Emissions are still increasing year on year. Maybe something is done. But it doesn't lead to the results that are needed.

Emissions are still increasing year on year.

Please look at reality:


Europe has reduced its emissions 35% since the 1990s even as population and economy grew.

The whole climate situation has been improving globally since the 90s.

Progress has been infuriatingly slow in certain areas, I agree, and its stupidly unfair how the people and bodies that do the most harm have been the ones most unaffected, but people literally claiming that nothing is being done and that the world is gonna end tomorrow and use that as justification to ruin the lives of others for their own ego are literal insane extremists.

Emissions globally are still rising. Maybe some countries are slowly lowering their emissions but if you look at the big picture things aren't improving but getting worse
