US: Per person….. that’s 34,392 pounds of CO2 per year…… so 94 pounds per day…. almost 4 pounds per hour….
The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950. After rising for decades, it’s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years.
“Both before and after the 1980s, decadal sea-level rise has been a few inches. And it has not been appreciably accelerating. “The rate of sea level rise during the period ~1925–1960 is as large as the rate of sea level rise the past few decades, noted climate scientist Judith Curry. “Human emissions of CO2 mostly grew after 1950; so, humans don’t seem to be to blame for the early 20th century sea level rise, nor for the sea level rise in the 19th and late 18th centuries.””

“In the August 5 issue of the New York Times Magazine, reporter Nathaniel Rich spells out, in just shy of 30,000 words, how in the decade spanning 1979 to 1989, we came very close to halting climate change in its tracks, only we didn’t.”
“Ultimately, the only way military force could stop Iran from going nuclear is if the US committed to a more or less indefinite war.
“To fulfill the stated objective of ensuring that Iran never acquires a nuclear bomb,” the Wilson Center report finds, “the U.S. would need to conduct a significantly expanded air and sea war over a prolonged period of time, likely several years.””
Then again… just one more threat from Iran and it could be over in 30 minutes…
““This is the manliest thing I’ve ever done,” he gushes. “I’m just going to rest my huge balls on the crane,” Richard Hammond brags. They drop the cars, and May – you can call him ‘James Cousteau’ – dons a Victorian diving suit and descends into the murky depths where the cars can anchor to the sea floor. Success!
The next day, the cars wash onto the beach of a very posh resort.
May gets a bulldozer and destroys half the beach, while Clarkson tries to tow the cars back into the ocean as tourists watch. After much shouting, the boys drop the sarcasm and actually accomplish something good for the environment by helping to build a coral reef, sort of.”
“To protect smelt from water pumps, government regulators have flushed 1.4 trillion gallons of water into the San Francisco Bay since 2008,” according to a 2015 report in The Wall Street Journal. “That would have been enough to sustain 6.4 million Californians for six years. Yet a survey of young adult smelt in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta last fall yielded just eight fish, the lowest level since 1967.”
