The US is only 15% of the climate change problem. This is bad but there is not much to be done.
We and Europe are 100 percent responsible for the present climate effects that we are witnessing now (Industrial Revolution effects). We have diminished our footprint some, but there are a lot of effects that we are still indirectly responsible for.
Western Europe has diminished it's 1990 greenhouse gas emisions by 25%-50% depending on the country whereas US greenhouse gas emissions have increased since 1990. Even though they decreased during the Obama years they are still higher than in 1990.
Western Europe has taken significant action and the United States hasn’t.
I see, so you agree with me in the form of a disagreement.
