U.S Carbon Dioxide Emissions & Intensities : Trends Across Economic Sectors Paperback / softback
Edited by Jayden T. Miller, Brittany O. Harris
Greenhouse gas emissions have increased markedly since the pre-industrial era and are increasing at such a rate that their concentration in the atmosphere is producing a warming influence on the global climate.
In order to make well-informed decisions on ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it is important to understand how the different economic sectors contribute to the production of greenhouse gases, which sectors are relatively carbon dioxide (CO2) intensive, and how these patterns have evolved over time.
This book analyses energy-related CO2 emissions and intensities for 349 industries, Government (Federal, state and local), and Households.
The 349 industries cover the entire economy, providing information on detailed sub-sectors within the aggregate sectors of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, Mining, Construction, Manufacturing, Transportation Services, and all other services.
