US GHG Emissions Fall in 2019

Preliminary U.S. GHG Emissions Estimates for 2019 (Rhodium Group) Trevor Houser and Hannah Pitt (Jan. 07): After a sharp uptick in 2018, we estimate that U.S. GHG emissions fell by 2.1% last year based on preliminary energy and economic data. This decline was due almost entirely to a drop in coal consumption. Coal-fired power generation […]

Coal to Gas Switching Benefits

Downstream Air Pollution Impacts of Coal to Natural Gas (Nature Sustainability) Jennifer A. Burney (Jan. 06): The recent shift in the United States from coal to natural gas as a primary feedstock for the production of electric power has reduced the intensity of sectoral CO2 emissions, but—due to gaps in monitoring—its downstream pollution-related effects have […]
