Happy New Year: EIA US CO2 Emissions

2013 January 1

I’m not making any projections here about future US CO2 emissions. To see where the decrease is occurring, I took the annual emissions and compared 2012 to the peak year of 2007. The annual values for 2012 are estimated from January to September data.

US natural gas emissions climbed 8% while petroleum emissions fell 13% and coal emissions fell 24% for an overall decline of 12.5% in five years.
