EIA has great data this morning: 1. 2017 carbon emissions down 0.9%; 2. 2017 emissions 14% below 2005 levels; 3. Total carbon emissions from gas higher than coal; 4. Petroleum top emitter, responsible for 46% of total emissions.
The electric power sector was the only U.S. sector in which energy-related #CO2 #emissions decreased in 2017, and the 4.6% decline was enough to offset increases in all other sectors. #electricity
the long, slow, but sure death of coal good news for our air (and climate)
