Why do you insist on proving what a waste of time and money your education was??? As usual, you fail to understand the basic relevant statistical comparison. The amount of GDP per million dollars is absolutely irrelevant unless the size of GDP is factored in and the

*total amount of CO2 produced *is then compared. (Didn't teach you that in your grad level stat class either?)

Annual US GDP (chained 2009 dollars) in 1949: $2,008,940,000

Annual US GDP (Chained 2009 dollars) in 2017: $17, 096,017,000

US GDP is 8.5 times larger in 2017 than it was in 1949.

So.... truncating the last 6 digits and multiplying the ton of CO2 produced per $1m by the number of millions of GDP in the two years we have

in 1949 the US produced 2,204,784 metric tons of CO2

in 2017 the US produced 5,145,896 metric tons of CO2

Can you tell which number is larger?? No? Ok...

Doing the subtraction for you: 5,145,896 - 2,204,784 = 2,941,112 (these are a little rough given the truncation but this is how much more CO2 was produced in 2017 than in 1949)

Put differently, in 2017 we produced 233%

**MORE** CO2 in 2017 than in 1949.

Now...given those numbers, would you care to explain how you think the US is ???

Dumbass.
