EPA Announces Release of Annual GHG Report
May 10, 2018

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced the release of its annual report on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), which highlights continued reduction in those emissions – about two percent below 2015 levels and 11 percent below 2005 levels. Between 2005 and 2016, GHG emissions in the U.S. electric power sector dropped by roughly 25 percent. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt credited U.S. business and market forces rather than regulations for the drop, stating “American ingenuity and technological breakthroughs, not top-down government mandates, have made the U.S. the world leader in achieving energy dominance while reducing emissions – one of the great environmental successes of our time.”
