Here's a little something for all you lefty green environmentalist wackos to chew on. Turns out that your most hated president of all time may have done more for your cause than you may want to admit or be known to the world. It is being reported that Bush lowered greenhouse gases by an astounding 21%.
Via Sightline Daily:
Great Scott, how did I miss this? Late last month, the EPA released a draft greenhouse gas inventory, showing that net climate warming emissions from the U.S. fell by a whopping 15 percent from 2000 through 2009 [PDF].
A 15 percent decline? Wow. Just wow.
But the story gets even more dramatic. Over the same period, the U.S. population grew by about 9 percent. Combining the two trends, net per capita greenhouse-gas emissions fell by 21 percent over the decade. And most of that reduction occurred prior to 2007 -- when the economy hadn't yet slumped, and before energy prices hit the roof.
Did you hear that greenies!? During a rising population, a robust economy, and cheap gas prices. I hope it turns out that theres a correlation between that and waging two wars.
