US Greenhouse Gas Emissions Declined for the First Time Since 2012 According to Latest EPA Report

The Hill, February 15, 2017

Greenhouse gas emissions in the United States declined by 2.2 percent between 2014 and 2015, federal officials reported on Tuesday.  In its annual draft greenhouse gas report, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said total emissions of climate change-causing gases decreased in 2015 after back-to-back years of small growth. The EPA attributed the overall decline to numerous factors, including lower carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels, which itself came about because of less coal consumption in favor of natural gas.
