Below is a link to the environmental journal Environmental Science & Technology and their report on the drop in emissions in the US. The report is not free but the abstract and image I pasted below are.
I am not expecting environmentalists to support fracking as a result of studies like these but I am curious what their justifications will be. I am also curious if anyone will point out that temperatures have continued to increase despite the fact that CO2 rates have dropped. If CO2 is the heat trapping gas that the Anthropogenic Global Warming crowd says it is, then shouldn’t the rise in temperatures begin slowing down?
