US Decarbonization by President


US decarbonization rates by president, measured election year to final year of term. Data as in yesterday’s post.

  • To hit -80% CO2 by 2050 requires -6.8%/year (assuming 2.0% GDP growth/year)
  • Democrats have done better than Republicans
  • Trump is the worst (with two years of data so far)
  • None have been remotely close to rate needed for deep decarbonization

  1. I think this would be more understandable if you just made the numbers positive, as you did in the previous post.
