    The US has decreased aggregate CO2 emissions since 2007, the only major country to have done so.

      So unless your position is that the US population has decreased since 2007, I can't see how your comment is anything other than denialist nonsense.

      I might add that that's 193% the emissions of a German,  283% those of a Chinese, 352% of those of a Swiss, and 20 or 30 times that of a Pakistani, African or inhabitants of other developing nations.

      So yes, the US is a problem.
