US CO2 Emissions Dropped In 2008 And 2009

Posted by Phoenix Woman on May 7, 2010

The good news: US CO2 emissions dropped for two years in a row, and the second year’s drop was steeper than the first.

The better news: Only about a third of that drop was due to the world economic downturn.

The other causes: The rise in clean energy production, low natural gas prices encouraging use of that cleaner-burning fuel over oil or coal, improvements in energy efficiency, state renewable standards, and encouragement of clean energy in President Obama’s stimulus package.

The more we use clean energy and improve energy efficiency, the easier it will be to save humanity.
