US Carbon Emissions Fall In 4 of 6 Years Thru 2011 & 2012 Will Be Better Still

Slowly it is dawning on the press that Uncle Sam is cutting carbon and that gas is playing a major role. The LA Times is but one example of prominent media reporting that America has cut its carbon emissions in 3 out of the last 4 years and 4 of  last 6.,0,3568947.story .

An EIA energy brief triggered the reporting.

The US carbon reduction story is getting better, much better, in 2012.  EIA data for January to May, 2012 show a 6% decline in emissions, when compared to the same period in 2011. 

Once 2012 is in the books, the US will certainly have cut carbon emissions for 4 of the last 5 years and 5 of the last 7.  No country in the world has cut more carbon than the US since 2006!
