Chart of the Day – Who’s the Cleanest of Them All?

Our friend Vance Ginn, who served as chief economist at the Office of Management and Budget under President Trump, tipped us that the EPA has updated its long-term data comparisons through 2022. The EPA reports that over the past 42 years from 1980 to 2022, carbon dioxide emissions are up slightly – by 7%.

But per unit of GDP since 1980 carbon dioxide emissions are down by about 80 percent. Per-person emissions are down by more than 50%. And as we’ve noted many times before on these pages, even with a near tripling of the U.S. economy, our levels of all the real pollutants are all DOWN by more than 60%.

This means the more America produces relative to the rest of the world, and the less China produces, the better for the ecology of the planet.
