOVEMBER 10, 2020
U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide emissions fell in 2019, mainly in electric generation

After rising by 3% in 2018, energy-related carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions fell 3% in the United States in 2019. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) U.S. Energy-Related Carbon Dioxide Emissions, 2019 analysis, total energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 were about 150 million metric tons (MMmt) lower than their 2018 level. EIA attributes nearly all (96%) of this decline to the changing mix of fuels used to generate electricity.



O2 emissions from electric power generation are now down to where they were in the mid-1980’s.

Here’s the really funny part: The drop in emissions is mostly (61%) due to frac’ing.


Since 1990, the share of electricity generated by natural gas-fired power plants has grown from 12% to 38%. While the share generated by non-carbon fuels (nuclear, hydroelectric, wind, solar, etc.) has only grown from 31% to 38%. Unfortunately, almost all of that growth has come at the expense of our most reliable fuel, coal.

The growth in natural gas-fired generation was made possible by the abundant supply of cheap natural gas provided by the oil & gas industry through the use of hydraulic fracturing (frac’ing) of shale and other tight formations.

WE ALL think you are a nut case waiting for the ASYLUM to come take you away!!

So, SHITSTAIN, seeing that the US of A has the LOWEST, PRE 1980's CO2 emissions, what do you say about THAT???


Other than he hates ANYTHING Trump did to make sure it happened!!

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, beanie will be against ALL THAT FOSSIL FUEL BEING USED TO LOWER CO2 in the atmosphere!!! THANKS TO TRUMP, that is happening NOW and it's NOT "lowering the temperate" of the planet!! So, @benson13, care to explain WHY that isn't happening?? Oh wait, you think it's because we need "solar panels" that only work when there is actually a PERFECTLY CLEAR SKY, right, SHITSTAIN??


Imagine that.
