The United States is. This is a point we’ve made at CTUP for years, so we were thrilled to see a new study by our friends at Institute for Energy Research providing slam-dunk evidence.

Here is the ranking:
And here is our record in improving air quality:
The takeaway: Biden’s climate strategy to strangle domestic fossil fuel production isn’t just hurting our economy, it will transfer production to countries like China and Venezuela with horrible environmental records.
This isn’t green. It’s dumb.
