Carbon Emissions Falling?

With US carbon emissions down 7% in four years and bigger drops expected, the United States may emerge as a global leader in cutting carbon and stabilizing the climate.

 

Lester Brown, President of the Earth Policy Institute, tells Earth Focus that new forces including life style and demographic changes are reducing the use of both coal and oil in the United States. He expects that carbon emissions could decline by as much as 20% in the United States by 2020.
