United States energy-related carbon dioxide emissions have drastically declined since 2005 as natural gas has replaced coal and oil energy sources.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has published a review of energy-related CO2 emissionsand the news is great. Although the EIA saw a slight increase in natural gas emissions, due to increased consumption trends, the overall energy-related carbon dioxide emission levels are down. And expected to remain that way through 2019.
Clean burning natural gas emits far less carbon dioxide than coal or petroleum products. In China, India and Asia, where coal and petroleum are used as their selected fuel sources, energy related carbon dioxide levels are still increasing. When you compare the CO2 emissions by fuel source, coal emits the most.
