The United States has lowered carbon emissions while the EU and China
continue to increase.


I'm not sure exactly what this means, but in general, I think it's fair to
say that the US has taken a more market-driven approach that includes
working with industry to decrease carbon emissions.  During the same time
frame the EU, China, and other nations and regions that tend towards more
heavy handed top-down regulatory approaches to problems such as this seem
to be having trouble making progress and are in fact still headed in the
wrong direction.

Draw your own conclusions from that.  ;)
