IEA spins US CO2 emissions ‘drop’

In Polytricks, Weather on December 14, 2012 at 12:19 pm

The corporate media is trumpeting the ‘remarkable’ drop in US CO2 emissions due to fracked ‘shale gas’ (natural gas).  Apparently the US CO2 emissions dropped by 450 metric tonnes, due to using natural gas instead of coal to produce electricity.  The IEA had to also admit that this drop would also be caused by the economic depression and warmer winters.  Of course it doesn’t help that despite switching to natural gas, US CO2 emission are still going up.

I’m suspicious about the lack reports on global CO2 emission since 2010.  What is the hold-up if these figures are so crucial?  For example the 2012 IEA CO2 report uses data from 2010.  Frankly I don’t think the IEA has any credibility anyway.   The energy corporations and their media and government sock-puppets have completely muddied and distorted the whole CO2 emissions issue.
