Report: U.S. Carbon Emissions From Power Production Dropped 8% Last Year

According to a report released last week by Ceres, a non-profit environmental organization, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the U.S. electric power sector fell 8% between 2018 and 2019. This is due largely to the increasingly rapid shift away from coal-fired power, according to reports. The U.S. power sector has reduced carbon emissions 30% since the sector’s peak in 2007, the report said, even as the economy grew. 7/13/2020
